This protein pancake recipe may strike some of you as unusual because instead of oats, it contains quinoa, and instead of whey, it’s made with pea protein powder. I didn’t make it just to be unusual though, I made it to open a window into a couple of ingredients some of you may not have considered.
Let me start with the quinoa: quinoa is a great gluten-free substitute for oats. It’s one of the highest-in-protein grains out there and on top of that it’s really tasty! It has an earthy and nutty tasty to it that is great for both savory but also sweet foods. And pea protein, ah! It’s one of my favorite ingredients for protein baking because it adds bulk to foods and ensures they stay nice and moist. Combined with flavdrops too, it’s absolutely delicious! Don’t believe me?
