Pumpkin-Coconut Protein Pancakes

Fluffy Protein Pancakes

Ingredients

2 scoops protein powder (plant-based, soy-free, unsweetened)
2 chia-flax eggs
½ cup pumpkin
¼ cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk, carrageenan free*
1-2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tsp. cinnamon, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until a batter forms. If batter is too thick, add more coconut milk. (For fluffier pancakes, blend ingredients.)
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, melt coconut oil and coat skillet. Pour or scoop desired amount of batter into pan. Once the edges begin to bubble, flip pancake with spatula.
  3. Serve pancakes topped with favorite fruit and nut butter, or drizzled with coconut oil.
