Are you ready to make one of the most powerful breakfasts ever in just minutes? It’s time to try my Paleo Protein Pancakes. If you enjoy pancakes — or even if you don’t, for that matter — you’re going to love this morning meal.
These pancakes are made from coconut flour, so they’re perfect for those avoiding gluten. The applesauce keeps them light and fluffy and adds a hint of sweetness. But what really makes these protein pancakes is the protein powder made from bone broth they’re prepared with.
Bone broth’s benefits are numerous, from healing the gut to protecting joints, which is why my favorite protein powder to use is one derived from bone broth (just make sure to use an unflavored variety). Ready to get this super-healthy breakfast on the table? In a medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, eggs and coconut oil together. Next, stir the coconut flour, protein powder made from bone broth and Himalayan salt, and let it sit for five minutes.Then, in a large skillet, heat the benefit-rich coconut oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, drop the protein pancake batter into the skillet and fry until bubbles have formed on top. That’s your cue that it’s time to flip those pancakes! Flip and cook for a few more minutes until the other side of the pancake is cooked through.
Top the pancakes with maple syrup and fresh berries, raw honey and cinnamon, or both! Maple syrup is loaded with nutrition but I still recommend you go light on the natural sugars. You can also try to drizzle a little of coconut nectar, where a little goes a long way.
