I love fall and I love pumpkin.

This morning I was not feeling super hot, but I was determined to make a healthy choice for breakfast.  I spied some pumpkin and recalled a recipe for pumpkin protein pancakes.  I went from memory:

pumpkin puree (about a 1/2 cup)

protein powder (1 scoop)

egg whites (I used 3)

cinnamon

I mixed it up.  Heated the pan.  Poured it in.  Made two pancakes.  And….tasted like crap.  Sorry, but it did.   Pumpkin crap.  So I added a little butter and syrup and it was a little better.  Saved the 2nd one for work and ate it with a little nut butter on it for my mid morning snack.   A little better (thanks to Justin’s honey almond butter).  However, in spite of the bad luck in the kitchen,  I’m not giving up on these.

I found two other recipes, one with 4 ingredients (swapping cinnamon for vanilla) and the other many more ingredients (I’ll definitely go with the more is better, personally).  I missed the sweet; however, I will say it was filling and definitely kept me going all morning long!
