Had a hankering for pancakes this morning and decided to roll with it! (I'd post a picture of the actual pancakes, but they do NOT look pretty despite tasting amazing.) Vegan Protein Pancakes
(gluten free, vegan, paleo, delicious)
1/2 c Almond Meal (I dehydrate the leftovers when I make almond milk)
1/4 c Protein Powder (I used Hemp Protein, but Sun Warrior would be awesome!)
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 c Almond Milk
(3-5 drops NuNaturals Stevia if your protein powder is unsweetened)
Mix it Up:
1. Whisk together almond meal, protein powder, baking powder and cinnamon. Slowly add almond milk (and stevia if desired), stirring until combined.
2. Pre-heat a griddle or cast iron pan, greased with a little coconut oil. It's ready when a drop of water sizzles on impact.
3. Place 1/4 cup scoops of the pancake batter on the griddle and cook for 3-4 min/side, or until they lift easily with a spatula (don't undercook...they'll fall apart!)
I topped mine with a little smear of peanut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup (also known as the best combo ever.) Hooraaaaaay breakfast!
