INSTRUCTIONS

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, and maple syrup until well combined. Ensure a smooth consistency for a uniform pancake batter.

Step 1

In a separate bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Whisk the dry ingredients together to evenly distribute the leavening agents and spices.

Step 2

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to dense pancakes. The batter should be thick but pourable.

Step 3

Preheat a griddle or non-stick pan over medium heat. Lightly coat the surface with cooking spray or butter.

Step 4

Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes per side.
