Get ready for pumpkin season with Cinnamon Pumpkin Protein Pancakes!

Soooo I am totally obsessed with pumpkin and although it’s not officially fall I thought I would let you enjoy this delicious recipe a little early! 🙂

Pumpkin is an incredible ingredient not only because it is delicious, but it is also packed with fiber, vitamin A, and potassium. Plus these muffins are high in protein as well as fiber to keep you full sans eating a ton of calories! These muffins work perfect as a quick breakfast or a sweet snack. Enjoy!
