Cast your vote for Gluten-Free Vegan Protein Pancake

A healthy, Gluten-free, Vegan, Carb Concious, Protein Friendly Breakfast Alternative

I must admit, I am a little bit of a protein pancake addict. If there was such thing as PPA (protein pancake anonymous) I would be there, sitting right in front, explaining to others that I can't get out of bed in the morning or start my day without my protein pancakes.

Therefore, because of this addiction, I am always trying to make new, interesting, and freakin' delicious protein pancakes (sticking to the same recipe day after day can become boring). I am always chasing the protein pancake dragon, wanting the next one to be better and tastier than the last.

Today, I have come up with a gluten-free, vegan protein pancake, that I believe to be the best yet. So I just had to share.

This particular pancake is balanced with protein, carbohydrates, and fat so you don't have to eat anything else besides this huge, filling and freakin' AMAZING protein pancake.

I hope tomorrow morning when you wake up, fry up your gluten-free, vegan protein pancake, you too will become so addicted that you'll be sitting right next to me at the next PPA meeting.

      I get it from truenutrition.com and I order the stevia separate from my protein powder, but I am pretty sure that you can order just stevia. You could also mix plain stevia (that you get at the grocery store) and mix it with unsweetened cocoa powder.

      What is the brand of chocolate stevia powder that you buy?

      I think honey or maple syrup would be fabulous options for natural sweeteners (if you so choose to consume these products) and would add some great flavor to the pancake, also these ingredients would help hold the pancake together a little better (they hold, but they tend to be a little fragile. Though, the more oats used the stickier they become and the better they hold).

      This looks amazing! I'm not a fan of Stevia or other sweetners...I would love to try this with honey instead (though obviously this would change the flavor profile a bit). Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Brett.Tesol, these are fantastic even for someone who is not living a vegan lifestyle (which I surely am not, I love my meat, but I love these just as much).

      However, I cannot predict the taste of the pancake if a different vegan protein is used (But I am sure hemp proteins or soy proteins would be delicious, I have just never tried them individually).

      I use Vegan Optimizer Protein Formula (which is a blend of hemp, pea, and soy proteins).

      Loved your enthusiasm in this piece. If it tastes as good as you make it out to be, it is definitely worth a try .... especially as it is healthy too!

      Shared, up and useful.
