Craving pancakes? Try these healthier protein pancakes!
Pancakes are super delicious, but being mindful about nutrition, we know that they are high in carbs and low in protein, so they’re not necessarily the best option for a well-balanced breakfast. So, I made these healthier protein pancakes to solve that problem!
This recipe is super quick and easy to make and can even be prepped ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
~1 scoop all-natural protein powder of choice (I like MRM brand natural vanilla whey protein and Growing Naturals pea protein!)
~3T oat flour
~1 egg white
~1tsp. baking powder
~sprinkle of cinnamon & stevia
~2-3T unsweetened almond or cashew milk
Spray a non-stick pan with coconut oil cooking spray and heat over medium heat. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg white and non-dairy milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and whisk until well combined. Add batter to the heated pan and cook until bubbles begin to form. Carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes. You can make a few smaller pancakes or one huge one!
This recipe is very versatile and you can add some delicious goods right into the batter like fresh blueberries, pecans, or chocolate chips 😉
Once cooked, you can top the pancakes with fruit, nut butter, unsweetened shredded coconut, a drizzle of pure maple syrup or raw honey. Get creative with your toppings!
