Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

I woke this morning craving something with pumpkin spice and the first thought that crossed my mind was pancake … sooooo I made pumpkin spice pancakes.

Here’s a question for you guys. Do you know anyone who dislikes pancakes? If you do, then ban them from your life because you  don’t need that kind of negativity 😛

Ok, let’s get back to our pumpkin spice pancakes…

You will find below all the necessary details to make those pancakes; feel free to add more almond milk or spices. I love my pancakes fluffy and rich in flavour (I add cinnamon to the batter without even looking).



These pancakes are:

  • Gluten-free
  • Wheat-free
  • High in protein
  • High in fiber



  1. 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I used Optimum Nutrition – Gold Standard Vanilla whey protein powder. Bought mine from www.sporter.com
  2. 2 Tbsp Gluten-free rolled oats
  3. 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  4. 1 Tbsp stevia
  5. 1 tsp baking powder
  6. 1 tsp cinnamon ( +/- … I usually add more because I LOVE CINNAMON)
  7. 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice ( +/-)
  8. 1/2 cup egg whites
  9. 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (+/- depending on your preferred pancake consistency, I added 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp )
  10. 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  11. 1 tsp vanilla extract



  1. Combine wet ingredients together
  2. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients together
  3. Slowly add liquid mix to dry ingredients
  4. Let the mixture sit for 2min.
  5. Place a pan on cooking stove (temperature: medium heat )
  6. Add coconut oil to pan.
  7. Pour in batter. Once you see tiny bubbles appear on the top of the pancake flip.
  8. When each side is golden brown, the pancake is ready to be served

Feel free to top with maple syrup ( not a cascade of maple syrup ;p … 1 Tbsp should suffice ), crushed nuts ( I crushed 4 pecans) or your favourite nut butter (my pick would be almond butter). Don’t forget to sprinkle cinnamon!!!
