Wonderful Fall Food

I recently came across a low carb pumpkin pancake recipe on one of my friend's blogs (Donna). I was wanting something different for breakfast since I eat LC and need a change once in a while. They were fantastic! I made a few changes (like adding baking powder) so here is my version:

Pumpkin Pancakes

Great with SF caramel sauce, a little syrup & whipped cream! :)

2 T tablespoons pureed pumpkin
¼ c. Egg Beaters, or 1 egg
1.5 tablespoon cream cheese
3 packets Splenda (I now use Turvia or Stevia... I just used 1/2 pkg Truvia
cinnamon (to taste)
nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
⅓ cup egg whites
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
¾ teaspoon baking powder

I have no photos, since I ate mine right away, but my daughter, Julie, came in as we were eating and she took a few so maybe we will get those posted soon. I had a large box of Jimmy Dean Turkey sausage from Costco (great BTW) and we had those with the pancakes and it made a great fall breakfast! With the protein powder it will keep you full for a LONG time! :) Enjoy! I had to have them for breakfast after writing this so here is the photos!
