Yes, thats right pumpkin pancake! YUM! What better way to start the day then with pancakes! and the best part is, this is somewhat a healthier version of the regular pancakes. I used Red Mills 10 grain pancake/waffle mixture,a bit of protein powder (you can use Hemp seeds as well) and of course, a heaping scoop of pumpkin puree.
1 cup Red Mills pancake batter mix
2 eggs, seperated
1 cup of water
1 tbs oil
A handful of raisins, nuts, walnuts
a heaping scoop of pumpkin puree
A dash of pumpkin spice, or a dash cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg
First, seperate eggs from yolk. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside. In a seperate bowl, beat egg yolks and add into the pancake mix. Add oil and water. Mix well and add the raisins and nuts (or you can skip and just add protein powder/hemp seeds).
Gently fold the egg white mixture into the pancake batter. Add the spoonful of pumpkin puree and mix until there are no lumps. Add the dashes of spices as well. Heat griddle/pan high on stove top, spray with Pam, and scoop mixture. I usually flip them once little bubbles start to surface, Typically 1-2 minutes or so each side.
SO I’m also adding a little bonus. Some people like syrup or butter on their pancakes. If you want more pumpkin flavor, I made a real super easy whip topping. Basically 1-2 tablesppon of fat free whip topping and 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree. Mix together and scoop right on top of you staff of super awesome pumpkin pancake. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon.
