3 High Protein Pumpkin Recipes

by Tom Venuto
I’m going to do my duty today to help you avoid the candy dish and other Halloween temptations by giving you 3 delicious healthy alternatives, suitable for the season. Best part: they’re all high in protein too, so they fit perfectly into the  burn the fat body transformation program lifestyle!
Which one will you try first: the pumpkin pancakes (pumpcakes), pumpkin protein smoothie, or the pumpkin spice oatmeal?
Tom Venuto’s “pumpcakes” (pumpkin pancakes)

7.5 oz (212 g) of canned pumpkin
1/3 cup (27 g) oatmeal dry
1/3 cup (40 g) multigrain or whole wheat pancake mix
1 scoop (26 g) vanilla (or plain) protein powder
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
non/low calorie sweetener: Optional (try stevia if you prefer to avoid artificial sweeteners)
Yield: makes 2 large (5 inch wide) pancakes
