This is a bold statement, but these are one of the best pancake recipes I’ve made – Pumpkin Protein Pancakes!

People comment to me from time to time telling me what I can and cannot eat being diabetic.

And it drives me nuts.

I follow a woman on Instagram who is a Type 1 Diabetic coach for newly diagnosed and for parents of children recently diagnosed.

She met with a 13 year old client, and was asking her what sort of foods she liked to eat.

Fully expecting her answer to be pizza, burgers, fries, etc., the girl said “milk.”  At the age of 10 this girl went to a diabetes nutritionist who told her she should only drink milk if she had low glucose.

This girl loved milk but avoided it because of one comment a nutritionist made.

Type 1 diabetics can eat anything.  That’s good and bad.  Meaning I can just take more insulin and eat a second (or third!) slice of pizza.

So for the people who tell me I can’t eat pancakes because I am diabetic, move along.  And everyone go make these pancakes.

These pumpkin protein pancakes are so delish, easy AND packed with 24 grams of protein! While this is technically one serving, I ate 2 with a side of turkey sausage for a delicious breakfast.

Top Three Reasons I love FlavCity Protein Smoothies

  1. I’ve tried nearly every protein powder on the market, and FlavCity Protein Smoothies are the only ones that don’t make me sh!t my pants.  They contain undenatured whey protein powder, so because it’s minimally processed, I think that’s why I can tolerate it.
  2. The flavors are amazing.  My top picks are the vanilla, chocolate and pumpkin, but their seasonal flavors such as the mint and acai bowl are fabulous as well.
  3. The smoothies are a complete package – meaning you don’t need to add anything to it.  Simply add milk of choice, shake and you’ve got a delicious 25 gram protein smoothie with top quality ingredients.
  4. Okay – #4 is that I have a discount code!  Bizzy15 saves 15% off your order.  Click here to check out their products.
