  • Summary

    Unbelievable. These little "pancakes" can be made with just three ingredients, but I've added some baking powder and whey protein in this recipe. They're a super quick and healthy breakfast or snack. They come out with almost a crêpe texture. You can add sugar or other sweetener if you don't plan on using a sweet topping. You can also ditch the protein if you're not looking to supplement yours. Each little pancake is just around 48 calories!

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional but recommended)
    • 2 tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder (optional; you can also add a touch of vanilla extract instead)
