Quick Protein Pancakes
Got a hungry growing teenager to feed on the morning of a meet – or perhaps a team breakfast to serve with something tasty before a big day at an off-site training camp? Then you’ll need something that packs a punch and satisfies that big swimming hunger while tasting yummy at the same time.
Try these protein-packed protein pancakes which can be made with more or less cinnamon flavor as desired. They feature oats, hemp hearts, milk and eggs, making for a nutritious breakfast or satisfying snack and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and with minimal mess using a blender.
Hemp hearts, the edible insides of hemp seeds, have 50 to 75% more protein than either flax or chia seeds — making them a great addition to pancakes which are typically low in protein. One serving of 3 pancakes packs 21 grams of quality protein and nearly 25% of your fiber for the day.
6, 5” pancakes
1 ¼ cup old-fashioned oats
¼ cup hemp hearts
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup milk of choice
½ ripe banana
Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat.
Combine dry ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until the consistency of flour. Add eggs, milk and banana and blend until smooth.
Pour ¼ cup batter per pancake onto the hot skillet. Sprinkle with sliced fruit or chocolate chips if desired. Flip when the edges begin to firm up, about 3 minutes, and cook another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
Top with fresh fruit, peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, additional hemp hearts — whatever you like!
