Delicious Pancakes Made with Plant-Based Protein Powder
Who doesn't love pancakes for breakfast?
But instead of reaching for the traditional recipe, why not add a protein-packed twist? Pancakes made traditionally with wheat flour and eggs yield mostly carbs and sugar with little to no protein per pancake and thus leave you feeling tired and hungry after breakfast. By adding some protein to the mix, the pancakes will be more filling and nutritious.
Mix your favorite pancake batter with Growing Naturals Organic Pea Protein for an extra protein boost and fluffy texture. Pea protein happens to be an excellent egg replacer since it functions very similarly to eggs helping to bind ingredients and make a fluffy texture. This is great especially if you’re avoiding eggs for vegan or allergy reasons.
Cook the pancakes on a hot griddle until they turn golden brown and fluffy. Serve them with a drizzle of maple syrup (or your choice sweetener) and a sprinkle of fresh berries.
These easy vegan pancake ideas are delicious and great for fueling your day with plant-based protein.
