Lemony protein pancakes

I received a giant tub of lemon cheesecake protein powder a couple of weeks back and I knew straight away what I was going to make with it PANCAKES...

The thoughts of drinking it like a shake made my tummy flip so I decided to go down the route I know so well, baking and the likes. Even though I bake for a living I am very aware of what I eat so everything in moderation is the cheesy cliche I live by. Dance like nobody is looking is another but we'll leave my dancing skills for another day.

This is a super quick and convenient recipe and the quantities that I have worked out make the perfect portion for one..

For this recipe you will need:
1/3 cup of ground porridge oats
1/2 cup of protein powder {mine is lemon cheesecake flavour}
1 egg
Almond milk unsweetened
Raw coconut oil
Extra virgin olive oil

Firstly in a food processor blitz 1/3 cup of porridge oats for a few seconds until it turns into a flour like consistsancy.

Next add the porridge oats and 1/2 cup of protein powder in a bowl.

Add in the egg and 2/3 cup of almond milk and whisk together until the batter is lump free. You don't want your batter to be a thick consistsancy as the pancakes will end up quite dense which let's be honest would be gross.

If you feel you need to add another splash of almond milk please do as each brand can differ to the next ...
In a pan add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and a small splash of olive oil, give it a swirl. I used my grannies big silver spoon do pour in the pancake batter as it gave the perfect pancake size. You definitely want something bigger than a dessert spoon but definitely smaller than a ladle.

This mixture makes 5 perfect pancakes...
A mid week treat but without going off the rails ha..
