Gluten-Free Protein Pancake Recipe

Are you a lover of pancakes like I am, but want to keep it healthy and avoid the standard Hungry Jack box recipe? Or maybe you are gluten or dairy free?! Well, you are in luck! A certain someone found this recipe here and decided to cook them up for me – thanks Josh! They were delicious, packed with protein, nutrients, and gave me the energy I needed to finish a grueling workout. We tweaked the recipe a little and it looked like this:

Ingredients: Serves 2-3

  • 1 cup cooked gluten-free oatmeal (Uncooked oats might be good too – will try this next time)
  • 2 eggs + 5 egg whites (can also do 5 whole eggs instead of using the egg whites only)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional – they are sweeter with the protein powder, but just as good without)
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 cup berries – strawberries were my favorite
  • 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100% maple syrup (be sure to check the label for high fructose corn syrup!)
