Meal Prepped Protein Pancakes
- 4 scoops (125 g) vanilla whey protein
- 4 scoops (125 g) vanilla casein protein
- 1⅔ cups (200 g) oat flour
- ¾ cup (100 g) cornstarch or tapioca flour
- 1½ tsp (6 g) baking powder
- 1 tsp (4 g) baking soda
- 2½ cups (600 g) liquid egg whites or whole eggs, just match the weights
- 3⅓ cups (750 g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 cup (240 g) water
- Mix all the dry ingredients together so no clumps are present. NOTE: I have tested this with only whey protein and it doesn't turn out. Only casein will work but you may need more water in the batter. The 50/50 blend of protein is best.
- Add in the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. The amount of water required may be variable depending on the protein you use. You need the batter to be pourable but not too watery. Let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken up a bit for fluffier pancakes.
- Heat your griddle or skillet over medium heat and spray with oil. Add the batter and cook for a 2-3 minutes each side or until browned and set.
- Continue working your way through the batter until all of it has been used up and your pancakes are cooked. As your pancakes come out of the skillet, allow them to cool on a wire lined sheet pan.
- Once all of your pancakes have cooked and cooled to room temperature. Align them on your sheet pan and place them into the freezer uncovered until they have frozen solid.
- Transfer the pancakes to the Zwilling Fresh & Save zip top bags and use the vacuum pump to remove the air. If you try to vacuum seal the pancakes before they have frozen solid, they will get smushed. If you don't plan to vacuum seal, you don't need to flash freeze them.
- I was able to make 35 individual pancakes from this recipe. The nutritional information is per each pancake with no toppings.
