Blueberry & Cocao Pancakes – Grain Free
Really just because you can never have to many pancake recipes….
Best thing about these Blueberry & Cocao Pancakes are that they are a super filling, low carb, high protein, grain and refined sugar free healthy start to the day! No Guilt Pancakes!! How can you not love them??
I needed a bit of a protein hit yesterday morning and was about to throw together a quick protein smoothie before deciding on protein pancakes instead. The ingredients are very similar, however a completely different texture and taste to mix it up!
Unlike a lot of grain free pancake recipes, these are quite light and fluffy and stay together – hurray!!!
I used Quest vanilla protein powder for these Blueberry & Cocao Pancakes and adapted one of their recipes for inspiration. Thanks Quest 🙂

1 scoop of vanilla Quest protein powder or brand of choice
