pumpkinAre you all pumpkin-ed out yet? Although Halloween has passed, with Thanksgiving right around the corner pumpkin-flavored everything is in full swing. But that pumpkin-spiced latte is going to cost you more than a pretty penny at the local cafe. So if you need a pumpkin fix, steer clear of those whipped cream (and calorie) laden beverages and try some of these recipes at home instead!
Pumpkin Pie Pancakes  
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup dry oats
  • 1/8 cup vanilla almond milk (unsweetened = lower sugar)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (from can)
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 

Mix the egg whites and oats in a food processor until they form a paste. Then add the almond milk, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice, and cinnamon and mix again. Pour the mixture into a heated Teflon pan and cook until golden brown on each side. Add toppings to your liking – walnuts, banana, greek yogurt*…
