Baked Pumpkin Protein Pancakes


  • 1 cup (240g) unsweetened almond milk

  • ⅓ cup (81g) packed pure pumpkin puree

  • 2 tablespoons (27g) melted coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons (15g) packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (white or apple cider)

  • 1 cup (125g) flour

  • 1 scoop (36g) Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Plant vanilla protein powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish by spraying well with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Mix together the wet ingredients (almond milk, pumpkin, coconut oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and vinegar) in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.

  3. In a smaller bowl stir together the flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix with a fork, making sure to break up any clumps of protein powder.

  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring with a fork or spatula until combined. The batter will be thick and lumpy, do not overmix.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Spread evenly with a spatula into a thin, even layer.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center just comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

  7. Slice into 8 squares. Enjoy with your favorite pancake toppings such as maple syrup, nut butter, or fruit (macros not included.)
