I have talked about these Pumpkin Protein Pancakes before, but I just had to post the recipe again because it is just so delicious!!! I found this recipe on the Muscle and Fitness Hers website, but it's written by Emily Zaler, author of The EZ Whey Cookbook! Emily has a recipe for EVERYTHING that is clean, protein packed and delicious!! You can check out her website, http://emilyzaler.webs.com, for more info :) Here is the recipe! OH I've added the topping that I normally use when I make the pancakes also...
INGREDIENTS (for one serving)
1/2 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
½ Cup Oats (I like to pulse in blender or food processor to make oat flour, then use)
3 Egg Whites
1/3 Cup Pumpkin (Try to get an organic, no salt or sugar added variety)
2 tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
Stevia to taste
Pumpkin Pie spice to taste
Blend all together. Cook in a pan, like you would cook a pancake :) with non-stick cooking spray
1/4 cup Orange juice
1/2 tsp honey
1 packet stevia
1/2 small banana (sliced thin)
Put all ingredients in a pot. Bring to boil. Turn heat LOW and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve HOT over pancakes.
ENJOY this one :)
Ok I wanted to make these in the morning but only have chocolate/mint whey powder. Is there anything else that might work to substitute for that 1/2 scoop of vanilla?
Hey Barbara, I actually haven't tried them with any other powder except for Vanilla! I imagine that vanilla would taste the best with the pumpkin so I actually wouldn't be brave enough to try with another flavor LOL you can go be as brave as you wanna be...ReplyDelete
LOL....I think I'll get the Vanilla....I have BIG doubts about choc/mint and pumpkin together...lolReplyDelete
