Ultimate Protein Pancakes

21 Sep

6 oz plain Greek yogurt 
1 large egg white
1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
1/4 cup (about 2/3 scoop) vanilla whey protein powder 
1 tsp baking soda 
Any other item to add flavor (strawberries, blueberries, peaches, cinnamon, vanilla extract etc) 
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (protein powder, flour, and baking soda), and mix with a fork until well combined. In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients (egg white and yogurt) and mix until well combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring as you go. The batter should become thick. Add in any extras for flavor, and keep mixing until everything is totally combined. 

Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Drop batter by the spoonful into the pan. Pancakes will expand as they cook, so don’t put them too close together. When little bubbles start to form and burst without closing all throughout the pancake, it’s time to flip it. If you wait till bubbles burst and do not close you only need to flip one time.  Be sure you are cooking completely through but keep to a light golden brown on the crust.  Move pancakes to a plate, and top with any delicious topping to your liking. Very flavorful on their own, but adding a couple of tablespoons of syrup makes for yummy goodness.   Go eat and grow 🙂
