Apple Spice Protein Pancakes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Serving Size: 2 medium pancakes

Apple Spice Protein Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 30g Oats (ground into flour)
  • 27g Protein Powder (I used Trutein Cinnabun)
  • 1/8 tsp lite salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 45g non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 drops liquid stevia (I've used both Hazelnut & Vanilla flavored)
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • For Apple Topping
  • 1/2 small apple (I used a Fuji)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
  • optional: walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat griddle (or pan) at a medium low heat (cooking at a higher temp will result in a less fluffy pancake OR they will burn on the outside/ be gooey on the inside)
  2. After grinding your oats to a flour, mix in remaining ingredients well.
  3. Pour onto preheated griddle and let cook until golden brown on each side (will take longer than a traditional pancake)
  4. Note: The amount of water needed will depend on the type of protein powder you use. It's better to start with less water and add more in small increments (your batter should be the consistency of a thick pudding). This is is key if you want your pancakes to turn out fluffy
  5. While the pancakes are cooking, slice you apple thinly and place in microwave on high for approx 2 mins
  6. Remove apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon & apple pie spice
  7. Top your pancakes with the baked apple, walnuts and any other optional toppings (I love to add a generous drizzle of sugar free syrup)
