Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

One of my favorite meals is breakfast. I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day. These protein pancakes are high in protein and carbs and are great for a pre or post workout meal.  You can put different toppings and to change the macro nutrients. My personal favorite is caramel syrup, bananas and pecans.

  • 1/4 Cup Gluten Free Bisquick
  • 1 scope Quest Protein Powder (I have used both Multiple Purpose Mix and Peanut Butter in this recipe)
  • 1/4 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Coconut Oil Spray
  1. Heat pan and spray with coconut oil.
  2. If using a 12 in pan pour entire batter in pan. If using a smaller pan then pour 1/2 of the batter in the pan.
  3. Wait until the edges look dry so when you flipped the pancake it doesn’t fall apart.
  4. Cook second side for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Once done top with fresh fruit or other toppings.

Note: You can use this batter for pancakes or waffles.
