There’s nothing better than a stack of pumpkin pancakes on a cozy fall morning! Wake up to this extra fluffy and protein packed stacked that is spiced to perfection with pumpkin and pumpkin spice.


  • 1 cup white whole-wheat or whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 NOW® Sports Pumpkin Seed Protein
  • 1 tbsp. ground flax seed*
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup unsweetened oat or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional)


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
  2. In another larger bowl whisk together the egg, pumpkin puree, milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Fold in white chocolate chips if desired.
  4. Grease a skillet or a griddle with butter or coconut oil. Use a 1/4 cup to portion out the batter. Once the edges start to bubble, flip the pancake and repeat with remaining batter.
