Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes

As much as I HATE to admit that the summer is officially over, one of the things I'm most looking forward to about the Fall is allllllll of the warm, delicious & spicy fall FLAVOURS. From cinnamon, to apple pie, to pumpkin spice - I just want it all.

Speaking of pumpkin spice... I am such a sucker for anything pumpkin-flavoured!  Whenever Thanksgiving weekend rolls around, I tend to treat pumpkin spice like they do in those Frank’s Red hot sauce commercials (you know the ones!) - and I just put that sh*t on errrrthang. That's why, today, I whipped up a Fall-inspired version of my FAVE protein pancakes recipe to really get me in the mood.

Behold - these deliciously-fluffy PUMPKIN SPICE protein pancakes!! It tastes just like you’re eating dessert for breakfast, but it's got 30 grams of protein -  and absolutely NO guilt whatsoever. (Not that anyone should ever feel guilty for eating pumpkin pie for breakfast! Girl, you do you.)
