For my non-vegan pumpkin protein pancakes (amped up using cottage cheese), click here. These pancakes are for my vegan friends who need a much-needed protein punch, as I always do. My banana protein pancakes were pretty darn popular (well, with me anyway, don't know about you guys!) and I adapted the recipe slightly to incorporate one of the blog world's favourite ingredients - pumpkin. Who cares if it's nearly spring? Pumpkin is appropriate year-round in the blog world. It's low in calories, high in vitamin A, and just a killer food to pack all kinds of nutrients into your day. Great way to start the day off right, plus - well, yeah, it's pretty darn delicious.
