How to make protein pancakes
- Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients
In a bowl, combine coconut flour, whey protein, eggs, salt, and baking powder.
- Step 2: Combine Milk and Make a smooth batter
Combine milk and use a balloon whisk to make a smooth batter.
- Step 3: Cook
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. You can also use a griddle if you want. Once it is hot, add the cooking fat that you are using and allow it to warm up. Use a 1/4 cup as a scoop to make equal-sized pancakes. I can only make one at a time. But, if your skillet is large you can make 3-4 or sometimes even 5 pancakes at once. Cook for 3-4 minutes until you start seeing bubbles forming on the outside. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
- Step 4: Enjoy!
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy your high protein pancake.
I like to enjoy my Protein Pancakes with Maple syrup or Honey.
For toppings, I like using fresh blueberries, sometimes strawberries, and that's it. You can add bananas, whipped cream, or chocolate chips for more flavor.
You can add some nut butter, such as peanut butter or cashew butter.
What Kind of Protein Powder should I use?
I have used vanilla-flavored whey protein. But, this is not labeled as "zero carbs" or "ripped" or "whey isolate".
You shouldn't be using a protein powder for baking which has "zero carbs" or "ripped" written on it.
It contains CLA and other fat-burning ingredients which will ruin your recipe completely.
I prefer Whey Protein. You can use any flavor that you like. These days there are endless flavors available in the market.
You can use chocolate hazelnut or strawberries and cream or cookies and cream or pistachio and cashew flavored protein.
Choose any kind of protein that you like.
Can I use Casein Protein Powder?
Yes. In fact, I love using Casein Protein Powder. It's my go to for most of my High Protein Baking recipes. Such as :-
- Strawberry Protein Balls
- Healthy Blueberry Muffins
- Healthy Sugar Free Tiramisu (High Protein)
- Protein Truffles Recipe
- Protein Carrot Cake Bars
