Most of us have had protein pancakes before, but have you ever tried Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes?
This recipe works so, so well and they’re such a quick and easy way to spice up your pancakes! You can even frost them up and layer them, if you want more of a cake experience. Really though, what better way to chase a big leg day than with an outstanding stack of protein pancakes?
2 medium grated carrots
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup pea protein (you can sub this with vanilla casein if you wish)
3/8 cup quinoa flakes
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Blended together and pancake-fried on a non-stick pan further adding some coconut oil.

This batter is thicker than a regular pancake batter. This is due to the fact that the body of the pancakes came from a combination of pea protein with coconut flour!
The thickness of the batter though, means that these pancakes end up with an extraordinary texture. You won’t regret trying them!
