Method

  • Mix all dry ingredients (ground almonds, coconut flour, protein powder, cinnamon, mixed spice, bicarbonate of soda and salt) in a mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, egg whites and vanilla extract.
  • Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium to high heat. Lightly grease the pan with coconut oil and cook about 1 heaped tablespoon pancake batter at a time, slightly pressing down with the back of spoon to get a pancake size and shape. Cook for about 3 minutes, then carefully flip and cook on the other side for another 2 minutes or so.
  • Serve warm, drizzled with honey or your favourite liquid sweetener and sprinkled with pumpkin seeds and desiccated coconut, if you wish.
