Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

Pumpkin Pie Spice is best enjoyed when the weather starts to cool and the leaves start to fall. The warm spices are like a friendly hug and really, that's what I think we all should start our day with. Don't have someone to hug you in the morning? Don't worry, these pancakes will be all you need. They're soft, fluffy, and full of good-for-you ingredients. 

What you'll need:
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • scant 1/4 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy) (about 3.5 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp almond flour
  • 3 tbsp hydrolyzed collagen*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
What to do:
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, milk and maple syrup. In another bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet, whisking just until no lumps remain. 
  2. Heat a skillet with a little fat of choice (I like to use coconut oil or ghee) over medium heat. Cook pancakes using an ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup, about 1-2 minutes each side. 
*Hydrolyzed collagen is not the stuff you make jello with. Be sure to get the ones that will dissolve in water completely; both Great Lakes and Vital Proteins are two brands I've used. :)
