Pumpkin Spice Pancakes Recipe (with Protein!)

By Dr. Josh Axe

September 15, 2022

Ready for a serious breakfast and one that puts the protein in pancakes? Pumpkin spice pancakes are tasty all year, but when Fall rolls around, these are an absolute must-try.

With a list of clean ingredients that includes applesauce, eggs, coconut oil, coconut flour and Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice, there’s zero guilt in indulging in these pumpkin pancakes. That’s because they’re filled with performance fats, protein and fiber. (In fact, with only 10 net carbs per serving, they qualify as keto as long as you skip the maple syrup!)

Also a gluten-free pumpkin spice pancake recipe, these have a whopping 36 grams of protein and 36 grams of fat per serving alongside just 16 grams of carbs. They will power you through your day!

Health-Focused Ingredients

Wondering how you can enjoy pumpkin spice pancakes while sticking to your healthy diet? It’s all about the ingredients you choose. Here’s a breakdown of the nutrient-filled ingredients in this pumpkin protein pancakes recipe:

  • Bone Broth Protein: Our Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice is a nourishing, collagen-based powder with traditional Fall spices. It works to satisfy your sweet tooth, while helping to support your gut, skin, nails and joints.

  • Coconut Oil: The coconut oil in these pumpkin spice pancakes will keep them moist, while providing important, performance fats like lauric acid and caprylic acid.

  • Almond and Coconut Flours: These flours are excellent choices for gluten-free eaters, plus it provides protein, fiber and iron.

  • Applesauce: Applesauce also adds moisture to these pumpkin pancakes, and it provides fiber and antioxidants.

  • Eggs: The eggs in this recipe serve as a binder, keeping the pancakes together, but they are also an excellent source of protein and micronutrients like selenium, riboflavin and vitamin B12.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil over low heat. Next, in a medium bowl, whisk the melted oil with applesauce, eggs and almond milk together.

Stir in coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda, the pumpkin protein powder and sea salt. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Heat griddle to medium heat, with a little coconut oil brushed on so the pancakes don't stick. Drop batter onto griddle and fry until bubbles form on one side. Flip and finish cooking.

Top with optional maple syrup (or go with a sugar-free monk fruit maple syrup), fresh fruit and cinnamon.
