A challenge that comes with adopting a mostly plant-based diet is finding ways to make old favourites without animal products while still getting enough protein. In the case of these protein pancakes, it’s extremely simple, and the result was pretty tasty.
This recipe yields four medium-sized, fluffy pancakes. If you use pea protein powder (instead of brown rice protein powder), beware that you might be able to taste it afterward.
You will need:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon (yes!) baking powder
- 1/4 cup protein powder (either brown rice or pea)
- 3/4 cup frozen wild blueberries
- 1.5 cups water (you may need to use a little more or less)
Make sure you whisk all of the ingredients together really well, and cook as you would regular pancakes. And don’t forget the maple syrup!
