Ahoy, fellow breakfast aficionado! If you're on the hunt for a breakfast that's as delicious as it is nutritious, look no further than protein pancakes! These flapjacks are a powerhouse of flavour and protein, perfect for kickstarting your day with a smile. So, buckle up and prepare for a culinary adventure. Here's a quirky and customizable recipe for protein pancakes. Let's start with the ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats (or oat flour, if you're feeling fancy)
  • 1 scoop (about 30g) of protein powder (pick your favorite flavor, it's your pancake party!)
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (let it be the smooth operator in this batter)
  • 2 eggs (the unsung heroes that bind it all together)
  • 1/2 cup of milk (dairy or non-dairy, whichever floats your pancake boat)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder (the magical leavening agent)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional, but recommended for that extra oomph)
  • Pinch of salt (to balance out the sweetness)

Blend Oats (if using whole oats)

Got oats? Blend them until they're as smooth as a pancake batter dream. If you've got oat flour, kudos to you—skip this step and move on to the mixing!


Mix Dry Ingredients

In a bowl, gather your oat flour, protein powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Give it a good stir and let the dry party mingle. Check the link below to see a selection of protein powders available.


Mix Wet Ingredients

In another bowl, mash that banana like it's your job. Add in the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract (if you're feeling fancy). Whisk it all together until it's a smooth and creamy concoction.


Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now, pour the wet goodness into the bowl of dry wonders. Mix it up until you've got yourself a silky pancake batter. If it's too thick, add a splash more milk to get it to your desired consistency.


Heat the Pan

Time to fire up the skillet! Set it to medium heat and let it warm up while you prepare for pancake pouring.


Cook the Pancakes

Once the pan is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. If you're feeling adventurous, throw in some blueberries, chocolate chips, or nuts for that extra pizzazz.


Watch for Bubbles

Keep an eye on those pancakes—they'll start to form bubbles on top. That's your cue to flip! Carefully turn them over and let the other side cook to golden perfection.


Serve and Enjoy

Stack 'em up on a plate and let your creativity run wild with toppings. Fresh fruit, yogurt, nut butter, or a drizzle of maple syrup—go wild and make these pancakes your own!


Storage

Got leftovers? No worries! Pop them in the fridge in an airtight container. They make for a delightful grab-and-go breakfast, easily reheated in the toaster or microwave.
