Pumpkin Protein Pancakes


This recipe, like many of the recipes I share with you, was a total experiment. I haven’t done the grain-free thing for very long, actually it’s a new thing I decided to start at the beginning of the year, and so far I’ve stuck to it like a champ. It turned out being pretty easy for me to make the switch (I was gluten-free before) and I haven’t really missed them at all…but the other morning I woke up with pancakes on my mind. Nice, moist, fluffy pancakes. I decided to take on the challenge, so with the few simple ingredients I had on hand, the amazing “Pumpkin Protein Pancakes” were born… these are incredibly moist, fluffy, and soooo delicious!!! You’d never tell that these are gluten and grain free, paleo approved, dairy free, and sugar free too!!

I feel completely cleansed inside and out. Apart from loosing 5-6 lbs, (and the obvious things herbal cleanses do that I won’t mention here), my skin is glowing, my tummy feels much more at ease and overall my energy has increased.
