Low Carb Pumpkin Pancakes

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup whey protein powder
  • 1 Tablespoon butter - softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 packets Splenda or equivalent

This recipe has about 14 net carbs per serving. We recommend making the pancakes smaller than usual. Use a little less than 1/4 cup batter per pancake. Since there's no flour in the recipe, the pancakes are very tender. If you make them too large, they might break apart when you flip them or transfer them from pan to the plate. The pancakes aren't as sweet as their full carb brothers so make sure you have a good sugar-free syrup to serve them with.

How To Make Low Carb Pumpkin Pancakes

In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg. Blend in pumpkin, butter, vanilla and sour cream.

In a separate bowl, sift together all dry ingredients.

Combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix well.

On a lightly greased skillet or fry pan, dollop out about 1/4 cup of batter to make each pancake.

This makes about 6 pancakes.

A flour-less pumpkin pancake recipe that uses protein powder and flax meal. Best served with fresh fruit and sugar-free maple syrup.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank AlwaysDieting for this recipe.

Try using agave instead of sugar to take advantage of it's low glycemic index and substitute WW flour if you don't have any whey protein in your pantry!

Thank you Mr Breakfast for this, I made it for my grandkids when they came over. Sophie doesn't like pumpkin, but even she ate this up. I'm helping my daughter introduce her kids to healthy foods and I'm glad to say that James and Isabella are onto pumpkin.
Even I had to have a try of this. I have to admit it wasn't as full of flavour as the less healthy variety, but I suppose we have to compromise! Don't we?

Reading back, this actually has quite a lot of fat, I don't know why it's in this section, but at least it had vegetables! Right?

I'll be trying some green bean recipe next, I hope. Probably not on pancakes though. That would be a yucky mess! Aren't I right?

I've made a couple of things since my pumpkin pancakes and will be reviewing. I'll have to keep coming on Mr Breakfast, won't I! It's a right food fiesta! Isn't it?

Thanks again

Very sweet and delicious. I forgot to add the flax seed, but it still turned out great. My whole family enjoyed them.

I found this recipe to taste very delicious. I would reccomend a fruit topping - I tried it with strawberries and thought it was fantastic.

Hello, I lost my favorite recipe for pumpkin pancakes and just found this one. I needed a use for some pumpkin after I used 1 cup in pumpkin chili and was delighted with the pancake recipe, but it got misplaced. I am so pleased with this one. They turn out good enough... no topping is needed. Thanks.

I love this recipe! I've sub'd Oats and Vanilla flavored Soy Protein for the Whey Protein Powder. Both were very good. Can use yogurt in place of Sour Cream. If using canned pumpkin make sure it's Pumpkin only. I almost bought the processed pumpkin mix by accident, defeating the whole idea of healthy.

Made these last night with a few substitutions, winter squash instead of pumpkin and vanilla flavored soy protien (left out vanilla extract). Pretty darned good! I put some ricotta flavored with vanilla and splenda on them and that was pretty tasty. I''m also thinking about a savory pancake using some of these pancake receipes since I tend to veer more towards savory than sweet. Maybe use them for sandwiches?? Could be interesting with some shaved ham, smoked turkey and cheese?? Grilled in the toaster oven....yum!

Interesting concept - we tried the recipe without the sour cream, using skim milk instead. Very flavorful - didn't need condiments at all! A fall classic!
