Buckwheat Protein Pancakes make a delicious healthy breakfast to start the day. Made with protein-rich buckwheat flour and protein powder to make you one satisfying breakfast! This recipe is gluten free and dairy free.
2tbspflavoured protein powder- I prefer simple flavours like vanilla, chocolate or salted caramel in these pancakes but use whatever you like!
1/3cupcarton (drinking) coconut milk- or any other milk of choice e.g. almond milk
olive oil, butter or coconut oilfor frying
Place buckwheat flour, protein powder, coconut flour and baking powder (and cinnamon, if using) in a mixing bowl and lightly whisk them together.
Add the egg and coconut milk to the same mixing bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until they start to form a smooth batter, which should be the consistency of a thick custard.
Heat a small nonstick pan up to a low heat on the stove. Add a teaspoon of olive oil/coconut oil/butter. Scoop in about two heaped tablespoons of the batter, gently smoothing it out a little to form a pancake shape.
Cook for approximately 1.5 - 2 minutes, or until a few bubbles poke through the surface, then flip and cook for another minute. (You want to flip them as soon as you are able to, to avoid burning).
Repeat the process with the remaining batter; you should make 4-5 small pancakes. Add a little extra oil to the pan as needed as you cook as needed.
FOR DAIRY FREE PANCAKES PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PROTEIN POWDER IS DAIRY FREE. Use pea protein, brown rice protein, hemp protein etc. Whey protein is milk-derived.
