- 1 cup oat flour (you can make your own by blending rolled oats in a food processor until they are a fine flour consistency)
- 1 scoop USN® protein powder of your choice (vanilla or chocolate work well)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Optional toppings: sliced fruit, nut butter, maple syrup, etc.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oat flour, protein powder, baking powder, and cinnamon until well combined.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg with a fork and then add in the almond milk and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter. If the batter is too thick, you can add a bit more almond milk to thin it out.
Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Once it's hot, use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop the batter onto the pan.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the pancakes are golden brown and cooked through.
Serve your protein pancakes with your favorite toppings. Sliced fruit, nut butter, and a drizzle of maple syrup are all delicious options.
