Protein-Packed Oat Pancakes

23 Jun

I had made a bunch of extra oat flour in the food processor last weekend and decided to experiment a little this morning while Rafe was still in bed… And these turned out excellent! I really loved the nutty flavor of the oat flour, and barely even could taste the protein powder at all! The only slight issue is that these were a little bit harder to flip than normal flour pancakes (though I will not discount the possibility of user error, since I am just about the worst pancake flipper in the world).

This was an incredibly decadent start to the day, and one that will definitely be repeated. And not only do you have the protein from the powder, but also the protein from the oats!

Ingredients

  • 1 c oat flour
  • 1/3 c chocolate protein powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • dash cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/3 c almond milk (plus 2 tbsp I added to thin it out)

Method

  • Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Whisk all the wet ingredients together in a small bowl. Once smooth, whisk the wet into the dry. You might need to add a smidge extra milk if the mixture isn’t thin enough for pancakes (the oat flour and protein powder together is a little bit of a black box).
  • PAM a nonstick fry pan (already hot), pouring the mixture in spoonfuls onto the pan and frying like pancakes.
  • Eat with berries!!
