These pancakes can be used with any high-quality, low-carb protein powder and topped with a bit of fruit or nut butter for a healthy meal (just make sure to count the extra calories or units!)
1 ½ cups almond flour
¼ cup Isopure whey protein (sold in the office in either vanilla or chocolate)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine almond flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Give it a good stir to make sure all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
In a separate, larger bowl, whisk together almond milk, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Slowly add dry ingredients to wet, whisking until it becomes a smooth batter.
Once your batter is ready to go, heat a skillet to a medium temperature, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or cooking spray and pour about ¼ cup of batter onto the pan.
Wait until bubbles start to appear at the surface of your pancake and flip it over to the other side (about 3 minutes on each side) Be careful flipping the pancake as they are a bit more fragile than regular pancakes.
