Paleo Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
PALEO PUMPKIN PROTEIN PANCAKES RECIPE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Just 1 cup of cooked pumpkin offers 200% your daily needed vitamin A in the form that best protects your vision. The soluble fiber and zinc in pumpkin play a role for blood sugar and insulin regulation while the phytosterols in the seeds aid in lowering your bad cholesterol levels. The abundance of antioxidants serve to scavenge free radicals while protecting against oxidative damage and decrease inflammation in the body.
Makes 2 servings (6-8 small pancakes)
¼ cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 scoop Naturally Nourished Grassfed Whey Protein
pinch sea salt
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons maple syrup (omit for keto)
1 Tablespoon butter or ghee to cook
Combine the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, sea salt and whey protein. Whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, vanilla and maple syrup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well combined. Melt butter or ghee in a skillet over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into the skillet (should create a 3-inch pancake). Cook until bubbles begin to appear, then carefully flip and cook until golden brown, about two more minutes.
