Perfecting the Protein Pancake

I’ve been spending some time trying to perfect the protein pancake. I’ve played around with a few recipes before, some good some bad, but I think I’ve finally found what works best for me!

perfect protein pancakes

Serving size: Makes 3 medium-sized pancakes.

1 scoop protein powder (my scoop was 33 g of vanilla soy protein)
1/4 C oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites (1/4 cup liquid egg whites)
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
1-2 packets of stevia (I use Truvia)

Mix the dry ingredients together: protein powder, flour, stevia and baking powder in a bowl.

In a smaller bowl combine the egg whites, almond milk and chia seeds. Then let the chia seeds soak in the mixture for a couple of mins so it forms a gel-like consistency.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Coat a pan with some non-stick spray and add the batter. I usually flip it after a minute or two but it depends.

Top your pancakes with some fruit and honey, or nut butter and a few chocolate chips if you so desire!

Super excited about this recipe! I may experiment some more by adding cinnamon and vanilla extract to the batter. Or maybe i’ll add half a banana next time instead of stevia for a sweeter, creamier texture.
