Add some protein to your breakfast without eggs! Make these Single-Serving Protein Pancakes for a weekend breakfast treat
While this recipe worked for me, it didn’t always have consistent results for everyone, so I created another version of this recipe to try as well: Caramel Chai Protein Pancakes
Finding a quick , healthy, and high-protein breakfast can be a bit of a challenge for me since I can’t eat eggs and I don’t always feel like eating meat for breakfast. To remedy this, I made up these Single-Serving Protein Pancakes that are egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and also happens to be vegan!
I like to top my pancakes with applesauce and cinnamon, homemade Strawberry Jam, or almond butter and agave nectar. Choose healthy toppings and enjoy : )
Note: The ground chia seeds or ground flax seeds are essential to this recipe as a binder. Also, the middle of the pancake takes longer to cook (and will still seem wet) so I would use a little lower heat setting (medium heat) and cook longer than traditional pancakes. Because of the type of ingredients, these will not turn out quite like regular pancakes.
I am working on modifying this recipe so it will have more consistent results; until then, I welcome your positive input! It helps me put together a better recipe
