Makes Approx. 18 Pancakes 5” Diameter Pancakes
Cook Time: 15-20 Mins, Low to Medium Heat

Dry Ingredients (Base):

1 cup flour

1 cup Whey Protein Powder (I used vanilla)

1 tsp salt

5 tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients (Base)

2 eggs

2+ 1/2 cup almond milk or whole milk

Wet Ingredients (Chocolate Chip Pancakes)

3 tbs butter, melted

chocolate chips (or you can use berries instead, very versatile recipe!)

Wet Ingredients (Pumpkin Spice Pancakes)

3 tbl pumpkin puree

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


Begin by combining your dry base ingredients in a bowl; whisk. (Note: if you only want to make one flavor pancake, half the dry base ingredient amount, yield will be 9 pancakes.)

To your dry ingredient, add your milk and eggs. Mix until combined. This is your base batter. (Note: if you only want to make one flavor pancake, half the wet (base) ingredient amount to 1 egg and 1 & 1/4 cup milk, yield will be 9 pancakes.)

Divide the batter into two separate bowls.

To one bowl, stir in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice, set aside.

To another bowl, stir in melted butter.

Cook pancakes on low to medium heat. if making the chocolate chip pancakes, add chocolate chips on top.

Flip after bubbles have formed and begin to slow in formation. Cook flipped side for about a minute or until done.
