I remember first reading about protein pancakes when I was still in high school, on one of the SELF forums. I think 4 or 5 years is long enough to wait to try a recipe, don't you? I colored it with pumpkin, my flavor of the week (that song is going to be in my head all day now!). I wanted to add vanilla extract to the mix, but I couldn't get the bottle open... how sad is that?! I'm definitely making this again; I can't wait to experiment with different ingredients.
1/3 cup oats
2 egg whites
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup pumpkin, most mixed in but some reserved for spreading on top
maple syrup for dipping
1/2 tsp PB, spread on top
Oh! Can't forget my sweet snackies from last night! I had one small chocolate rice pumpkin (like a mini crunch bar) while I waited for Jalene to come home, then we made sundaes: 1/2 chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookie, Edy's ice cream, dark chocolate sauce. Mm-mm good!
