GINGERBREAD PROTEIN PANCAKES


I LOVE pancakes. But as we know, they are not the best when it comes to living healthier. So, when I am in the mood to feel like "I'm cheating", I whip up these bad boys and I am good to go without the guilt!




Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground ginger

1 pinch ground cloves

1 pinch ground nutmeg

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

⅓ cup reduced fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt

4 large egg whites (½ cup)

¼ cup dry old-fashioned rolled oats

2 Tbsp. coconut flour

½ tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. molasses (Blackstrap if possible)

Nonstick cooking spray

¼ medium pear,

cut into bite-sized chunks (optional)


Instructions

To make spice mix, combine cinnamon, ginger, cloves,

and nutmeg in a small bowl; mix well. Set aside.

Combine protein powder, yogurt, egg whites, oats,

coconut flour, 1 tsp. spice mix, baking powder, and

molasses in a medium bowl; mix well.

Heat large nonstick skillet lightly coated with spray over

medium heat.

Ladle about ¼ cup batter for each pancake; cook for 2 to

3 minutes, or until bubbles form on top. Flip. Cook for 1

to 2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Repeat until all batter is used.

Serve two pancakes topped with pear, if desired, serve

immediately.
