Fall into the season with warmly spiced pumpkin protein pancakes that are light, fluffy and loaded with protein thanks to our No Yolking™ 100 % Egg White Protein Powder. The added protein will help to even out blood sugar level from the carbs and sugars, so go ahead, add a drizzle of maple syrup to that stack!

Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: about 24 pancakes
2 cups (500 mL) gluten-free pancake batter (homemade or store-bought)
1 cup (250 mL) pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
4 tsp (20 mL) *pumpkin spice blend
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) Muskoka Mornings® No Yolking™ – 100 % Egg White Protein Powder
2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut oil or organic butter, melted
Canadian maple syrup or local honey
- Prepare pancake batter according to package direction. Gently stir in pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice blend and salt; set aside.
- Beat egg white powder, using a hand blender or stand mixer, on high speed with 3/4 cup (175 mL) water for 2 to 3 minutes or until whites hold a stiff peak. Stir one-third of the whites into the prepared pancake batter until well combined. Gently fold remain whites into batter until only a few streaks remain.
- Heat a flat griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat; brush with some melted oil. Pour 1/4 cup (60 mL) portions of batter into rounds on the griddle. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until small bubbles begin to form and pop on the surface. Flip and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
- Hold cooked pancakes in a low, warm oven until ready to serve. Top with pecans and maple syrup to serve.
Tip: Cooked pancakes can be stacked between sheets of wax paper and stored in an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to 1 month. Reheat gently in the toasted before serving. Serve with one of our Hot Beverages, such as our Classic Protein Latte.
