Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes

Today was great for 3 reasons:

1. It was an absolutely gorgeous autumn day!! I spent 23 miles biking the fall country side. Ahhh…. sigh.

2. It is the start of my birthday week. I do love birthdays… and not just mine.

3. After sleeping in, I made pumpkin pie protein pancakes.

The perfect pre-bike ride breakfast on a perfect fall day.

I used the same mix that I used to make the Almond Meal Pancakes.  This time I only used the mix and didn’t add any other flour. Add in a little pumpkin to the mixture, pumpkin pie spice,  and a scoop of vanilla protein powder… voila!!!!

All mixed up!!

All mixed up!!

And sometimes I am still half asleep- almost forgot the protein!

Easy, quick, fall, pumpkin goodness on my plate.

I am finally mastering the cast iron griddle too- far less burning and much more golden brown awesome-ness!

I even added some chocolate to my last one- also tasty, but there is only so much sweet I can handle at a time.

I topped these pumpkin bites with real maple syrup and a mix of jumbo raisins.  Raisins are an excellent pre-workout food and since I knew I had a medium sized bike ride in my future, I added those into the mix.

I really wish I had a picture of my bike today, but I left my phone in the car and just rode. Sometimes silence away from technology is golden.
