Who loves pancakes as a special treat on a Sunday – I do! Here’s my recipe for tasty vegan pancakes with a protein boost.
I bought some vegan protein the other week – this stuff from Bulk Powders. I had some just with water in the free shaker supplied (!) and it actually tasted all right. It was a little chalky but perfectly palatable. This time I decided to add it to this tasty pancake mixture for some added extra protein.
These were, I admit, pretty moist so if you are looking for something light and fluffy you may want to look elsewhere but what they lack in fluff they make up for in flavour.
Cinnamony, appley and peanuty chocolate goodness – what’s not to like here?
Here’s the recipe:
MDM’s Protein Packed Cinnamony, Appley and Peanuty Chocolate Pancakes
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup Complete Vegan Blend Protein Powder in Peanut Chocolate flavour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup applesauce (like this yummy homemade one)
1 1/4 cup of almond/soya milk (I used 50:50 because that’s what I had left/open)
2 tbsp cinnamon and nutmeg infused sugar (I keep this in the cupboard – see here. Alternatively add 2 tbsp any sugar + 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg)
- Mix dry ingredients well together.
- Add in wet ingredients and mix to a loose batter.
- Spoon mixture into an oiled, cool to medium frying pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side.
- Drizzle with maple or agave syrup, some more cinnamon sugar and serve with a selection of fruit. Yum!!
