My second meal is normally a protein pancake but wanted something a little different. Not sure what to call it...Pumpkin Spice Squash Patty with a Cinnamon Vanilla Protein Pancake..."Double Stuffed Squash Oreo?" 😂 maybe that's a stretch.
1. Patties: process 1/2c cooked spaghetti squash, 1/4c oats, 1T of maple syrup, some pecans (add more nuts if you want more of a granola bar-like patty), pumpkin spice and cardamom (optional). Place on baking sheet and cook 350 for about 35 minutes. For crisp patty, you can cook on a skillet afterward for a few minutes (maybe top with a fried egg or just peanut butter or jam 😉).
2. Pancake: 1/2 scoop AM Vanilla with 1/2c cottage cheese, cinnamon, 1/4t baking powder and 1/8t of xanthan gum.
3. Creamy center was just some AM Vanilla protein powder, one packet of stevia, cottage cheese and cinnamon blended. [once the mixture settles or you refrigerate it, it stiffens up more like an Oreo center - I just couldn't wait 😂].
So yummy paired with pecans and maple syrup! Great snack with a homemade frothy chai tea latte (brewed chai tea and milk blended with some xanthan gum, topped with cocoa powder 👌
