Butternut Squash Pancakes

photo 2I love butternut squash for so many reasons! It is packed with vitamin A, fiber, vitamin C (one cup contains half your daily recommendation), folate, and it is delicious! I also love the fact that it is super low in calories, so it is a volume food! MORE FOOD, yayy! It is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients, but not an absurd amount of calories, such a power food!

Luckily, it also works great in baked goods, just like pumpkin puree, bananas, and apple sauce! I found a recipe from http://www.bestfitbody.com to try out and I made a few adjustments. You can find the original recipe here.

I have made many different versions of this, but decided to give theirs a try today! I typically use a little more butternut squash which gives it a creamier moist flavor. These are nice and fluffy!

Ingredients:photo 1

  • 85 grams butternut squash
  • 3 tbsps egg whites
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsps oat bran
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (I used gnarly whey)
  • stevia to taste
  • toffee extract
  • vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsps water


  • Blend all ingredients together to a smooth texture
  • Use a non stick pan or griddle and heat it to a medium high heat before placing batter onto it
  • Place batter into circles or whatever shape you want! Wait until you see them begin to bubble on the top and until you can easily get a spatula underneath them and flip them!
  • Top them with whatever your heart desires! I used honey, greek yogurt, and a couple carob chips!
