A good pancake should be light, fluffy and golden brown with a subtle sweetness.
These protein pancakes make a brilliant choice for a healthy, balanced breakfast.
This recipe uses only natural ingredients and no refined flours. It can be whipped up in less than a minute and you can make them as large, flat ‘crepe’ style pancakes or small fluffy ‘American’ style.
For American style pancakes, the baking powder is essential to get that height but for ‘Crepes’ it is important to really whisk your mix so that there are no lumps, allowing the mixture to spread to the edges of the pan.
You will only need a few ingredients to make this recipe, and once made you can always freeze any leftover pancakes.
Top Tip: Toast frozen pancakes to gently warm them back up
