Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe
During my training program, I have been enjoying pure pumpkin. It’s a great source of fibrous carbohydrates for any meal plan. Add a dash of cinnamon and stevia to it, and it’s a delicous snack!
Perfect pre and post workoutsnack
Make a large amount and put a few servings in the freezer
Ingredients (7 servings = 35 small pancakes):
180 g – 2 cups oats
6 egg whites
200 g – 1 cup cottage cheese
300 g – ½ cup pumpkin puree (canned or make yourself, just boil some pumpkin flesh until soft, drain the water and mash)
Stevia granulated, to your own taste (I used 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon pumpkin spices (if you don’t have this you can use cinnamon with a bit of ginger and nutmeg)
Optional: honey and chopped pecans
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for a few minutes.
Melt a bit coconut oil (or use non-stick baking spray) in a skillet over medium heat.
Depending on the size of your pan pour 4 to 5 little pancakes in the pan.
When the edges of your pancake turn gold/brown you can turn them this will be about 3 minutes. Turn and cook the other side for about 1-2 minutes.
Optional: serve the pancakes with honey and chopped pecans.
