¼ cup (63g) egg whites
½ cup (120g) pumpkin puree
½ cup (45g) large oat flakes
½ (15g) scoop protein powder
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin spice
1 tbsp (15g) Chocolate chips
1. Mix it all together
Simply mix your dry ingredients first, then add the egg whites and pumpkin. You can either whisk it with a fork or throw it in the magic bullet for 30 seconds.
2. Throw it in a pancake flipper
Cook them like regular pancakes, just with a little more patience. If you want one big pancake, throw them in a pre-heated pan and then in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes or so.
3. Eat it for gains
Sprinkle with some extra cinnamon and/or splenda, sugar free maple syrup, peanut butter or whatever your heart desires. You can pretty well put anything you want on it and it will be delicious!
