This is a protein pancake I found on a body building site. I’ve made it my own since finding it and I really love making this almost vegan alternative to pancakes.
1 pack - or scoop of vegan - plant based protein powder (Vanilla for this recipe)
1/2 Cup uncooked oatmeal -Blueberry Chia works great
1/2 Cup egg whites (Whites from 3 eggs)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
2 tsp baking powder
First things first we have to make our sub for not having flour. That means we need to take the oatmeal and put in a blender, food processor, or I use a nutribullet (power blender). Grind the oatmeal until it becomes like a flour. Add the baking powder and protein powder and mix again. Add the wet ingredients; the eggs and banana. Mix all ingredients together. Take off blender and add in blueberries and mix with a spoon.
Note: if mixture is too thick, I like to add almond milk, eyeball it, just a little at a time until the mixture is more like a batter.
Heat up the skillet or griddle oround a med heat, too hot and your cakes won’t cook well. Butter it with vegan butter, I love Earth Balance, or use coconut oil to grease up your pan. Add the batter and create pancake shaped circles about the size of a cd. Let sit, be patient, once you see bubbles form and pop, grease your spatula, quickly slide it under neath the cake and in a soft, smooth motion, flip over and cook the other side. Finish up making all the batter and plate with the other half of the banana, the rest of the bloobs, and maybe a sprig of mint for fun. Enjoy your Saturday morning pancakes with a nice cup of fresh coffee or tea, with a dash of cinnamon and honey. Enjoy!
