It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Good evening! 🙂

If there’s one thing that you should know about me, at all, it’s that I am a basic white girl.  And I say that in the most adoring & positive way possible.  Not only do I need to get my daily Starbucks fix, but I also start celebrating the month of October in August.  That means that as soon as the pumpkin spice label hits the store shelves, I own it.  This year these purchases have included pumpkin spice coffee, decaf coffee, tea, decaf tea, air fresheners, gum, peanut butter, the list goes on.  I also keep canned pumpkin the house year round.  That’s because I like to make pumpkin protein pancakes whenever I have a free second.  Why? Because they’re super easy, healthy, and make me feel like I’m having a fall-filled treat every time I get a chance.  There’s also like a million ways to make them and I like playing around with different protein powders, toppings, etc.

This morning after a beautiful scenic run complete with picturesque autumnal foliage (I’m really into this, guys) I made Cinnamon Walnut Protein Pancakes… SO DELICIOUS!

RECIPE:

1/2c old fashioned oats

1/4c canned pumpkin puree

3/4 scoop Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl protein powder

3/4c egg whites

1/2tsp cinnamon

1/8tsp baking powder

~7 walnuts

TOPPING: Cinnamon, 1/4 scoop Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl protein powder and add unsweetened almond milk to fit consistency

MACROS: 500CAL- 38C/14F/52P

I eat them all, BUT if you’re not into that, you can always save half for later, they’re good in the fridge or freezer with some almond butter. yummm!

Enjoy!
