Pumpkin Roll

With the first hint of Fall in the air, we are bombarded with pumpkin flavored everything…milkshakes, donuts, cakes, coffee, breads, candy, and rolls. Ah the pumpkin roll. Love the pumpkin roll. Don’t love the calories that come with it. 1/10 of a pumpkin roll will set you back 370 calories. I don’t know about you, but one little slice of roll just ain’t gonna cut it for me. So this week I was on a mission to create a healthier, nutrient dense, filling, and tasty version of this Fall favorite. I’ll admit, some of my attempts at creating healthier versions (of whatever) end with a big FAIL, but not this one!  I asked Jesse to take a bite of this pumpkin roll the first time I made it, and the next thing I knew he had inhaled the entire thing!  But he can do that. And so can you. It is only 280 calories. SCORE.

PUMPKIN ROLL
1/3 cup Kodiak® pancake mix
1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup plain canned pumpkin
2 Tbsp vanilla protein powder
cinnamon
pumpkin pie spice
stevia to taste (it is already pretty sweet with the filling, so be careful here)

CREAM FILLING
2 Tbsp 0% plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp  vanilla protein powder
cinnamon
splash of vanilla extract
sprinkle or couple drops of stevia

Blend all pumpkin roll ingredients together in a small blender to a smooth, thick batter consistency. Spoon batter onto a hot griddle and spread into a rectangle shape with a spoon. Cook on both sides. While cooking, stir together all cream filling ingredients until well mixed. Remove pancake from griddle, spread cream filling in center, roll-up, and get ready to fall in love!
