Pumpkin protein pancakes (gluten free)

November 13, 2015

I love pancakes and being that I’ve been full of Autumn spirit because it’s pumpkin season, pumpkin spice pancakes were definitely in order!

The secret to these packed pancakes are the egg whites! By whipping them up, you’re guaranteed super fluffy pancakes!

These pancakes have become my go to breakfast every single weekend morning. πŸ˜›

I wish I could have it in the morning more often but sleep becomes a priority when you are on practicum and need to make plans for it late into the night the day before.

With that being said, that doesn’t stop me from just having these on weekends because sometimes when my cravings for it are intense enough (which has been probably every other day), I end up making a batch to have for dessert!

And me tell you, these are AMAZING when topped with pumpkin spice fro-yo and toasted chopped pecans! πŸ˜›

: breakfast
Yield: 2
  • 2 scoops (28g) Quest multipurpose baking mix protein powder
  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • ⅓ cup egg whites (or sub 1.5 eggs)
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons sweetner of choice
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • sprinkle of pumpkin spice
  • pinch of salt
  1. Whip the egg whites with an electric mixer on until soft peaks form. This step is optional but I highly recommend it for extra fluffy voluminous pancakes!
  2. Mix the buckwheat flour, pumpkin puree, milk, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and salt together in a medium bowl until combined. Fold in the egg whites.
  3. Cook pancakes (see note)

    1. I like their baking mix because it doesnt have any flavor to it I always find flavored protein powders too artificially flavored? That and since this one isn’t flavored, indecisive me can make it any flavor I want!

    1. No worries Judi, I was sure to drench them in some after the photo πŸ˜› I just don’t like my pancakes soggy and soaked in syrup and you know how long it takes to get a good food shot πŸ˜‰
