Pumpkin has a way of turning perfectly level-headed human beings into bona fide buffoons – the kind of people you do NOT want to sit next to on an airplane or be stuck having to talk to at a party. This is particularly common at this time of the year, when all things pumpkin suddenly materialize around us and we’re left scratching our heads wondering how in the world some people can function with a pumpkin-head in place of their cranium.
You see, I made these pancakes without thinking properly. I had, in other words, a pumpkin for a head as I made them. I just didn’t think. I did things I otherwise would never have done (like add as much pumpkin as I did.)And it wasn’t just the batter that was zany. My approach to it was too. Instead of making round pancakes, I just let the batter ‘do its thing’ and then, to add weirdness to weirdness, I added coconut oil to the pan both before and as the pancakes cooked.
The thing that brought the whole thing home for me though (and made me wake up from my pumpkin-induced stupor) was the fact that I ended up creating what may just be some of the best Pumpkin Protein Pancakes on EARTH.
I tell ya, it’s a weird time of the year… but one that we can marvel in! Check this out:
Oh oh oh before I forget: I just added some new codes to the NEWS section of the Protein Pow App! Make sure you use those if you’re low on protein powder or any related ingredients. Here’s the link to the App if you don’t already have it.
Below you’ll find the pancake recipe. I’ve made an effort to give you as MUCH detail as possible in the directions so that you don’t end up confused and throw in the towel on the whole thing thinking you’re following a recipe created by a bozo. Have faith in the directions and trust me on this, OK? Ignore the pumpkin head if you must.
