    I made these for my mom for mothers day and she couldn’t tell they weren’t traditional pumpkin pancakes. they were light and truly delicious. Keep on postin’!

      Pumpkin is my absolutely favorite this time of the year here!

    Derek, these are very good.I never really ate pumpkin other than in pie. After hearing you talk about how nutritious it is, I have tried and liked your pumpkin pie oatmeal, pumpkin pie shake and now these pancakes. Now how about a recipe for egg muffins. They can make for a convenient breakfast as you can freeze them and reheat portions as needed. Just an idea. Thanks!

    Once again, nice work bro! The pumpkin is great but leaving it out creates the perfect palate for incorporating anything you want! Banana, blueberry, whatever! 3.3 grams of fat, 3 grams of sugar, and 54 grams of protein based on my calcs)?! Dang man…. Keep killin’ it!

    FANTASTIC!!!! These turned out so good, I made a double batch for breakfast for the next two days. I used Isopure Creamy Vanilla, subbed Gerber Baby Oatmeal (to lower carbs), cheesecake extract for vanilla and added nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. Topped them with myoatmeal PBlean pumpkin spice mixed with Walden Farms pancake syrup…Hands down, THE BEST “healthy” pumpkin pancake recipe I have tried!

    5 stars
    Made them last Sunday and today es well, they are sooo delicious and very filling, even though my stomach capacity is usually infinite and I don’t get full easily! I added a Tbsp of psyllium husk and used 2 eggs instead of 1 egg and 2 egg whites. Amazing! This will be my go to pancake recipe whenever I have pumpkin around! 😄
