Hey guys! I am so excited for today’s recipe
because a lot of you have requested this. A healthy pancake recipe! This recipe is gluten
free, it’s guilt free and it is packed with protein but the best part is you don’t use
any protein powder. The batter that I’m going to show you is just a base so you can add
whatever flavor ingredients you want when you make it and it will also work in a waffle
iron. For my protein pancakes you can start by combining
oats, egg whites, cottage cheese, baking powder, vanilla, coconut flour, and a pinch of salt.
If you don’t have coconut flour any flour should work for this recipe. It’s really just
used as a thickening agent but because coconut flour is more dense than other flours you
might have to substitute a little bit more of a wheat based flour. So that is the base
recipe. To flavor these today I’m going to add bananas
and blueberries. I like to add some fruit into the batter for flavor and color and then
add additional fruit to the batter when it’s cooking. Blend all ingredients until fully
combined. You are looking for a really nice pancake batter mixture here. You can always
thicken it up with a little more coconut flour or use a little bit of water to thin it out. Now it’s time to cook ’em up! I like to use
my handy dandy batter blaster to distribute the batter but you can use whatever other
inferior utensil you prefer. And today I’m using my electric griddle to cook these up
but of course a skillet or a frying pan will work just fine. To my sprayed pan I like to
add a few pieces of fruit and then the batter on top. This way I’m in full control of making
sure every bite of pancake gets a little bit of fruit. And again those fruit chunks are
optional but recommended. Cook for just a few minutes until the edges
begin to set and the tops start to bubble. And then you can flip ’em like normal pancakes.
Allow to cook for another minute or two before plating and devouring. This entire recipe
is only 250 calories with about 25 grams of carbs, only three grams of fat and a whopping
25 grams of protein. That’s not bad for no powder. And I promise you they taste way better
than pancakes made with whey protein because anytime I cook with whey protein it comes
out gummy and nasty. And remember you can totally make this in
a WAFFLE iron which I actually prefer because it gives it a nice crispy coating. So that
is my protein packed pancake recipe. Get creative with whatever fillings you want to add-in
and comment below to let me know what fruit you’re going to add. There is a PDF download
available in the description box with this recipe included and of course it is on mindovermunch.com.
