High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes and Vanilla Frosting Recipe

High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes and Vanilla Frosting Recipe

Pancakes are a unique breakfast food in the sense that they’re on the sweeter side but can also be savory and very filling. These pumpkin pancakes and vanilla frosting certainly fit that bill with 55 grams of protein. If you struggle with hunger after breakfast or meals, that won’t be the case here.

For context, I consume around 3,000-3,500 calories most days and these are a chore to finish in one sitting. You may consider cutting the recipe in half or planning on eating in two separate meals as prepared.

Before you get to the recipe, I just wanted to drop a note about the protein used. I always recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey or Dymatize Elite XT (a blend of proteins).
