Dessert for brek? I’m always down for that.
Now I am well aware of all the protein pancake recipes floating around the internet, and I have tried most of them! I have really struggled to find a gluten free recipe that both tastes nice and holds its form well. All too often the little pancakes shrink to become dry and flat when they are taken off the heat.
I experimented a lot to get the final recipe below. I think that it has a really nice balance of flours, including carbs, proteins and fats in the mix, and the final product holds its shape really nicely. Not to mention it tastes like a moist, berrylicious, flapjack bomb, and keeps you full for so long!
