High Protein Pancakes (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Paleo)
I see a tonne of pancakes on Instagram weekly. Vegan ones, paleo ones, decadent ones, fruity ones, chocolate ones, protein powder heavy ones, you name it. Everytime I looked at the recipe though, it didn't quite sit with the way I do things in my kitchen. The ingredients didn't suit me.
So I finally got out of the rut of thinking that 'pancakes take too long' and created my own.
They take 5 minutes to make the mix, and about 2 minutes to cook per pancake. Easy!
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Low Fodmap & Paleo Friendly.
Serves 1 - makes 3 pancakes.
1/4 cup almond milk - I use Inside Out Unsweetened
2 large eggs
1/4 cup almond meal
1 tbsp vanilla protein powder - I used a pea/brown rice blend, whey would work too.
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder (optional)
1. Combine all the ingredients together using a hand/stick blender.
2. Set a pan to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the pan if it's not non-stick. I used a little butter. Pour 1/3 of the mix into the pan. Flip when the bottom is golden. Cook for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes total.
3. Repeat with the remainder of the mix.
4. Serve warm with your favourite toppings.
