1 serving SERVINGS


  • 1/3 cup (40 grams) vanilla, cinnamon, or maple protein powder
  • 1/4 cup baked, mashed (or pureed) sweet potato or pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt or cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 to 4-plus tablespoons water


    • Throw everything into a blender or food processor until well blended.
    • Heat a pancake griddle to medium heat, and make sure it's ready by dripping a little water on it to see if it sizzles.
    • Spray the griddle with cooking spray, and scoop pancakes on the pan 2 tablespoons at a time (I just use a 1/4 measuring cup and pour half of it out.) If the griddle is the right temperature, about 30 seconds per side should be about right, but watch closely!
    • Serve hot, with some berry compote (just heat up 1/4 cup frozen berries), a little light agave syrup (my suggestion would be a good calorie-reduced version), or a bit of light aerosol whipped cream.
