Ingredients for Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Did I mention these pancakes are just 7 ingredients?! Most of my gluten-free pancake recipes use a combination of flours in order to get that fluffy texture, but not these ones! We're using just two flours and a few other ingredients and they honestly have the most amazing texture ever!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Almond flour: I love using almond flour in recipes because it's healthy and it's got an amazing texture. The benefit of using almond flour in this recipe is that it's also high-protein!
  • Protein powder: you can use whatever kind of protein powder you want! Here's the one that I like, but you could do another flavor, another type or whatever you want.
  • Baking powder: the best way to make your pancakes light and fluffy!
  • Cinnamon: I love to add a sprinkle of cinnamon into my pancakes, but this is optional!
  • Eggs: the eggs are another reason why these pancakes are fluffy. But they also are high in protein, so they're giving the pancakes a little protein boost as well.
  • Almond milk: I use unsweetened original, but you can use any type of milk that you want!
  • Blueberries: we need blueberries to make blueberry protein pancakes of course, but you can also swap the blueberries with any other fruit or add-in.
