Caffeinated Pumpkin Powercakes and GIVEAWAY

I cannot imagine a more perfect protein supplement for resident physicians. CLICK is an easy add-on to whatever sort of hectic, shaken not stirred sort of morning you may be having, and the 16 grams of protein sustains. This week, I’ve been on nights, chugging like a Night Train up and down lonely, dark wards, fourteen hours at a stretch. Yesterday I heated and frothed up some milk, dumped in two scoops of this caramel CLICK powder, and what a sweet treat to get the day, or night, kickstarted. This post is sponsored by my friends at CLICK, and I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY on their behalf for those who comment on this post and check out their other fun products.  Chance to win ends Oct 31st at 9pm CST. Winner will be notified by email.*




You can do many variations on a latte with this stuff for fall—Pumpkin Spice Latte, etc. You can also make frozen blended drinks. Or, you might want to try out these pancakes I call powercakes.


Caffeinated Pumpkin Powercakes

adapted from the CLICK recipe blog

2 scoops CLICK caramel or vanilla protein powder

1/2 cup pumpkin

1/4 tsp pumpkin spice + 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking powder

3 egg whites

2/3 cup oats

1/2 cup water

Easy enough, put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!


Heat a cast iron skillet. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Serve warm! I thought these were pretty sweet and didn’t need any added syrup. There is quite a bit of caffeine here with just the powder, so be sure that you don’t overdo it with the morning jo to boot!

** GIVEAWAY details: just comment on this blog after visiting the CLICK site; let me know which product you’d like to try! Winner gets the following stuff:

  1. This is like seriously the coffee lovers protein go to!! It’s amazing I’m such a big fan ???? I thought I knew every recipe but yum I’m going to have to try these ❤️ Thank you so much for doing this awesome giveaway ????

  2. Leave it to a medical resident – and Pacific Northwest native – to come up with a way to make caffeinated pancakes! 😉 Also, I am so impressed – and not at all surprised 🙂 – that companies keep coming to you to get their products on your wonderful blog, look at you! 🙂 XOXOXO P.S. The Click Mocha looks like the best product they make to me, given my love of chocolate 🙂

  3. I think the caramel variety would be my first choice for the pancakes, but if I was drinking it with milk, I would go with the vanilla latte.
