Light, fluffy and full of goodness! I love pancakes! I make them frequently as I’m always trying to master the ‘perfect’ pancake. My absolute favourite pancakes are these sweet potato ones that I just can’t get enough of! As delicious as they are, they do require some time as you have to boil the sweet potato, which isn’t always ideal when you want a quick and healthy breakfast before heading off to work. But trust me, they are incredible!
These apple cinnamon pancakes came to me on a whim! My boyfriend had made some brown rice flakes for his breakfast and had left some for me. I didn’t particularly feel like eating them so I decided to mixed a bunch of random ingredients together, and viola! These puppies were born! They are easy, delicious, full of protein, contain NO added sugar and are gluten free! The only sweetness you’ll find in these pancakes are from sweet and fibrous apples! Grated apples help keep these pancakes moist and fluffy. Enjoy!
Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes
1 cup brown rice flakes ( I use Eden Organic- only takes 3 minutes to cook!!)
1 organic egg + 2 egg whites (feel free to add more egg whites for more protein)
2-3 scoops vanilla protein powder (whey or brown rice protein work)
Half an organic apple, grated (slice remaining apple and top on pancakes)
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut oil
** If you want some extra sweetness feel free to add 1 tbsp coconut sugar or sucanat.
Cook brown rice flakes for 3 minutes in 2 cups of water. Let cool. Mix in remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Heat coconut oil in a non stick pan. Using a large spoon, scoop out pancake mix into pan to your desired size. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Top with almond butter, cinnamon and sliced apples!
