Healthy Snacks Recipes: Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
As we all know, in order to speed metabolism and burn calories all day long, you have to eat every few hours.
Well, how the heck do we find the time to cook 5-6 meals every day?
You don’t! You pre-make all your snacks and make extras of your meals so that you are stacked with great options for the whole day in no extra time than you normally take to cook.
This is why I am always working hard to find you great healthy recipes. And today I have a great healthy snack for you. Its a healthy recipes makeover. I found this one from an awesome girl called Katie from Dashing Dish, and I tweaked it and made it even better than it already is.
Make a bunch of these at once and store them in your fridge for a great on the go snack or even a great healthy snack at home with a delicious warm cup of coffee! Yum! I also love the have my Chunky Monkey Protein Muffins. My kids love these, I make them almost every week. You will not even believe they are so healthy when you try them, but they are 100% healthy and gluten-free.
My kids love these. Sometimes they have them for breakfast and sometimes for snack.
By the way I wrote a great blog post that everyone had been asking me for on HEALTHY STORE BOUGHT SNACKS FOR KIDS. You will read all about the snacks I choose for my kids and why.
And if you feel like you can’t figure out what to eat to help you lose weight… you’re tired of the same bland and boring “diet food” and you would love to find a way to eat that you can lose weight but that your entire family could eat the same meals so that it’s not so much work, click here… because I have a 30 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan that will do JUST THAT!
Healthy Snack Recipes: Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup gluten- free oats
- 1/2 cup + 2tbs water
- 2 packets stevia
- Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!
- Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray (coconut oil spray if you can) over medium heat.
- Use an ice cream scooper to scoop the batter into griddle or skillet to make the same size pancakes.
- When the pancakes start to bubble, flip them over and cook until done. The seconds side cooks much faster.
Everyone always asks me what oatmeal I use, Bobs Red Mill gluten-free oats is what I use.
This is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Oats
Listen, I know that it’s super hard to eat healthy on a consistent basis and that most of the time you don’t even know what to eat nor feel like you have the time to make healthy meals every day. And truthfully, thats the only way you will lose weight and reach your goals. Its all about the eating. But most people don’t even know what the right foods to eat are.
If this is you, if you want to lose weight and you are frustrated because you feel like you’ve tried so many different ways, and nothing works. Maybe you need a meal plan that is more of a lifestyle and not so much of a diet that deprives you of calories and ends up leaving you bingeing after a few weeks and miserable because you are hungry all the time and not enjoying the “diet food”.
My meal plans are the total opposite of that.
The cool thing is that the meals are actually insanely delicious and extremely effective at burning fat.
The ladies on my FIT MOM FOR LIFE PROGRAM do amazing.
They lose about 2-6 lbs a week and they never feel deprived. Its truly a way of life, because if you can’t stick to it on a consistent basis,then you really can’t get results.
I hope you enjoy this yummy pumpkin recipe.
I love allllll things pumpkin! 🙂
