Homemade High Protein Pancakes
While making the family pancakes in the usual fashion (Krusteaz buttermilk mix), I decided I wanted 1 or 2 for myself, but didn’t want to use the mix.
So, I dug into my memory of the days when I used to make homemade buttermilk pancakes…but how to make them healthier than even that?
I whipped up this recipe off the top of my head and they were DELICIOUS! Low-fat, protein-rich and added fiber.
Serves just one person 2 medium pancakes – (you can play around with measurements if desiring to make more
1/4 c. unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. Konsyl All-Natural Fiber
2 tsp. of vanilla shake powder
1 heaping tbs. Greek yogurt (I use Chobani plain)
1 egg white
approximately 1/4 c. water – gradually add more if needed but you don’t want batter too thick or too runny
Heat skillet and add a small amount of olive oil. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and mix. Add egg white and yogurt and water. Mix well without over-mixing. Cook as you would ordinarily cook pancakes.
NOTE: I’m sure I will play around with this recipe even more to see if I can trim those ingredients down a bit and make this recipe “cleaner”. Any updates will be posted here so if interested, subscribe to my blog or to this post so you can be updated!
