Gingerbread Protein Pancakes Recipe

I love making holiday themed pancakes! This gingerbread protein pancakes recipe was no exception, these pancakes taste so good! This are a great holiday breakfast choice because it pleases all ages, from kids to adults :) and they are gluten-free. I thought about this after but, you could also use a gingerbread cookie cutter to cut out gingerbread shapes(more for kids) I think that would have been pretty neat!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 ripe banana – mashed
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • maple syrup and butter

Directions

  1. Place oats in blender and pulse until flour forms. It doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth.
  2. In a bowl, whisk oat flour, protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, baking powder, salt and ground cloves together.
  3. In a another bowl, combine wet ingredients: mashed banana, egg, milk, molasses and vanilla.
  4. Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined.
  5. Heat griddle over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Working ¼ cup at a time, pour batter onto heated griddle.
  6. Cook first side until bubbles begin to form, which should be about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until other side is lightly browned.
  7. Serve with maple syrup and butter if you wish(or holiday themed sprinkled and whip cream!)
