These Amazing Protein Pancakes or Waffles, have become a staple to my weekend! I need to thank my buddy James for giving me the recipe a while back. The photos are from Waffle Time.
Warning: Don’t try to sub in Coconut Flour, it’s a disaster. They fall apart and won’t hold together on a flip. Figured that out the hard way.
- 1 Serving of Vanilla Protein Powder ( I use MuscleTech or EAS Lean 15, Links below)
- ¼ cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- ¼ Cup Greek Non Fat Yogurt
- 2 - Egg Whites (or Egg Beaters, which is what I used here)
- Mix all dry ingredients together.
- Add in Milk, yogurt, egg whites to dry ingredients and mix together until smooth.
- Heat a pan or griddle on medium (or get your Waffle Maker going). Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to spoon a portion into the pan, or use half of the amount of mix for waffles, (will make 2 waffles).
- Let cook on one side for about a minute, every stove will vary, a good way to know when to flip is when small bubbles start to form in from the edge of the pancake.
- When this happens flip pancake, and cook on other side for about the same time.
Add in: For peanut butter pancakes or waffles, and 2 tablespoons of powdered PB2 peanut butter. (It’s delicious!! and does not change the nutritional value too much!)
Add some Sugar Free Pancake syrup (not included in totals below) and you are good to go, a nice filling breakfast that satisfies my desire for carbs. (Not included in the nutrition info listed below, but it’s only like 40 Calories).
Note: Be careful when making protein pancakes, as protein powder is more apt to burn faster than typical pancakes.
