Even though I adore eggs for breakfast, there are times when I just need a change. Pancakes were one of my childhood favorites! There are many other ketogenic pancake recipes, but this one is a little different from those made with almond or coconut flour.
I made the decision to utilise protein powder rather than bananas, almond, or coconut flour. The outcome is a fluffy pancake that makes me think of my preferred breakfast from my youth. Additionally, the protein powder boosts the protein content of these pancakes!
This is crucial since consuming a large amount of protein in the morning jumpstarts your metabolism. When consumed as your first meal of the day, it has been demonstrated to aid boost muscle mass and calorie burning. Having a boost in between meals is easy with keto protein balls.
This protein pancake recipe is easy to make and offers many of customization options. Just keep in mind that adding anything will raise the recipe’s carbohydrate content.
The downloadable recipe card is located at the bottom of this post and includes a complete list of the ingredients. In order for you to know what to buy, let’s first go through the ingredients in more detail.
Use unflavored whey protein powder to create incredibly fluffy low-carb protein pancakes. A whey protein isolate with no carbohydrates is the best sort. Simply reduce the amount of vanilla extract if you’re using vanilla or chocolate-flavored powder.
Use Swerve, a sugar replacement for confections, as the sweetener. The pancakes will become fluffy as a result! Pancakes made with a granular sweetener will have a gritty texture.
For a delicious flavour, I also added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the pancakes.
Ingredients: two large eggs, beaten; two scoops of unflavored whey protein powder; one cup of heavy whipping cream; two teaspoons of Swerve confectioners’ sugar substitute; one teaspoon each of baking powder, vanilla essence, cinnamon, and nutmeg; and two large eggs.
- Mix the eggs and protein powder together in a sizable mixing dish.
- Add the baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, vanilla extract, and sugar replacement after whisking.
- Whisk the mixture after adding the heavy whipping cream. Add some water if the mixture is too thick to get the consistency of classic pancake batter. If it’s too thin, a little xanthan gum can be added.
