Greek Protein Pancakes
These delicious Greek Protein Pancakes take everything you love about a pancake breakfast, but swap in natural ingredients in place of the oils and butters.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Honey, for topping
- Bananas, for topping
- In a blender, combine the rolled oats, flour, flax seeds, baking soda, and salt. Briefly pulse together for about 30 seconds. Add the yogurt, eggs, coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.
- Leave the batter to thicken. In our kitchen with high humidity, this happened between 15-20 minutes.
- Over medium heat, warm a nonstick pan brushed lightly with coconut oil.
- Once the pan is hot, ladle 1/4 cup of pancake batter into the pan.
- Cook until the pancakes are golden brown. You'll know they've reached the desired color when small bubbles form and then pop on the surface. This typically takes about 2 minutes.
- Flip and cook the other side for another two minutes.
- Place the cooked pancakes on a baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven as you continue making pancakes.
- Serve with any toppings you'd like, though we are always partial to bananas and honey!
