Do you ever wake up on a weekend morning and just want a good solid breakfast? Something you don’t have time for during the week? I sure do!! and so i decided to make pancakes. BUT i truly believe in the power of Shakeology when you drink it every day (i skipped it for two weeks in April and got a cold… never doing that again!) so I didn’t want to skip my shake. The solution? Use shakeology in the pancakes! And then i wanted pumpkin pancakes as well so, well, i decided to combine the two. Surely someone had thought of this before, right? Right?! I couldn’t find ANY good vegan recipes for pumpkin chocolate shakeology pancakes! i know. craziness. So i decided to make my own recipe up. So i tried two different recipes- one for a single serving of pancakes when you’re cooking for one (that can easily be multiplied for larger groups) and one for a batch of pancakes to feed you and your family (well… depending on how big your fam is!). So here are my two recipes- i liked the second one better because i put more cinnamon in there but they were both delicious and i’d make both again!
3 T Flour (I used oat flour)
2 T Vegan Chocolate Shakeology
1/4 C Canned Pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t cinnamon
1/3 C Soy Milk (or nut milk of choice)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon until well combined.
1 C Flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t sea salt
1 t pumpkin pie spice
1 t cinnamon
1 Banana (ripe)
1 C Soy Milk (or nut milk of choice)
1/2 C Canned Pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 T Maple Syrup
- Mix all Dry ingredients in a bowl with a spoon until well combined.
- Mix wet ingredients (banana, soy milk, pumpkin, maple syrup) in a blender (you can mix by hand but i’m lazy)
- Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until all the dry ingredients are wet
Both recipes the cooking of the pancakes is the same:
- heat a griddle until it’s warm on medium heat. While the griddle is warming you can clean up all your ingredients/do your dishes and let the batter sit.
- Lightly spray the pan with oil or use a non-stick pan.
- Pour pancake batter onto the warmed griddle.
- Heat the pancakes until you see the edges starting to brown- they will be a little thick so they won’t get bubbly like regular pancakes
- Flip and heat the other side keeping a close eye on them so they don’t burn!
- Top with maple syrup, pumpkin spice peanut butter, fresh berries, or your favorite toppings and enjoy!
