Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Pancakes

A protein-packed recipe for the fluffiest pumpkin pancakes you’ll ever taste.
This is a quick and easy fall-inspired recipe made with spices, Greek yogurt, flour, sugar, maple syrup and pumpkin.

Pumpkin Pancakes

During the fall season, I constantly crave everything pumpkin flavored. Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin overnight oats, and pumpkin pancakes.

I was sad to find out that one my favorites had already discontinued their offering of pumpkin pancakes, so I decided to whip up a batch this weekend.

Greek yogurt pumpkin panckes

Filled with fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin spice, maple syrup, and greek yogurt, these pumpkin pancakes are a healthy option for you to enjoy one weekend morning. The greek yogurt replaces the butter and the oil in your traditional pancake recipe.

These pancakes are perfect to serve the morning after Thanksgiving  using leftover pumpkin pie filling from the previous night’s dessert.

My favorite kefir is the Lifeway Kefir.

Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

One of my friends reached out to me asking me for easy and healthy breakfast ideas that she could have during the work week that can be taken on the go. So I suggested she try overnight oats in a mason jar, because they are so simple and healthy. Overnight oats can be made the night before and taken on the go the next morning.

 

Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Using leftover canned pumpkin, I decided to test out a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats myself. This fiber rich recipe is full of fall flavors and packed with protein. This Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats recipe uses rolled oats, kefir, lactose-free or a dairy alternative milk, cinnamon,pumpkin spice, canned pumpkin, maple syrup, a dash of salt, vanilla extract, protein powder and walnuts as a topping. Oatmeal is one of my favorite fall and winter breakfast dishes but the pumpkin gives it a new flavor punch. 

 

You add all of these ingredients to your mason jars, stir them together, seal them with a lid and let them sit overnight in the refrigerator. These Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats can be eaten cold or heated in the microwave for 1 minute. Topped with nuts and maple syrup. Enjoy!

Mini Egg White Frittatas

 A friend of mine recently asked me for quick and easy breakfast ideas that were high in protein. So I suggested my go-to breakfast that I make when I have a busy week and can’t cook in the morning. In advance, I make a big batch of Mini Egg White Frittatas. Using all of my favorite omelette ingredients I just whip them up and bake them a muffin tin in the oven for a few minutes. When I’m ready to eat them throughout the week, I just pop them in the microwave to reheat them. So quick and easy and low calorie!
