This yummy pancake recipe proves that pancakes aren’t just for breakfast. Packed with protein from the pumpkin, it’s like the holidays, any time. Add chocolate chips to maybe even consider them for dessert!


2 eggs
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 heaping scoop of protein powder
1 tablespoon of coconut oil for cooking
Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon

Optional twist: Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

To make pancakes:

  1. Blend eggs, pumpkin, and protein powder on high for 30 seconds–1 minute.
  2. Let sit for 1–2 minutes to decide if thickness is enough.
  3. If too thick, add an egg. If too thin, add more protein powder OR coconut flour. (Every protein powder will have a slightly different consistency, so if you add an egg, do one half at a time!)
  4. Place the cooking pan on stove at medium-high, coat with coconut oil.
  5. Pour batter into small circles on pan, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice and chocolate chips (optional).
  6. Flip when there are even bubbles throughout the top of the pancake. Serve hot!
