Mix the SANE Clean Whey Protein, vanilla extract, xylitol, almond flour, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice mix in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the beaten eggs, fat-free or low-fat cottage cheese and pumpkin purée until blended.
Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease skillet with butter or melted coconut oil.
Using about 1/4 cup per pancake, drop batter onto the skillet. When bubbles begin to form in the middle of the pancakes, turn and cook another 2 minutes or until firm.
Repeat, keeping pancakes warm in the oven before serving.
NOTE: Be sure to use canned pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie mix (which has added sugar), to make these pancakes.
TIP: Serve with almond butter or a purée of xylitol.
