Pancakes are a breakfast staple that can often feel like an indulgence. With a few healthy swaps though, pancakes can be a filling, but still sweet, breakfast with just as much protein as an egg. Double (or even triple) this recipe to feed the whole family.
Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes
Serves 1 (recipe can easily be doubled to serve more)
½ cup almond flour
2 tablespoons hemp protein powder (I used Nutiva brand)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Butter, ghee, or coconut oil (for frying pancakes)
Add all of the pancake ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Add a little bit of oil to a pan (I use a cast iron) over medium heat. Pour pancakes using a ¼ cup measuring cup and allow to cook until bubbles start to form.
Flip the pancakes and continue cooking for another 1-3 minutes until ready.
Serve with toppings of choice and enjoy!
Note: if your batter is too thick, you can thin it out a little bit with your favorite milk.
