Pancake Batter

  • 2/3 cup vanilla protein powder I use vegan or plant based
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil you can use avocado oil

Optional Toppings

  • plain Greek yogurt
  • maple syrup
  • berries


  • Heat pan over low-medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking oil.
  • Whisk all pancake ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Unlike typical pancake batter, whisk until all lumps are gone. With gluten free batters, the more whisking the better!
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake (makes 16 pancakes). Cook until the top of the pancakes have some bubbles and the edges are beginning to set. Flip pancakes and make sure each side is a golden brown.
  • Once all the pancakes are made eat immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days. The pancakes retain their soft and fluffy texture the first 24 hours, but start to dry out after that.
  • Serve with plain Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and berries.
