These are great Post Workout. They are filled with Protein and Healthy carbs. Heck, maybe even great anytime of the day, especially when you are feeling like something sweet! :) I love them topped with Banana or berries, pure maple syrup or nut butter. If I'm really feeling crazy then I'll do all three. ;)
Let me know if you try them out! I cook these up if I'm feeling like something different for breakfast besides eggs or a protein shake.
Protein Pumpkin Pancakes
5 egg whites
1/2 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin, canned
1/3 cup oat flour (just blend oats in a blender for a couple seconds and you'll have oat flour. I prefer to use gluten free oats. Can also sub with Coconut Flour to make this naturally gluten free and Paleo, try 2 TBS Coconut Flour. Makes it a little harder to flip, but tastes great!)
1/2 scoop protein powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
few shakes of Cinnamon
few shakes of Pumpkin Pie Spice
Blend well and cook on non stick or greased pan. I make them only about 3-4 inches round so it's easier to flip. They will have a different texture than regular pancakes. Cook on Low/Med to give the middle time to cook up.
*top with fruit, natural nut butter, pure maple syrup or honey.
These are approved by my kids! Yay!
