{pumpkin protein pancakes}


Hello October! So happy to meet you again. I think I say this every season change, but I’m really feelin Fall right now. Today even feels like Fall 🍂 What better way to kick off the first day of October, than with Pumpkin Protein Pancakes?

I snapped this photo in a downtown park in Portland yesterday. We hit Oregon at the most perfect timing to see all the colors of fall. I can’t get enough of this color palette right now.

About the recipe…..

I don’t do pumpkin spiced anything. Especially the ever so trendy lattes. But I do like some pumpkin in my life. The real stuff though. I kept seeing recipes pop up for pumpkin pancakes so I decided to put my own little spin on them. Not too pumpkiny. Not too sweet. Just how I like it. Technically you can sweeten them up as much as you’d like with all the toppings.

I should probably state that I have never, in my life made a pretty pancake lol. How do peeps get them so perfect? What’s the trick?

But what I can promise, is that these pancakes are delicious. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Ha.

And I’m trying to find ways to use up all my Vital Proteins Collagen powder. (I’m not a fan). Picked up the new one Trader Joe’s has on the shelves and I’m excited to give it a go. Fingers crossed it’s actually “tasteless”

Let me know if you give this recipe a whirl. Makes my day when I get the tag, message or text saying you tried out an xoxostacyb recipe 🧡

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 scoop collagen powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (any milk will do the trick)


  • slivered almonds
  • dark chocolate, chopped
  • maple syrup

Here’s what you’ll do:

To your blender add all ingredients (except toppings)

Puree until smooth.

Heat a large pan to medium heat.  Add a little butter or coconut oil.  Pour 1/4 cup batter.  Using the back of a spoon smooth out the top.  Sprinkle the top with some dark chocolate pieces.

Once bubbles begin to form (about 3 minutes) Flip pancakes and cook for 3 more minutes.  They take a little longer than regular pancakes since they are so dense.

Drizzle with maple syrup and top with almonds.  If you have any leftover chocolate…sprinkle that too!



Have a great Monday friends. After an amazing long weekend in Oregon, we flew home in the middle of the night and I was able to see Bay off to school this morning. So if you’re looking for me, I’ll be hibernating the day away!
