Cinnamon Graham Cracker Protein Pancakes

Pretty sure the picture says it all. FLUFF. My usual ingredients with Cinnamon Graham Cracker whey protein by Optimum Nutrition. Delicious, but if you don't have that flavor, use whatever whey protein powder you like! I always buy my protein powders from bodybuilding.com. If you buy them anywhere else, your paying WAY too much! 

                   

Cinnamon Graham Cracker Protein Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/3 cup riced cauliflower 
1 level scoop Cinnamon Graham Cracker whey protein (I used Optimum Nutrition. If you don't have this, use another flavor!)
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 medium banana (50 grams)
3 tablespoons egg whites 
1 tablespoon almond milk
1/2 teaspoon butter extract (optional if you don't have any) 
1 packet stevia
5 drops liquid stevia

Directions:

1. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray. 
2. Cook the cauliflower in the microwave for 40 seconds (I "rice" mine by putting it into a food processor until finely chopped).
2. Add all ingredients (oatmeal through the stevia) on a food processor. Add cauliflower last (so it has a chance to cool down a little).
3. Blend until smooth, do not over mix. 
4. Cook your pancakes!
