Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

I love a good fall recipe. The spices, the pumpkin, all ooey gooey and warm together. Well in our house we love protein pancakes. They have no flour, are low in fat, but full of protein. They are delicious. Well today I decided to make a pumpkin version of these bad boys, and they did not disapoint. Get in the fall mood, and start your morning off right with these delicious fall spiced pancakes. 

1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup oatmeal
8 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp all spice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon 
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

Directions: In your blender, fluff your egg whites until frothy. Add all of your other ingredients and blend until smooth.  Cook on medium heat until golden on each side. For best results, pulse blender each time before you poor more batter onto your griddle. 

These have a nice warm spice, and classic fall flavors. The fact that its a great way to start your day off in a healthy way, full of protein that will keep your family full, is just an added bonus. Enjoy!
