One of the reasons to re-post these amazing healthy pumpkin protein pancakes is to let you know I’m still eating them on a weekly basis! They help me stay on track with my diet but makes it feel like I’m indulging at the same time.

The best part is they’re protein pancakes without protein powder!

How to make Protein Pumpkin Pancakes

The process is very easy and the main ingredients are egg whites, rolled oats and pumpkin puree. For the pumpkin puree it can be homemade or the canned ones you get at the grocery store.

  1. Grind the oatmeal first by using a coffee grinder, magic bullet or a blender (I used the magic bullet)
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again.
  3. Set a small non stick pan to low-medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  4. Add 1/4 cup scoop of the mixture to the warm pan and cook each side until the edges become solid. About a minute on each side.
  5. Serve warm with maple syrup or your favorite toppings.

Another reason is that I’ve gotten a little better at this food photography thing and wanted to improve the photos I took of these pancakes last time. Sometimes I cringe looking at some of my early food photos.   It’s a great reminder how much I’ve grown, but also a humbling feeling to know that I still have so much more to learn!

    Really nice… only note I have is maybe a bit too much baking powder. I used the 2 tbsp, and it left a filmy feeling on my teeth. I might try with only 1 tbsp next time.

    Looks yum! How would these be without any sweeteners? Trying to cut out sugar and I don’t use no calorie sugars

      I don’t think it will be too bland as the spices and the pumpkin give a lot of flavor already. I think you may be used to already to the less sweet flavors and it will work great for you. Let me know if how it comes out!
