Here is another delicious recipe from the Vega Team (myvega.com)!  I just had to share.  These pancakes taste like a dessert!  You’ll feel like it’s dessert time rather than breakfast time… ha ha.

Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

Ingredients: (makes about 12 pancakes)

1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour (I used amaranth flour)

1/2 cup Vega Sport Performance Protein, Vanilla (I used MRM Veggie Protein, Vanilla)

1/3 cup ground raw walnuts

1  tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp allspice

1 tsp dried ground ginger (or fresh)

1 1/2 cups almond milk (I used homemade cashew milk)

1 cup pumpkin puree (I used Trader Joe’s Organic Pumpkin)

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla

Procedure:

1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients (flour, Vega Protein Powder, ground walnuts, baking soda, spices).

2. In a separate bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients (almond milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla).

3. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix just until fully combined.

4. Start making your pancakes in a heated pan (medium heat).  Melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil and start to make your pancakes.  Or you can use coconut oil spray.
