High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes

So, the final in my pumpkin posts is going to be:

High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup dry oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBL melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Blend all ingredients in blender until well mixed.  If batter is not thin enough, add a touch of water or milk to get it the consistency of pancake batter.  Pour by TBL onto griddle.  Make sure you cook these long enough that the center gets mostly cooked.  Top with real maple syrup.

I love using a Tablespoon when I pour pancakes.  They make the perfect, cute little tiny pancakes.  Great size for little fingers to eat.  These

Headed off for my kids to attend their last soccer practice of the season… What a relief. It’s been a long season with all three of them playing!

Sounds good.

I hear you – all three of my kids are playing soccer too and one is also playing football, plus my daughter has dance. It’s crazy!

I absolutely cannot wait to make these! I may just make them tomorrow morning. I LOVE pumpkin everything – except pumpkin pie. Weird, I know ;)

I made these today. I ended up adding 2 TBSP of maple syrup to the batter. It was just enough my kids won’t ask for anything more. But I may top them with vanilla yogurt anyway. Thanks for the recipe!

I do a protein banana pancake with little or no flour (2 eggs, 1 smashed banana, tbsp ground flax or oats or nothing, splash of vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon — make 3-4 pancakes and can be multiplied for larger batches). I’m thinking of adding some pumpkin puree to that mix to see how it goes. That would be dairy free.

Hmmm, I can’t think of a non-dairy alternative to these protein pancakes. But I’ll keep you in mind when I’m experimenting!

These did not turn out for me. We make a ton of pancakes – all different kinds but this is not a keeper. It was so hard to get the insides cooked – one has been sitting on med/low heat for 20 minutes.

Bummer.. I actually make some with sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin, and it is hard to get them to cook all the way through, but I really like them when they are cooked!

Hi Amy,
I have a 5 year old daughter who has type 1 diabetes and I am looking for healthy, low carb kid friendly recipes…love the pumkin pancake recipe and will try it, but my problem is that I need to know how many carbs per serving….any ideas? Thanks so much,
Amy

Hi Amy-
The only recipes we have analyzed so far are on our meal planning site, only because they take so long to do it! For recipes we haven’t analyzed, you could use nutritiondata.com and plug in the ingredients.
This one should be pretty straightforward: 75 total for the oats, and 3 for the cottage cheese, and 10 for the pumpkin=
88 grams total and I can’t remember how many the recipe makes, but if you keep track, than just divide by how many pancakes you got out of it.!
I’m sorry you have to do that! That is a lot of work to always keep track :( Good luck!
Amy

I made these using a mixer not a blender. They were horrible. Just blended the oats first. Then blended the cottage cheese. Then added it all together and mixed. I did have to cook them for a very long time. Is this normal?

Yes! I’ve cooked them for at least 20 minutes! These aren’t for everyone, but I really love them!! Lol
Thanks Rita!

Buy a tiny “ice cream” scoop at Walmart… The type you’d expect to see in restaurant kitchens… They are about $5 I believe. They have a squeeze handle to release the contents from the scoop… I use it for kid sized pancakes (Half Dollars, I think they’re called)… Cookies… Meatball shaping… Even have used mine to scoop batter for mini cupcakes and bite-sized brownies… It makes the preparing/cooking go faster.

these look fantastic, and I’m going to make them for my kiddo. It would be awesome if you offered a printable layout option — I know, I know, this is the age of cooking with iPads and iPhones, and I do. But sometimes it’s nice to just print a recipe off quickly. Just a suggestion. :)
