Pancake Addict

I'm a self-confessed pancake addict. Pancakes are my GO-TO winter breakfast. They make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Personally for me pancakes represent love and nourishment. I also love the way they make my kitchen smell of vanilla on a cold winter’s morning.

They are a food that i could create 100 different recipes. There are endless possibilities and combinations. Some mornings my body craves vegan pancakes made from oats and banana and others I feel like a Low carb, protein-packed pancake recipe.


This month I'm sharing with you my newest low carb, grain free, ketogenic friendly recipe. I've also included a vegan alternative and two of my favourite pancake sauce recipes. I added a tsp of beetroot latte mix to my sauce for a pop of colour.



Low carb paleo pancakes


Serves: 2 Large servings - 3 medium size pancakes per serve.


Ingredients:

2 scoops or 60g plant-based flavoured protein powder. *see notes below

1 tbs, e.g. ground flaxseed meal or chia

1 tbs almond meal

1 tbs coconut flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1 whole egg

1/3 cup + 1-2 tbs of Dairy free milk or water


Your toppings of choice - my special pancake syrup or sauce, berries, unsweetened coconut yogurt, cacao nibs, sugar-free maple syrup.


Directions:

In a medium size, bowl mix all your dry ingredients.

in a small bowl whisk together the wet ingredients and then add them to the dry mix. Stir well; the mixture should be thicker than regular pancakes.

Heat 1/2 tbs coconut oil in a Large fry pan on medium to high heat.

Spoon your pancake mixture into your pan using a spoon to flatten the mix to a nice round pancake size. Cook for a few minutes on each side and repeat with the remaining mixture until all your pancakes are cooked.


I used the BLESSED salted caramel plant based protein powder for this recipe. Blessed protein is a great texture and taste. One of my other favourite protein powder brands for pancakes is PRANA power plant protein.
