  1. YUM! These look perfect! Making pumpkin anything automatically makes the food 10x better in my book 🙂 Love the simple ingredients too! Were they hard to flip? Sometimes making protein pancakes/healthier pancake recipes tend to be more difficult than flipping regular pancakes

  2. Why hello and happy 1st of October!
    These look epically Autumny, delicious and sounds so easy to make! Do you think I can make pumpkin puree out of a harlequin squash for this? Already made pumpkin puree over here is quite expensive, aaand I prefer making it from scratch, but not sure if this kind of pumpkin is as sweet. Know what? I’ve written down the recipe, and should probably just give it a bash and see what happens 😀 x J

  3. I just tried the recipe, my pancakes were sticking to pan. I had to maintain to small size to be able to flip it but half my batter/pureed mixture went bad as the pancakes were sticking to the pan. I used pam often even then. it was difficult. can you post video of you making them or flipping?

    • I’m sorry your pancakes were sticking. What kind of pan do you use? Also, what do you mean the batter went bad? .. Like in the batter waiting to be used? I have yet to venture into making videos, but it is on my list.. Hopefully I will be able to post a video soon.
