Best High Protein Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

You’re going to love the recipe below – it’s a guilt-free way to enjoy my kryptonite – pancakes. But before we dive into the recipe, I have to jump up on a soapbox for a moment… 

Ask yourself, this question (and answer it honestly!) 

How hard are you really pushing yourself while you workout?

Do you workout enthusiastically, feeling the burn with a smile, pushing yourself to the limit? Or would you describe your exercise time more like an even trot? Coasting along, breaking a respectable sweat, doing the same old thing. 

Since you take the time to exercise and desire to have your body change into a slimmer, more toned version of yourself, then use the following tips to get more out of your exercise time. 

Focus Your Mental Energy

It sounds simple, but often isn’t. If you’re lifting weights, focus on that specific muscle group. Researchers saw a significant increase in muscle activity when people focused on what they were doing, compared to thinking about unrelated topics. 

Have an Audience

Researchers saw a significant increase in strength and endurance in people who had an audience, compared to those training on their own. 

Get a Caffeine Boost

Caffeine has been shown to help burn fat and increase your endurance. The most effective amount seems to be around 300mg one hour prior to working out. Of course, check with your doctor first. 

Pump Up The Volume

Listen to upbeat music while you exercise. Researchers found that personal music motivated weightlifters to complete two more repetitions on average than those who were not listening to music.

Keep Things Fresh

Alter your routine often. This will help you to avoid plateaus and will continue to challenge your body. Try new exercises, new intensities, and new environments. 

Stay Nourished and Hydrated

Pay attention to your food and your hydration levels. You’d be amazed at how much being dehydrated can affect your performance even away from the gym.

Find Your Magic Time

Work out when your body is at its best. If you’re not a morning person, do not force the issue on your body. 

Wear Clothes That You Love

Not only will you be happy to put them on and show them off, but you will be able to focus completely on the task at hand, rather than stressing that your pants will split whenever you squat. 

Make Sure The Shoe Fits

Can you imagine a tap dancer performing without tap shoes? Your shoes are just as important! With correctly fitted shoes for your workout or sport, you’ll keep your feet, ankles, knees, and back protected and healthy. 

Use a Professional

If you don’t already, have me design your workouts. This will ensure that you’re being challenged and seeing results.

As Promised, here is my famous High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe:

high-protein-pumpkin-pancakes2.jpg

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese or greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup dry oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBL melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Blend all ingredients in a blender until well mixed.  If the batter is not thin enough, add a touch of water or almond milk to get it the consistency of pancake batter.  Pour onto the griddle.  Make sure you cook these long enough that the center gets mostly cooked.  Top with real maple syrup.
