Orange & Passion Fruit Buckwheat Protein Pancakes

Buckwheat protein pancakes are super easy to make. Once the weekend lands, I love to spend some extra time making my breakfast. These pancakes are a luscious treat to fuel your weekend work out or indulge post workout. To get the perfect round shape, I used silicone egg rings from Lakelands. By using the egg rings the pancake mixture made 10 mini pancakes. However, you do not need to use egg rings, you can just pour the batter on the pan and make bigger versions.

Ingredients

6 eggs (3 egg yolks)

¼ Cup Buckwheat Flour

½ Banana

1 Sachet Natvia

¼ Baking Soda

1 Tbsp. Greek Yogurt

1 Tbsp. Milled Flaxseed (optional)

1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein

Orange & Passion Fruit Greek Yogurt

1 small tub Total Fage Greek Yogurt

Juice of Orange

1 Tbsp. Orange Zest

1 Natvia Sachet

2 Passion Fruit

How to Make from Scratch:

  • Preheat Oven 180°
  • Pancake batter – in a large mixing bowl add eggs, buckwheat flour, banana, natvia, baking soda, greek yogurt, flaxseed and whey protein. Use an electric mixer to blend the pancake batter to a smooth, runny consistency.
  • Cooking – in a large frying pan add some coconut oil (1/4 tsp.) place egg rings on the pan, leave some space between them. Pour pancake batter into egg rings using ¼ cup measurement, don’t fill to the top, half fill the egg rings. Once you see bubbles forming remove from pan. Finish cooking in the oven. See next step.
  • Oven- on a lined, greased baking tray, place the egg ring on the tray and gently remove the pancake by gently pushing it out. Give it a quick wipe to remove the excess batter and repeat the process until pancake batter is completely gone.Regularly flip pancakes over in the oven to ensure they are cooked evenly.
  • Orange and Passion Fruit Greek Yogurt- in a mixing bowl add greek yogurt, juice of an orange, orange zest, natvia and passion fruit- stir until combined.
  • Viola – plate up and enjoy.
