Clean & Perfect Pumpkin Protein Pancake Recipe!


Umm so after some SERIOUS issues with the newsletter going into literally everyone’s SPAM folder (pulling hair out and have been with customer service reps all day) I have literally gone wacko. So now, I will just post the recipe.

Yesterday, I searched HIGH and LOW for the perfect pumpkin protein pancake recipe. Uhh 4P anyone!? Looked on a million healthy living blogger sites, clean eating sites, and bodybuilding forums. Couldn’t find one so I was like, screw it, let’s have play time in the kitch. And you know what…it was a success!!!! I was so surprised. So here’s my very own recipe for a super clean, super delish pumpkin pancake!

“Blogilates Perfect Pumpkin Protein Pancake”

– 1 TBS ground flax seed

NUTRITION FACTS (1 serving = entire recipe): 211 cals, 4g fat, 9g carbs, 36g protein 


 With cottage cheese. The best! (Someone on FB suggested putting cinnamon on the cottage!)

With sugarfree strawberry jam. Meh…

With peanut butter. Good, but didn’t allow me to savor the pumpkin flavor.

For those of you on the 90 Day Challenge, you can eat these for bfast anyday! Super clean, yummy, and good for you. You can even have them for lunch and dinner. I am kind of addicted.

Please post your pics on facebook once you make them! How else LOVES pumpkins!!!! And Fall!!!! And the Holidays!!! Meeeeeeee…..

    I like to (I gues sauté is the word) apple slices with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and about a teaspoon of homey and use that as a topper, but I have a real sweet tooth. :)

    I’m going to try to make these like a crepe, I’m think more liquid (almond milk maybe) and then roll them with this cream cgeese/nut filing. Was wondering if you tried crepe and if so what modifications you used. Thanks!

    I also tweeked this recipe a bit but as the consistency was to mushy for me.. Pumpkin puree has alot of moisture itself so I cut back the amount of pumkin and also only added one egg white as well as less of the milk. Then i added a bit of gound oatmeal. Then I kept the griddle at a lower temp and cooked slower for a longer time. Much better!

    I just made these and they were delicious! At first they were too runny so I ended up adding 2 Tbsp of flour (replacing the 1 Tbsp of ground flaxseed because I don’t have any on hand). I paired them with maple agave nectar and I ate some of them with low calorie pumpkin butter <3 SOOOOO YUMMY! Thanks Cassey!

  • Claudia Luckey

    Mine were way too watery. Followed everything

  • Alexis

    Mine turned into complete pudding cakes. This was awful :(
    Idk what I did wrong :( I followed the recipe exactly.

  • Shannon

    Can’t wait to get in on this tomorrow morning. Still in such an autumnal mood as the light changes.
    Quick question…does heating up protein powder destroy..uh, protein?
    I’ve heard people argue and wonder if you know, Cassey!
    Thanks, much love 4eva

  • Farah

    Is the almond milk sweetened or unsweetened?

  • Andrea

    I’ve made these twice and they are delicious. I am confused about the texture of the pancake though – it doesn’t seem to cook all the way through. I’ve followed the recipe exactly. Is this the correct consistency?

    • Alexis

      same problem…I think im going to add almond meal and a tiny bit of flour next time…or Cassey will have to come to my house to show me lol

  • Ana

    Made these and not bad. Not delicious but not bad. Once I manipulate the recipe it will taste a little better. Think the 1 scoop of protein powder was too much for my taste buds. I didn’t add the stevia, don’t like the taste and added a whole egg (more protein & nutrition).

    What is the fibre content for this recipe?

  • Lily

    Can you get flax seeds at Walmart?

  • Noa

    What can I sub for the protein powder?

    • Lily

      I don’t know how to comment so I am just replying. I have the same question and what can I sub for the flax seed too. I don’t even know what flax seed is…

      • Kristin

        you CAN get milled flaxseed at walmart! It’s with the flower. I bought mine at GNC for about $7.. packs lots of healthy omegas!!

    • Laura

      I sub in flax seed meal since i believe they have about the same consistency.

    What is the size and how many pancakes makes the serving?

