WHOLE GRAIN AND COCONUT PROTEIN PANCAKES

Ingredients: 

  • 1/3 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Whole Foods Market vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup lowfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lowfat (1%) milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, plus more for cooking pancakes

Method: 

In a small bowl, whisk together sorghum flour, coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, milk, honey and coconut oil. Stir in flour mixture.   

Heat a heavy skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Brush with coconut oil. Working in batches, pour batter by scant 1/4 cupfuls onto the pan. Cook until pancakes are browned underneath and tops begin to set, about 4 minutes; pancakes will be difficult to flip if tops aren’t a little firm, so don’t rush. Flip pancakes and cook until other side is browned, about 3 minutes more. Lower heat and brush the pan with more oil if necessary between batches. Completely cooled pancakes can be stored in a freezer-safe resealable plastic bag and frozen up to 3 months; reheat frozen pancakes in a toaster or a 300°F oven.
