Cafe Mocha Protein Pancakes

These pancakes had the perfect amount of coffee flavor . I layered these with stevia sweetened Greek yogurt and topped them with Wild Friends Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter (one of my top three favorite nut butters!). Perfect. 

                                     

Cafe Mocha Protein Pancakes

Ingredients:

3/4 scoop Cafe Mocha protein powder (I used Dymatize)
1/3 cup riced cauliflower 
2 tablespoons oatmeal 
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet stevia
1/4 teaspoon coffee extract
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt 
3 tablespoons egg whites
2-3 tablespoons almond milk 

Directions:

1. Cook cauliflower rice in the microwave for 40 seconds.
2. Grind oats into oat flour with a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients (includig the cauliflower!) and blend well. 
3. Heat a large, nonstick pan over medium high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Make sure the pan is hot!
4. Add the batter by the spoonful. Flip when the edges set and small bubbles start to form. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
