yummy yummy! I have a similar recipe I wanted to share because I've made them and they're delicious. I don't have the nutritional content though...booo


Pumpkin Paleo Pecan Pancakes

Recipe:
1/2 C pumpkin puree, organic, unsweetened
1/2 C almond butter
1/4 C chopped pecans, toasted
2 eggs
2 T honey
1 T vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg

Preheat a nonstick griddle to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour onto hot griddle (desired pancake size). Let them cook for about 2-3 minutes (you'll see the pancakes start to bubble and cook on the edges when they're ready to flip). Flip and cook a couple more minutes. This recipe makes about 4, 4-inch pancakes!

The protein powder would probably be great, especially since the pumping adds a lot of moisture. The big thing to think about when adding protein powder to pancakes, is that you need to add something that will keep them moist, so I think it would be just fine in one of these recipes!!! I on the other hand make mine just regular and have my protein on the side. I love the Chicken Breakfast sausage from Trader Joe's and scrambled egg whites!!
