I’ve got a great recipe here for protein pancakes that, hold your breath, are not gluten free. I’m a big believer in not cutting whole food groups out of your life, and that includes “carbs” (which is an annoying name cause most produce you eat will have carbohydrates in it, but I digress). So, I naturally put whole wheat flour occasionally into my protein pancakes. It makes them feel a bit more hardier to me. Now, if you want more of a pancake texture then add more flour (whole wheat so that it isn’t the bleached and more processed stuff). If you don’t mind your pancakes a bit gummier (which is the name I’ve given to the texture of most protein baked goods), then don’t add any. It’s up to you. This recipe is very versatile and you can change the flavors and add things like dark chocolate chips or blueberries. It’s all up to you. Vary the flavors you can do that you don’t get sick of it. That’s the key to sticking to a “diet” or what I like to call healthy life styling. So read the recipe below, try it out, and if you like it or have any suggestions then comment below!!
- 1 scoop (32 g) Pescience select pb cookie protein powder (this brand I’ve found is the best to bake with but feel free to experiment with other brands)
- 2 tbsp (~15 g) whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 lg egg
- Water to consistency
To make, simply mix all the above ingrediants, adding water to your desired consistency. I don’t like mine too thick or too thin. But side note: if you make it very thin you can make crepes and fill them with fruit and syrup to your desire.
Once mixed simply poor into a pan that had been brought to medium heat and sprayed with cooking spray (I always use olive oil spray but up to you) to keep it from sticking. Wait 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown and flip. Continue until you’ve used all your mix. I typically can make 3 small-medium pancakes.
This breakfast is pretty low in calories and carbs so I often will either double the recipe or add fruit or natural pb (cause I live off peanut butter).
Enjoy! And remember to comment your thoughts below 😁
