Pumpkin season may be here, but this is a recipe I secretly make all year long. These Pumpkin Egg Protein Pancakes (like these Banana Egg Protein Pancakes) are one of my favorite things to make for my kids! They are healthy, filling and taste like a treat. They make a great, easy breakfast for babies and adults alike. Plus they are perfect for using up leftover pumpkin.
I especially like making these as roll-up pancakes. If you use a small nonstick pan and make one pancake at a time they roll up great. You can also cook a few at once in a larger pan if you prefer. Just be sure to cook these on low heat and let them cook for about 3 minutes, or until set, before you try to flip them.
My 5-year-old and 1-year-old have been eating me out of house and home lately. I can only image what it will be like when they’re teenagers! I love these pancakes because they keep the boys full and happy all morning. Definitely a recipe worth making all year long!
These pancakes are perfect for young babies and adults alike! Double this recipe if you're feeding more than 2-3 people.
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice)
- pinch of salt
- In a medium bowl, whisk all the ingredients together until smooth.
- Spray a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray (or grease with coconut oil) and place over medium-low heat. Pour in about 1/4 cup of batter for a small single pancake. You can also cook a few at a time in a larger nonstick pan.
- Let the pancake cook on lowish heat until set, about 3 minutes then flip and cook for another 30 seconds on the second side. Roll up for serving if desired. Enjoy!
