Wicked Good Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Umm, yum.

I made Pumpkin Protein Pancakes for breakfast this morning, and they totally rocked my world. The texture and taste reminded me of a pumpkin muffin, so I must have said “oh my gosh, these are delicious” at least three or four times while I was eating them. And, just as awesome, they’re loaded with protein! This pancake recipe has close to 30g!

Oh, that adorable pug face”¦ it gets me every time, but I didn’t share my pancakes with Murphy this morning. I did, however, give him a big pug hug once I was finished eating.

Speaking of adorable pugs, I’m not quite sure what to think of this pug-bunny thing:


Mal thinks it’s cute; I think it’s a bit creepy.



  1. There is nothing better than a breakfast that ROCKS YOUR WORLD, especially one that involvest pumpkin. I can’t wait to make these guys. Any suggestions for a protein powder? Or supplement? I don’t typically keep protein powder in the house!

  2. Just made this …. Absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to eat all of them tomorrow morning!!! I didn’t have any flaxseed, but I think I will get this over the weekend, so that I can try the whole recipe.

  3. So good! Made the batter yesterday and finally made them today. Delicious and worth the wait. Can’t wait to finish up the can of pumpkin into smoothies and more of these tasty pancakes!!

  4. Thanks for the recipe. I had canned pumpkin and was wondering what I could do with it. I usually add it to my protein shakes because I enjoy pumpkin, but when I came across this I was hooked! Thanks again.

  6. Hi Tina, quick question for you: these do look fabulous, but I’m confused where you buy canned pumpkin during the “off season”. My local grocery stores only carry it during the fall (September – Thanksgiving) but since you make pumpkin foods so often you must have a secret to obtaining it in spring/summer. Many thanks!

    1. My grocery store sells it year-round. I believe Whole Foods does too, and you can always buy it online from Amazon! 🙂

  7. YUM! I just made these (with some modifications…no banana, so more pumpkin!) and they were amazing! I’m always looking for recipes where I can use my vanilla protein powder, and anything with pumpkin (they are sold in such large cans lol). I also topped mine with pumpkin peanut butter. If you haven’t tried it before, you should definitely make it! I found it in a healthy dessert blog: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/09/13/pumpkin-nut-butter/

  8. For some reason the link to the protein
    powder isn’t working. Does anyone know the name
    of the protein powder? Thanks!

  9. Saw this on Lauren Hefez’s blog and it’s already prepped for breakfast tomorrow! Sounds seriously delish, can’t wait. Thanks for sharing!
