Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

These pumpkin pancakes are adapted from a recipe of Rachel Gregory's at Metflexlife.com - I added a bit of my own flair to them to turn them into what I think might be my favorite pancakes ever!


These are more crepey/puddingy than bready in terms of texture but I much prefer that! If you are looking for more of a traditional pancake mimic, this might not be what you are looking for. I always serve these topped with greek yogurt! SO good! And yes, you need a food scale to measure the ingredients out.

For 1 serving (yes you can make multiples to feed more folks!)

70 grams Pumpkin Puree
15 grams Micellar Casein Protein*(I use Legion Vanilla)
2 whole Eggs
1 Egg white
14 grams Pork Panko or ground Pork Rinds
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
5-6 drops Stevia Glycerite (can use small amount of other sweetener if desired)

Coconut Spray for cooking (butter or other spray also ok!)

Feel free to top with whatever suits your fancy... but here's what I use:
3 oz Fage Yogurt mixed with a few drops Stevia Glycerite and if you have it a tiny drop of Maple Extract
Sometimes I add some sugar free syrup on top of that! RxSugar is a good allulose based one!

* About the protein powder - you want Casein not whey or egg for the consistency of these pancakes to be right. A Milk Protein Isolate like used in Keto Chow would be an acceptable substitute however! 


Beat everything together with a fork, there will be lumps. Let sit 5 minutes, then beat again - should become mostly smooth.

Heat your pan or griddle with some butter or coconut or avocado oil spray.
If you want big or small pancakes, both will work - spoon/pour appropriate amount depending on size preference.
The batter will be a bit thicker than normal pancakes, but should pour ok!

Cook on medium to medium high for 2-3 minutes, then test to see if the top is set enough to flip without oozing. When it is, carefully flip and cook other size 2-3 minutes.

Continue into all finished and top as desired! Eat! :)

These keep just fine in the fridge, so if you want to make a double batch so you can have them again tomorrow, feel free! 
Just pop in the microwave 15-25 seconds or so - warm don't over cook them :) 

My Macros (before toppings) on these are:  15.3 grams fat, 36.8 grams protein and 8.6 grams total carbs (319 calories)
