Single Serve Pumpkin Protein Pancakes | No Protein Powder Needed

Single Serve Pumpkin Protein Pancakes | No Protein Powder Needed

This has been my go to breakfast for a while now and it hits the spot everytime.


  • 22 grams cup rolled oats (1/4 cup)
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp flax seeds (2 grams)
  • 30 grams pumpkin puree (1/8 cup)
  • 57 grams cottage cheese (1/4 cup)
  • 1 egg white or 3 tablespoons (46 grams) liquid egg whites or 1 egg or 3 tablespoons egg substitute*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat griddle to medium heat
  2. Place all ingredients into a container and blend. I use an immersion blender, but you can use a magic bullet or any blender that has a smaller container attachment. If too thick add water a teaspoon at a time.
  3. Cook pancakes slowly. About 3-4 minutes per side. Watch carefully, these can burn easily.
  4. Enjoy with the topping of your choice!

Tip: I love to blend this ahead of time, making breakfast quick and easy the next morning. You can also double or triple this recipe to make more pancakes.

*Using 1 egg will make the pancakes thicker, egg whites make thinner pancakes – I love them both ways, you do you.

Macro Count (using 3 tablespoon liquid egg whites):

This will vary depending on the type of cottage cheese (I used 2%) you use as well as the type of eggs you choose.
