Calli’s House of Pancakes

I have something to admit…I’ve been on a SERIOUS pancake frenzy recently and I definitely DON’T hate it. Something about pancakes, this time of year, is just so comforting, you can’t possibly go wrong. (Let’s pretend for the sake of fall and pancakes, we’re not in the midst of an Indian summer right now). The crisp fall air, the changing leaves, the plaids and flannels are great and all. But my pancakes would not be complete without the delicious fall fruits (and other seasonal flavors) that are just right this time of season! My fall pancakes more than often contain one or more of the following food necessities: apples, pumpkin, maple (syrup), cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, honey, vanilla spiced chai protein powder, oats, sweet potato or butternut squash puree, and so on…I’m sure I’m forgetting something!

Anyway, with that, I’ll update you all on one of my more recent Protein Pancake Recipes! I introduce to you a flavorful fall explosion in your mouth!

Ingredients:
-1/4 Cup Organic Pumpkin Puree
-1 scoop of RAW Vanilla Chai Spiced Protein Powder
-1.5 TBSP of Unsweetened Apple Sauce
-2 Egg whites
-1 tsp of whole wheat pastry flour (optional)
-1 tsp of pure maple extract
-1/2 tsp of baking powder
-1-2 TBSP of unsweetened Vanilla almond milk (depending on the thickness)
-Cinnamon

Directions:
Mix all of all the above together in a bowl, then using a nonstick pan, add 1 TBSP of coconut oil, using med/high heat and pour your batter on, I usually use about 2 heaping spoonful’s per pancake. (FYI – my batter turned out a little too liquidy for me, so I would pour a small amount, then wait a second, and pour a little more on top to try and thicken the pancake so it didn’t run!)

For the Topping…mix the below ingredients together, warm in micro for 15-20 seconds and top)
-2 TBSP of unsweetened apple sauce
-1 tsp of pure maple extract
-cinnamon

Ingredients:

-1 mashed soft banana
-2 egg whites
-1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
-2-3 drops of French vanilla stevia
-1 tsp of Flax Seeds
-1 tsp of Hemp Seeds
-1 tsp of chia seeds
-cinnamon

For the Topping:
-2 TBSP of Unsweetened Apple Sauce mixed w/ cinnamon
-Mixed berries
-Drizzle of Honey

Directions:
Mix all of all the above together in a bowl, then using a nonstick pan, add 1 TBSP of coconut oil, using med/high heat and pour your batter on, I usually use about 2 heaping spoonful’s per pancake. Make sure to let the pancakes cook for a good 5 mins first before flipping (or look to see when they begin bubbling and rising). If they’re still sticking to the pan when you try to flip, turn the heat down a notch and then wait a few more mins. Top with apple sauce and enjoy ☺
