the easiest single serving protein pancakes
I’m a messy girl by nature. I don’t like to play around with pancakes too much because A) They create a certain catastrophe in the kitchen and B) I tend to eat more than is nutritionally responsible and end up feeling sluggish after. (willpower=0)
To deal with these #pancakeproblemz I wanted to develop a formula that brought back pancake-prep to the basics; keeping a hearty but healthy serving size for one, and of course a deliciously balanced breakfast.
I like my pancakes full of protein, so at least if i’m feasting on them I am going to be full for hours after.
Sugar-free of course to make sure the rest of your day your feeling clean, mean and clear-headed.
The flours I used are a mix of almonds, oats and raw buckwheat groats. Blending them yourself ensures optimum freshness and saves you some coin as well. I enjoy this blend because again it is high in protein, fiber and has a delicious nutty taste in baked goods.
GET SAUCY- my favourites are warmed berries, and coconut yogurt mixed with spirulina.
SO go ahead- make pancakes JUST for you, on a WEEKDAY, and feel awesome about it.
the easiest single serving protein pancakes recipe
- 3/4 gluten free flour blend (I blended a combination of buckwheat groats, oats and almonds until fine)
- 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp flaxseed meal + 2 Tbsp water)
- 1 large ripe banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup plant milk
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder* optional
- teaspoon of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- In food processor or blender, blend your oats, buckwheat groats and almonds until they form a flour-like consistency.
- In a medium bowl combine flax egg, mashed banana, and milk with a whisk.
- Next, add in flour mixture, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and protein powder (if using)
- Whisk the entire mixture until just combined- ensuring there are no clumps or dry spots
- Let mixture sit for 2-3 minutes. While mixture is sitting, heat up a large non-stick pan to medium-high, and grease lightly with coconut oil.
- Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop our 5-6 portions of batter onto hot griddle.
- Pancakes are ready to flip when little bubbles begin to form in batter (3-5 minutes)
- Cook for 1-3 more minutes on the other side and then they are ready to serve!
