Here is the recipe:

  • 1 Large Egg White
  • 1 Ounce Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or Regular Milk/Other Milk Substitute)
  • 1/4 Cup (28g) Almond Flour (or Peanut, Coconut, or Oat Flour)
  • 1 Scoop (30g) Vanilla Protein Powder (Optional)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup (61g) Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder

  • Fat: 15g
  • Saturated Fat: 1g
  • Sodium: 244mg
  • Carbs: 11g
  • Fiber: 7g
  • Sugar: 6g
  • Protein: 37g

Combine all of your ingredients into a bowl aside from your Chocolate Chips. Mix everything together until the chunks are gone. Take out a plate, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour half of your mix onto it. Top your pancakes with some Chocolate Chips (or whatever else you want). Microwave for 1 minute, wait 5 seconds, and microwave for an additional 45 seconds. Remove and repeat. Mouthgasm!


  • If you’re making smaller pancakes they’ll usually cook much quicker so keep an eye on them!
  • If you want them sweeter add in 1 tablespoon of sweetener to the recipe (helps if you’re not using a good tasting protein powder)!
  • If you don’t have protein powder you can make these without it just add in a bit more flour if your batter isn’t thick enough!
