Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes Recipe


Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes

Fall is here and you know what that means… #pumpkineverything! Ladies, you know what I’m talking about. Any first sense of the season changing – a leaf falling, darker mornings, cooler evenings, Halloween decor lining the aisles at Target – and it’s a mad rush to Trade Joe’s to snag some of their organic pureed pumpkin!

This makes a veggie-packed egg white omelette the best option for night-time! I use egg whites instead of whole eggs for a couple of reasons. 1) They’re 100% protein.
