Smooth aromas of honey and vanilla create a beautiful balance to the robust buckwheat flavor, making these Honey Vanilla Buckwheat Protein Pancakes a delicious and hearty, yet healthy breakfast!
Comin in hot with another protein pancake recipe for ya! That’s right, Honey Vanilla Buckwheat Protein Pancakes. I guess that’s what happens when one deprives themselves of their protein pancake free-for-all when they are going through 3 months of home renovations.
GOD life has been great now that we’re done working on the house and now that I actually have time to cook my favorite breakfast item of choice – protein pancakes. I think my husband is actually pretty blown away that I haven’t had some sort of pancake variety for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Oh yes. That is totally something I could do. Protein Pancakes. all day. everyday. Boom.
I’ve been experimenting a little with some new ingredients and combinations and this time around I decided to throw in a little buckwheat flour. YES! Believe it or not, although “wheat” is in the name, it’s actually wheat free and gluten free! That’s right, buckwheat flour is gluten free.
I love my oat flour, simply because it always does the trick, but I wholeheartedly believe it’s always a good thing to mix it up. Plus, now I get to add another type to my massive flour collection.
Buckwheat flour is pretty strong and bold in taste, so the smooth honey and soft vanilla compliment it well and create a deliciously balanced bite.
- ¾ Scoop About Time Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
- 2 TBS Buckwheat Flour
- 1⁄4 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 Egg
- 1⁄2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Honey
- 1⁄2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1⁄4 tsp Xantham Gum
- Mix all protein pancake ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Heat griddle or frying pan over low-medium heat.
- Once warm, spray with cooking spray and pour batter in small circular shapes. The batter should appear to look very similar to a regular pancake batter.
- After about 4 minutes, or when bottom of pancake is firm or lightly browned, flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes. (Batter will not bubble like a typical pancake, so watch closely!)
- Remove from skillet with spatula and stack protein pancakes on plate.
- Drizzle pancake stack with all-natural honey. Enjoy!
So this weekend (or this afternoon, or this evening, or for a snack), try this new protein pancake stack! It’s a good hearty meal and with a whopping 29 grams of protein!
