However, you are trying to live a gluten free life, have a wheat allergy or you’re simply just watching your weight! Shucks – pancakes don’t usually fall into the category of ‘foods you can eat.’
Don’t fret – I found this awesome recipe online from Undressed Skeleton once again that will turn your pancake frown upside down. Gluten Free, Flourless, Pumpkin Pancakes.
Is this for real – you might ask? Yes – it’s for real and so simple to make. Let’s get cooking.
You will need: 1 cage free egg, ¼ cup canned pumpkin puree (you know, the cans you buy for pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving), 1 cap full of vanilla extract, 1 scoop whey protein powder (make sure it’s gluten free) and 1 tbsp. cinnamon.
Add the protein powder, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl – and stir away! Turn on your stove-top – and spray a pan with cooking spray. Scoop out a spoonful of this yummy mixture onto the frying pan. And cook away. You will make these again, I assure you.
Add syrup as desired. If you are watching your sugar intake, I’d use this moderately. But, you can add low-fat whipped cream to the top or how about berries? The choices are endless. And, a flourless pancake does exist. Yay – this is incredible.
