Cauliflower Protein Pancakes

Who knew pancakes could be low carb AND delicious? These Cauliflower Protein Pancakes are packed with flavor, filling, fluffy, and take less than 10 minutes to make!

1/2 Head (200g) Fresh Cauliflower
1/4 Cup (28g) Coconut Flour (or Almond Flour)
1 Scoop (38g) Protein Powder (I prefer Labrada 100% Vanilla Whey)
1 Tablespoon Sweetener
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
9 Tablespoons Egg Whites
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract *Optional

1. Add all of your ingredients into either a really powerful blender or food processor
2. Blend/process everything together until smooth
3. Turn a burner on medium heat and coat a pan with some non-stick cooking spray
4. Pour your mix in and cook each side for around 2-3 minutes

Frozen cauliflower will have too much water content…USE FRESH CAULIFLOWER!
Add in some cocoa powder if you’re using chocolate protein!
