With nearly 16 grams of protein per pancake, these Apple Protein Pancakes are a delicious addition to your weight loss or fitness goals. Protein from eggs is joined by our new Organic Whey, as well as our Collagen Peptides for a balanced amino acid combo. Sweetened with just applesauce means you can enjoy these guilt-free (or add a bit of warmed apple slices and maple syrup, if it’s that kind of morning).
Apple Protein Pancakes
½ c. light coconut milk
1 c. applesauce (look for no sugar added)
3 tbsp. softened butter, ghee, or coconut oil
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 tbsp. coconut flour
4 scoops Vital Proteins Organic Whey Protein
2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Large pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. sea salt
Optional for topping: warm apple slices and maple syrup
Add the eggs, coconut milk, applesauce, butter, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract to a large blender. Blend on high until very smooth.
Add the coconut flour, Whey Protein, Collagen Peptides, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt to the blender. Blend again to incorporate. Stop to scrape down the sides and allow the coconut flour to be fully absorbed. Blend again on high until you have a smooth and thick batter.
Heat a wide skillet over medium to medium-low heat (the pan used may cause this to vary slightly). Grease lightly with additional butter and drop the batter into pancake shapes, 4-6″ in size. Spread the batter out slightly and allow the pancakes to cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the edges begin to brown. Flip and cook until browned on the other side.
Remove to a cooling rack for 3-5 minutes before serving. Repeat with the remaining batter.
