Pancakes are something that we all know and love, but sometimes you don't have the time to bring out the pan and make a proper stack of pancakes, so that is where this recipe comes in. It has been a hit over on Instagram, so we had to share it here too: Microwave Blueberry Protein Pancake.
Microwave Blueberry Protein Pancake
This is one that you really need to use the ONE Protein, as it is a whey + casein blend and perfect for this recipe. Regular whey protein will dry out in recipes, especially when making them in the microwave. The 50% casein in the ONE Protein keeps it moist and perfect for this recipe.
Flavor combos are endless
As with most recipes, you can customize this one to however you want. Don't want blueberries and would rather have chocolate chips? Go for it. Want to use Chocolate Brownie protein instead of the vanilla? No problem.
Subbing out ingredients
You can use something else instead of the yogurt, like mashed banana, pumpkin puree or applesauce. The Greek yogurt will keep it with the highest protein, but pumpkin in there could be a great fall twist.
Anyways, we hope you guys enjoy this one as much as we did! Make sure to let us know if you make it and share the recipe with your friends.
