Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Protein Pancakes

Good morning, everyone! Lately, I have been in the mood for pancakes. Fall has been slowly creeping into Arizona (finally!), and I have been all about pumpkin. Particularly, these pumpkin cinnamon swirl protein pancakes. I’ve been whipping up a batch of them pretty much after every workout.

When I took my first ever bite of these, I kid you not, my first thought was “These are the best pancakes I have ever had!” Yes, they were even better than the original buttermilk pancakes I grew up with as a child. I haven’t gotten around to adding chocolate chips to the batter, but when I get the chance, I know that it will make this recipe even better!

I’m a sucker for texture. These pancakes are moist and fluffy in all the right ways. To kick up the fall notch even higher, I top the pancakes with maple syrup and apple chunks. For that crunch factor, I have been adding cereal. It’s a flavor and texture party in my mouth!
