Who doesn't love pancakes? They are a highly popular breakfast choice whenever athletes go off their diet for a day. They also make a great reward after a long and dedicated season.

Here is a recipe for protein pancakes that can work really well for you on mornings when eggs and oats won't cut it.

How to Make Protein Pancakes

Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of oat flour (if you don't have oat flour, grind up two cups of old fashioned oats in a food processor)
  • 1 scoop of the protein powder of your choice (I use Iso Lean Pro by Labrada Nutrition)
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon of Stevia
  • 1 whole large egg
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • ½ cup water

Directions

  • Mix ingredients in a bowl.
  • Place a griddle or non-stick pan on your stove at medium heat.
  • Pour the batter onto the cooking surface. Cook until it becomes solid enough to flip.
  • Flip it and cook other side to the same consistency.
  • Repeat with desired number of pancakes.
  • Eat or store in your freezer to enjoy later (if you freeze them, separate them with parchment paper and place in a freezer bag; when you're ready to eat, remove pancakes from bag, place in microwave, and heat until they're warm).
  • Add maple syrup or topping of choice.
