WHY YOU’LL LOVE THESE HIGH-PROTEIN PANCAKES


• High in protein. Each serving of these pancakes has 26 grams of protein in them! (Compared this to regular pancakes that have about 3 grams of protein in them)
• No Banana. Many protein powder pancake recipes are made with a banana. Which means you need to have a ripe banana on hand and also want banana in your pancakes. But not this recipe!
• Customizable. You can use unflavored protein powder, vanilla protein powder or even chocolate or peanut butter protein powder if that’s what you’re into!

INGREDIENTS


Flour: I use all-purpose flour in these pancakes but if you want to make them extra healthy you can use oat flour. (Made by blending up oats into flour)
Protein powder: Use a protein powder that you love. I recommend using whey protein powder in pancakes for a lighter and fluffier texture.
Baking powder: this is used to make the pancakes rise and become light and fluffy.
Milk: I use almond milk but you can use any type of milk you like.
Egg: the egg will help bind everything together and add a little more protein to the pancakes!
Oil: I use avocado oil but you can also use vegetable oil, coconut oil or butter.
Vanilla extract (optional): to flavour the pancakes. If you use vanilla protein powder you can leave this out.

THE PROCESS

STEP 1
Mix the flour, protein powder and baking soda together in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the milk, egg, oil and vanilla extract together.


STEP 2
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together to combine the batter. Don’t overmix.

STEP 3
Heat a large pan on medium heat and lightly coat with oil. Spoon the pancake batter into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side

WHAT TO SERVE WITH PROTEIN PANCAKES

HOW TO STORE, FREEZE AND REHEAT.

Fridge: store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Freezer: let the pancakes cool completely, then place them on a baking sheet and place in the fridge for 1 hour to lightly freeze. Once they’re slightly frozen, place the pancakes into a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 2 months. To defrost thaw on the counter.

Reheat: reheat the pancakes in a lightly greased pan on medium-high heat, in the oven at 350 degrees F for 3-4 minutes, in the toaster or in the microwave.
