Ingredients

  • 2 cup (200 g) oat flour⁣⁣
  • ½ cup (50 g) tapioca flour corn starch would probably work
  • 2 scoop (60 g) vanilla casein protein powder I use the brand Optimum Nutrition but micellar casein will work
  • 1 cup (260 g) liquid egg whites
  • ¼ cup (60 g) mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp (8 g) baking powder
  • 7 tbsp (35 g) cocoa powder
  • cup (360 ml) water

Instructions

For the Pancake Bites

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients until no clumps remain. It is easiest for later if your bowl has a spout on it, not required however. Sift the cocoa powder if needed.
  • NOTE: I'm sure many of you will ask me if you can swap the casein with whey or leave it out all together. No, do not omit the casein and absolutely do not substitute with whey. Your pancake bites will become hockey pucks. A lot of the sweetness comes from the protein powder, do not leave it out. I have attempted this recipe by adding sugar in place of the protein powder and it does not work. The casein adds an airy quality that is not present when only oat flour is used. You can probably use wheat flour and omit the casein but add in some kind of sweetener.
  • Add in the water, egg whites, and 3 tbsp of chocolate chips. Mix until incorporated and your batter is pourable.
  • Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Make sure to coat all sides of the well.
  • If your bowl doesn't have a spout you may find it easiest to transfer the batter into a large ziplock bag to use as a piping bag. Cut off the corner to fill each well of your mini muffin tin.
  • Fill each well about half way with batter. This recipe makes 48 bites. Top each bite with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes.

Storage

  • Once the bites have completely cooled, place them in a ziplock bag and remove as much air as possible. Store in the freezer.
  • Reheat the bites in the microwave and serve with maple syrup.

    If you don’t have casein protein powder, and you use whey, should the measurements be different given how much liquid they absorb?

    1. Josh Cortis

      No, if you don’t have casein then I wouldn’t make these

  2. Travis Tuytjens

    what would you alter if you have a pre mix of pancake powder? I use kodiak cakes for instance when I makes protein waffles, I know it would only alter probably the flour and baking powder mixtures

    1. Josh Cortis

      I don’t know. I would have to actually test it to be sure

  3. Katy Lawson

    How many whole eggs would this be? I can’t get egg whites where I live and it seems a waste to just use the white of whole eggs.
