Good morning all! You may, or may not know that I love my protein pancakes. In fact, if you’ve followed my Instagram for a while now, you’d find that there was a good deal of time last year where they were made literally every day (seriously, every single day). It was to the point that Mike (my trusty taste-tester and honest boyfriend), told me it was getting a little excessive with the protein pancake pictures. He was definitely right, although I had/have no shame. They are that good. 

Anyway, back to the point! It’s the morning, I am ready for breakfast and my morning intake of protein. So clearly I need to incorporate my homemade pumpkin puree, right? Right. So, I give to you, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined-sugar free pumpkin pancakes (with chocolate chips).

    1. I have made these pancakes twice in the past week and they are simply amazing. My husband isn’t a huge pumpkin fan and even he loved them! Everyone do yourself a favor and give this recipe a try! I promise they won’t dissappoint! 🙂

    2. very good!! made double the batch for 2 people- enough to feel satisfied. Instead of coconut flour I used multigrain pancake/waffle mix from Trader Joes. Great recipe! definitely rave-worthy!

    3. My never turn out right ): I use Vega vanilla nutr. shake so I feel like it should still be fine but they never stay together nor do they cook right! What might I be doing wrong??
