Oatmeal Blueberry Protein Pancakes

IMG_9330

First let me start by saying that this recipe is a great compromise. These aren’t your old fashioned fluffy buttermilk pancakes and they’re not as yummy as the protein pancakes I’ve made before. But what this recipe does have going for it and why I’ll probably be making these more often than any others is that it’s gluten free, sugar free, higher protein, super easy to make in a hurry, and quick to cook. Bonus: Aurelia absolutely loved them and has been asking for more since.

I topped mine with a bit of plain yogurt and cinnamon and then later with a bit of almond butter and tiny bit of maple syrup. I preferred the yogurt topping with the blueberries inside. The almond butter topping was more filling. Really, plain would hit the spot most of the time too. It just feels like a treat to wake up and have pancakes, even if you’re in a hurry and they’re actually pretty darn good for you.

Oatmeal Protein Pancakes
Adapted from The Iron Den

Ingredients:

Instructions:
Mix all the ingredients except the blueberries together into a batter using a blender. Heat up a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour the batter by the quarter cup into the hot skillet to make individual pancakes. Top each pancake with a few blueberries, if using. Flip when the edges of the batter become dry and bubbles form in the middle. Cook for about a minute longer then remove from the skillet to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter until you’ve made all the pancakes you can (I got 6 small ones total) and serve.
