Protein pancakes are the best for those who do sports and for those who want to start the day well with an energetic and fat-free breakfast. A lighter version of the classic American pancakes, but still delicious and full of taste, ideal for the whole family. You will need only egg whites, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, lemon juice and a pinch of baking soda to prepare them. Here's how to prepare them in just a few minutes.
Lightly whisk the egg whites until they become frothy. Add the yogurt and mix everything well, until it blends with the egg whites.
Then add the sifted flour with the baking soda and a few drops of lemon juice, and continue stirring until a smooth batter without lumps is obtained.
Heat a non-stick pan, pour the mixture in the center with a ladle and cook 1-2 minutes per side. Continue to finish the batter and stack the pancakes on a plate, ready to be served.
Once ready you can accompany your protein pancakes with honey, maple syrup, fresh or dried fruit, but also jam.
You can also combine protein pancakes with something savory: they are in fact prepared without the addition of sugar. Their base is therefore neutral and suitable for both sweet and savory food.
Those who prefer can add 1 tablespoon of cane sugar to the dough.
If the batter should be too thick, you can add a little water or milk.
Oat flour can be replaced with type 1 flour, a less refined flour that contains more bran and wheat germ, or you can mix it with coconut or almond flour.
If you want to give your protein pancakes a special flavor, use the Greek yogurt of your choice.
