Macros

Serving Size: 3 medium size pancakes
  • Protein - 10.2 g
  • Carbs - 26.5 g
  • Fat - 3.1 g

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup organic pumpkin (~200 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • Sauce: 1 cup berry medley (frozen), 1 teaspoon Lakanto sweetener, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl whisk 4 egg whites (or whole eggs) until partially fluffy.
  2. Add 1 cup pumpkin puree and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.
  3. Add 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt. Continue whisking until batter is smooth and thick.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet with coconut oil spray (or 1/2 tsp butter) over medium heat. Using a 1/4 scoop measurer, ladle pancakes and flatten the tops with your finger or spatula (3 medium-sized pancakes fit on my skillet).
  5. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Work in 2 batches. (My batch made 6 medium-sized pancakes).

Triple Berry Sauce:

  1. In a small saucepan add 1 cup frozen berries, 1 tsp Lakanto monk fruit sweetener and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until berries are tender and juicy and sauce has thickened, approx 6-8 minutes.
  2. Keep warm while you make the pancakes.

 

Suggestions:

  • Egg whites can be swapped for whole eggs or a mixture of both.
  • Pumpkin can be swapped for ripe mashed banana, cooked sweet potato or butternut squash.
  • Pumpkin spice can be swapped for just cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Triple Berry sauce can be swapped for just one berry of choice. Frozen recommended.
  • Lakanto monk fruit sweetener can be swapped for honey, maple syrup or stevia.
  • For more protein – simply add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder or collagen powder.