    • Lisandracobos

      Never mind, just saw ;)

  • I love this recipe! I top it with PB2 and I omit the Almond Milk, and they turn out very nice! I’ll try adding the Almond Milk next time, but I just forgot to this time!

  • Crystal

    how do u make your cute lil pancakes look like that ? do u have a specific scooper that u use?

  • Jenn

    These were delicious!

  • Kayt

    Great recipe, thanks :)

  • Sarh

    I made these without the flax seed because I didn’t have any..After thoroughly cooking on both sides, the insides still seemed a little mushy…Is the flax seed necessary to get the consistency right ?

    • yes for sure, that is what they are for!

  • Great recipe. Inspirational blog. It’s nice to try a food like this that lets me branch out from my same old egg white breakfast. Tastes pretty good! Worked best cooking them on low heat. I think I am inspired to try and make up a banana version.

  • Hi! Made these last night, slight variation adding in some PB2. Really yummy, can’t wait to make it again, and again, and again!

  • Andi S.

    Do you have any recommendations for a flax seed replacement in the recipe? I am allergic to flax seed.

    • hmm, not sure

    • Coraline

      I use ground rolled oats instead of flax seed and it seems to work fine!

  • virginia

    i like protein power, but i don’t always have it at home. what could i replace it with? maybe soy flour? whole wheat flour? ground oats? of course the protein content would be lower, but what do you suggest?

    • almond flour!

      • Lily

        Can you stiil use regular flour. And what can I sub for flax seed. I don’t know wat flax seed is!

        • chantal

          Do you know what Google is?

      • Lauren

        All I have right now is vanilla soy protein powder. I know the other pancake recipes use whey because it makes them fluffier. Will soy do the same? I’m pretty doubtful…

  • Kat

    These are seriously good! I made 3 batches today for myself, DH and DD#2. I substituted powdered skim milk for the protein powder until I can buy some later this week. Think almond milk would impart a nice flavor, too, because I used skim milk. But still delicious!

  • Hello there, I discovered your blog by the use of Google even as searching for a related subject, your website came up, it seems to be great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  • I make these with PEA protein… all I do is mix pea protein with egg whites… BAM! Typically I will mix in a little pureed pumpkin too to thicken it all up, but seriously, you don’t even need the pumpkin!

    wat if i dont hav stevia?

    • Well if you must, regular sugar or splenda for taste. But try to go out and get some stevia.

  • Kim

    Do you think I could substitute eggs for olive oil? I am allergic to eggs.

    • No, but you can make a flax egg – look it up on google. It’s made out of flax seed and water.

  • Amber

    Just a quick question. Are they supposed to have a more pancaking consistancy or are they supposed to be a little squishy I guess.

  • Janine

    I think protein powders are no real food. Why do you eat it, anyway? Isn’t everything we need available from nature?

    • This is true. But when I want pancakes, I make them with protein powder instead of reg flour so I can cut down my refined carb intake and up my protein intake.

  • Elizabeth

    Umm so I just made these tonight for breakfast in the morning and I had to sneak a taste: SO GOOD! Oh my goodness, carb-y goodness is what I have been missing the most on this diet and I am SO excited to have pancakes! You are so awesome! :) Does not feel like I am on a diet…. ;)

  • AH, these are so good. IN LOVE WITH THEM.

  • these are so cute!! do you think i could sub peanut flour for the protein powder? about how much protein powder is in a scoop (1/4 cup? less?)

    • hmm each bag usually comes with their own scoop…whatever your “1 serving” is supposed to be.

  • I’ve been making pumpkin protein pancakes with a very similar recipe – so good!!

  • Laura

    How come they are so small? With what do you make them (sorry I don’t cook often)

  • Mary

    Omg these are so0o0o good!!

  • I just made these for dinner. They were harder to flip than the banana protein pancakes though.

  • Sarah

    Someone needs a nail trim…

  • Aja

    Those look so yummy. I guess I need to go grocery shopping!

  • I can’t wait to make these… tonight!

  • Noelle

    Try mixing some cinnamon into that cottage cheese!
