These simple oatmeal protein pancakes for one are high in natural protein (almost 12 grams!) and easily customized to fit different tastes.
I'm a bit embarrassed to tell you that although Sam just turned three, he still isn't fully weaned.
He loves his breast milk!
While he's made significant strides, when he's upset or not feeling well, he stubbornly resorts back to wanting mommy's 'milky'.
It's been a bit tiring to find meals that he likes to eat on a consistent basis, but these oatmeal protein pancakes have fit the bill nicely!
They're simple, sugar-free, and fairly high in natural protein making them a pretty good snack or breakfast.
My little diablo!
How to serve them
Personally, I can eat pancakes any time of the day, so these have been known to become my pre-gym snack.
My husband and Natalie are also fans, particularly when they're paired with butter and maple syrup.
I like that these are based on natural protein, as opposed to added protein powder, which I'm not a fan of.
Some variations we like to add include cinnamon, vanilla, and/or blueberries.
These are not meant to be super fluffy, but they are soft and moist, and I really enjoy them!
Oatmeal Protein Pancakes for One
- ¼ cup oat flour
- ¼ cup rolled or quick oats
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- couple dashes sea salt
- 1 large egg
- 2-3 Tablespoon milk of your choice
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. until well combined.
- Mix in the wet ingredients, adding enough milk to make a pourable batter.
- Let the batter sit for a few minutes while you heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Add a little butter or coconut oil to the skillet and let it melt and start to bubble.
- Add the batter into the pan, giving each pancake room to cook evenly.
- Let cook until the perimeter begins to set and you see a few bubbles form on the surface.
- Flip and cook the other side.
- Repeat with all batter (I use a tablespoon measure for mine and get about 8-9 small pancakes).
- Top as desired and enjoy!
FYI: The protein if using skim milk is 13.2 grams.
