Confetti Cake Protein Pancakes
It happened again last week. That thing that rolls around where I turn a little older every year. And as I become older, it becomes apparent that I have to do the math each year. I can no longer keep up with my own age when I’m constantly trying to keep track of how old my own 3 kids are turning.
We have a ritual in our house that on your birthday I make special Birthday pancakes. Everyone gets to partake in said birthday pancakes, so they happen several times a year – yet, it’s still a fun little thing I like to do for my family.
I felt it only appropriate to make myself my own version of birthday pancakes. Yes, since I’m the pancake queen and official pancake flipper in the house, it’s necessary to make my own birthday pancakes.
And although I do indulge in the birthday pancakes I make for my kids sometimes, I already had bigger plans for my mouth to be meeting some cake later in the day – so instead I opted for a healthy confetti cake protein pancake recipe I threw together.
Not that it actually needs to be your birthday to partake in these. I will say, they are ranking up there with some of my favorite pancakes I’ve made to date. Right up there with my Double Stuffed Oreo Pancakes. ♪♫ Happy Birthday to you ♪♫, or whatever. Just make these pancakes.
- 3 Tbsp Cellucor Cor-fetti Whey protein powder
- 2 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
- 1 Tbsp. Pysllium Husks
- 1 Tbsp. Jimmies (aka sprinkles)
- 1/2 Tea. Baking Powder
- 1/3 C. Liquid Egg Whites
- 1/3 C. Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
- Few drops Nunuaturals Stevia Drops or sweetener of choice
- Heat pan or lightly greased griddle.
- Mix dry ingredients except sprinkles in a bowl using a fork to break up any lumps.
- Add wet ingredients and stir well to combine. Let set for 1-2 mins, batter will thicken.
- Now stir in your sprinkles!
- Using a spoon, spoon and spread out pancake batter into 4-5 small/medium size pancakes.
If you don't have Pysllium Husks, you can try replacing that with another 1/2 Tbsp. of coconut flour instead.
The “icing” on my pancakes is simply plain non-fat greek yogurt, thinned with almond milk to the consistency I liked, added a few drops of Nunuaturals Stevia Drops to that as well. Topped with a few more sprinkles.
Confetti cake, funfetti cake, birthday cake – whatever you would like to call it. It’s all the same deliciousness. Sprinkles make me happy.
Are they sprinkles or jimmies?
Do you make birthday breakfasts?
