10-Minute Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

When you woke up this morning, you probably didn’t think, ‘What I really need today are pumpkin pancakes.’ Or maybe you did, if you are a genius. Because it turns out that pumpkin puree, buckwheat flour and vanilla protein powder make a super smart breakfast. Plus, this recipe is vegan, soy-free and low-sodium, unlike some store-bought pancake mixes.

This fluffy pancake recipe is fast, easy, and made for one. Yes, that’s right, a solo breakfast in peace—it’s just what the doctor ordered. Plus, it requires very little cleanup and is nourishing and healthy. Packing in that fiber and protein in your first meal will make you feel like you’ve done something by noon, even if all you’ve done is eat pancakes on the couch.

You’ll fall (pun intended) in love with not only the taste, texture and smell, but also the low fat and sugar content, making this a healthy anytime treat that feels like a decadent sweet.
