Vanilla Almond Protein Pancakes

One of my favorite extracts to use is almond extract. Love the nutty, warm flavor! These were so fluffy :)

Also, don't let the cauliflower scare you! It makes the pancakes more moist and cake-like! You can omit if you don't have any, but I highly recommend it.

                              

Vanilla Almond Protein Pancakes 

3/4 scoop Vanilla protein powder (I use Cellucor Whipped Vanilla)
2 tablespoons oatmeal
2 tablespoons coconut flour 
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 stevia packet 
1/3 cup riced cauliflower 
3 tablespoons egg whites 
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt 
1/3 cup almond milk 
Splash of almond extract (about 1/2 teaspoon)

Directions: 

1. Preheat a large non stick pan over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray. 
 2. Place cauliflower in a food processor and finely chop. Place in a bowl and microwave 40 seconds.
3. Add all ingredients including the cauliflower to your food processor. Blend until smooth.
4. Add pancake batter to your pan by the spoonful. Cook until edges set and then flip. Be patient! They are thick and take longer than regular pancakes. Once you flip, cook another 3-4 minutes on the other side. Serve with your favorite toppings/fillings!
