Nut-Free Protein Pancakes {Gluten-Free}

Nut-Free Protein Pancakes {Gluten-Free}

We eat pancakes for breakfast at least once a week. While my family loves our go-to almond and whole wheat flour pancakes, sometimes we just need to mix things up.  Especially when we have friends or family visiting who may have wheat or nut allergies.  These protein packed pancakes are our other favorite.  They are light and fluffy and the chickpea flour adds a creaminess to the pancakes that we really enjoy.

Delicious protein-packed pancakes

The protein in these pancakes comes from greek yogurt and chickpea flour… you will not find any protein powder in these pancakes.  Each pancake contains 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and NO added sugar.  We eat them topped with our favorite fruit and a little maple syrup.  These protein packed pancakes are a healthier, filling breakfast your whole family will enjoy!

This recipe makes 14 5-inch pancakes and the extras refrigerate and freeze well.  Simply reheat in the toaster or microwave.

A note about chickpea flour

Chickpea flour (also known as garbanzo bean flour) can be hard to find in your local grocery store.  I typically order chickpea flour online.  However, I recently learned that chickpea flour can easily be made by grinding chickpeas in a food processor or high powered blender.  Which, by the way, is also how I make my oat flour.
