Coconut Vanilla Protein Pancakes

BREAKFAST….It’s my favorite meal of the day. Sadly, this poor meal does not get enough credit or appreciation from its fans. I mean, we spend anywhere from 7-8 hours sleeping….shouldn’t we celebrate the very first meal we have after our food hiatus? I think so! So here it is, a celebratory post about pancakes. These are not your ordinary pancakes…they’re packed full of protein, metabolism boosters and FLAVOR! Yes, you can have all 3 things in a recipe 🙂

One thing that I strongly recommend you use for the creation of this recipe is a food processor. It mixes the ingredients to perfection and gives the pancakes the perfect consistency! 

Without further delay…..here is the recipe:

2 tbsp spelt flour
2 tbsp almond meal
3 tbsp protein powder (I used Trader Joe’s Vanilla Protein)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
1 egg white
4 tbsp almond milk

 

instructions:

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Then add wet ingredients and stir together.  Heat a pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour 2 tbsp of batter to form each pancake.  Cook a few minutes. Once it starts to bubble on top, flip and cook an additional minute or two.  You’ll get exactly 4 pancakes if you measure (and use a spatula to scrape the bowl).

Serve with you toppings of choice.  One delish way to serve it is with some extra coconut and a maple syrup/yogurt combo (2-3 tbsp greek yogurt + 1 tbsp maple syrup + water to thin it out).  YUM.
