don't be fooled, i am not that great of a chef

so today was college day at school, and after attending 3 short presentations about our future life, Hannah, Meg and i decided we wanted pancakes. late last night as i was stalking fitness pro's i came across a new pumpkin protein pancake recipe! they looked somewhat appealing so i decided to try them out. also, to give fall a warm welcome, pumpkin was a must.

ours were definitely really runny {the batter} and required PAM spray on the pan quite frequently. but people were requesting the recipie, so i decided to post it! even though when i say "really not that great of a chef" i mean it.... {gotta pick up my game though for when i am a wife. and a mom}

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

1 cup pure pumpkin
1 1/2 - 2 cups of Whey vanilla protein powder {AKA: my favorite thing}
2 eggs with yolk
2 eggs NO yolk {only whites}
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
*dash of cinnamon* {i just kept dumping.... haha i love cinnamon}
---i also added 1 Tbsp of sugar, the original recipe didn't call for it.

mix, cook, enjoy! we topped ours with more cinnamon, and i even added peanut butter to mine! which was pretty dang good. since i love peanut butter. these have also kept me full for pretty much the entire day. so that's always a plus!

rainy days, pumpkin pancakes, and good friends. it's been a good Tuesday
