You know how sometimes you just really want pancakes for breakfast? A lot of the time I can’t justify them because I eat a low carb/high protein diet and pancakes don’t quite cut it in the protein department. Well, I did some searching for a pancake recipe that includes greek yoghurt, uses oat flour instead of wheat, and how to omit the banana that’s always added. Ta-daa! These light and fluffy pancakes use lovely fresh lemon juice, zest and blueberries with oat flour, protein powder and greek yoghurt.
I don’t typically eat many pancakes in one sitting so this recipe is customised to make just 6, you can just double the recipe for 12. One serving (3 pancakes) has 286 calories, 29g carbs and 17g protein. You can find this recipe on the myfitnesspal database under ddbagel lemon & blueberry greek yoghurt protein pancakes
If you don’t have any oat flour, use a processor to grind some rolled oats into flour.
Combine the lemon juice, zest, greek yoghurt, egg, butter and honey. Mix well.
In a larger bowl combine the oat flour, baking soda and salt.
Add the cinnamon and protein powder and mix.
Add the blueberries and let the mix sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a pan over medium heat and spray with some oil. Add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the pan.
When the pancakes start to bubble, flip them over. Serve with yoghurt and blueberries.
