Calories: 156kcal


  • 2 tbsp butter, for frying
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups vanilla protein powder (I used whey protein)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice (or a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Topping ideas

  • Shredded coconut
  • almond butter
  • pumpkin seeds
  • Chopped walnuts or pecans
  • maple syrup


  • In a large bowl, mix all ingredients for pancakes together until just combined.
  • Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add a small spoonful of pancake mixture to test, making sure skillet is hot enough to add pancake batter. Once bottom of tester pancake starts to form, flip and then remove from heat.
  • Add pancake batter by large ladle scoop, cooking four pancakes at a time and flipping once a bottom starts to form, about 5 minutes.
  • Freeze pancakes up to 2 months, reheating in microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or reheating in the toaster. Top with optional toppings and serve!
