Ingredients

  • 12 g vanilla casein protein powder
  • 20 g oat flour
  • 17.5 g cornstarch
  • 1 g baking powder
  • 40 g milk
  • 15 g egg whites
  • 3 g melted butter
  • 12 g chocolate chips

Instructions

  • NOTE: The hydration of this dough is very important. Precise measurements are required. Because of this, I can only recommend making this with metric weights. Get a digital scale.
  • Mix together the casein, oat flour, cornstarch, baking powder in a bowl until well incorporated.
  • Add in the egg whites and milk. Mix to form a dough
  • Place the dough in the fridge/freezer for 10 minutes until it has solidified to a place where it is workable.
  • Place down two pieces of parchment and spray lightly with oil. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/8”-1/4” thick.
  • Clean the edges of the rectangle and make sharp cuts down the sides. Cut the dough into right triangles to form the shapes. Reroll out the scraps and repeat.
  • Spread melted butter over the top and add the chocolate chips.
  • Roll the fat end of the triangle over the small end to form the roll.
  • Place onto a sheet pan/cast iron and bake at 350F for 4-8 minutes. I used the air fryer so it doesn’t take as long. The oven will probably take closer to the 8 minute mark. Just watch it and pull them out when browned.
  • Cream cheese frosting on top is a nice touch as well.

    Okay so, I couldn’t get the right consistency for the dough. I weighed everything and didn’t work for me. Thats okay, because just poured the mixer into a pan and it made the BEST protein pancake. I liked it so much I made another for a snack and will be eating them for dinner.

    Is whey and casein interchangeable in this recipe?

      1. George

        Any specific casein that you use ie hydrolyzed vs micellar?
