Protein Pancakes

Mmmmm, breakfast! It's the most important meal of the day, right? I used to whip up 6 egg whites with sriracha, some cheese if I felt like it, and often times a handful of spinach.

Since becoming raw, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and sugar-free, I've pegged breakfast the most difficult meal, but I'm getting creative and having fun in the process.  

Enter: Protein Pancakes... Do you remember me talking about these bad boys:

Get in my tummy!

Or how about these:

And these:

Was I the only one who didn't know?!
They were so amazing, even my Dad was stoked--and he's never really been a pancake kind of guy. In fact, for over 20 years I would say he started his day with a greasy ham and cheese omelette. Not anymore! 

Protein Pancakes (vegan, gluten free, soy free)

Yields about 8-10 pancakes or more depending on size

1 1/2 cup Bob's GF pancake mix
1/2 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
1-2 scoops protein
1 banana
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon maca
1 tablespoon cacao nibs
1 tablespoon goji berries (I soaked them in water for a bit)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1) Blend the banana and milk together

2) Place pancake mix, protein, and other dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

3) Whisk together then add the wet ingredients to the dry ones.

4) Oil a pan with coconut oil and get your pancake groove on!

5) Toppings included chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, and more cacao!

I whipped up an afterthought sauce that has endless possibilities... only, I can't remember which one I used for this recipe, so here's a couple variations to try out:)

1 cup berries
6oz SoDelicious greek yogurt (when I made it, I used chocolate!)


1 cup Sambazon Açai Juice
6oz Amande yogurt (when I made it another time, I used coconut!)
