I've been working on pancake recipes for as long as I've been working as a nutritionist! I love pancakes - preferably the traditional Scottish ones, but let's be honest - they're not the healthiest! I've made a few protein based pancake recipes before (you'll find the vanilla ones in Cut the Crap - No Bullshit Cookery 2) but I wanted to make a new recipe that was completely free from dairy and whey based protein powders. Mostly because I'm intolerant to whey protein - so you could say these are selfish pancakes. The protein powder I used for this recipe is from Pulsin - it is their pea protein blend which is totally plant based and is unflavoured, which suits this recipe perfectly.
