These high protein Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes are a great way to start your day whether you have time to relax or are on-the-go. They are filling, satisfying and super versatile. Whip up a batch in under 20 minutes and enjoy!
It’s that time of year when we really start leaning into the pumpkin recipes! Pumpkin flavours are everywhere: lattes, pies, muffins and now breakfast!
The only downside of cooking or baking with pumpkin puree is that a recipe never calls for a full can of it. There always seems to be leftover pumpkin puree that you store in your fridge for 2 years (true story) or throw out before you have the chance to use it again.
Although this pancake recipe doesn’t require a full can of puree, you can make these on repeat throughout the week and use it all up! Alternatively, if you have any leftover pumpkin from another recipe, use it here. You won’t be disappointed!
For this recipe, you will need:
Protein is one of the macronutrients that our body needs to help maintain many important functions in our body. It also keeps us full and satisfied after a meal, because it takes longer to digest than other nutrients. In these Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes, there is a significant amount of protein to start your day off on the right note!
If you make the recipe as listed, it provides over 23 grams of protein! That’s not even taking into account any Greek yogurt you may top them with. The protein comes from the egg, cottage cheese and oat flour!
I love to finish these pancakes with a dollop of Greek yogurt for an extra boost in protein. Then a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon really rounds off the flavours and takes the coziness to the next level. You could also spread some butter on top, if you prefer, for a creamy mouthfeel.
If you’re looking for a source of fruit, I recommend adding some slices of banana either directly in the batter prior to cooking or on top as they are being served.
However you decide to dress these Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes, I’m confident they will leave you full and happy!
I hope these Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes keep you satisfied throughout the morning. Don’t forget to check out some of these other oat-based breakfast recipes:
