INGREDIENTS

  • 1 scoop (36g) Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Plant vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup (240g) unsweetened almond milk
  • ⅓ cup (81g) packed pure pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons (27g) melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons (15g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (white or apple cider)
  • 1 cup (125g) flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish by spraying well with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the wet ingredients (almond milk, pumpkin, coconut oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and vinegar) in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl stir together the flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix with a fork, making sure to break up any clumps of protein powder.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring with a fork or spatula until combined. The batter will be thick and lumpy, do not overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Spread evenly with a spatula into a thin, even layer.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center just comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  7. Slice into 8 squares. Enjoy with your favorite pancake toppings such as maple syrup, nut butter, or fruit (macros not included.)

NOTES

Store extra pancakes in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
