dairy-free and gluten-free pancakes

Free-from protein pancakes


6 tablespoons gluten-free plain/ all-purpose flour of choice

1 scoop of protein powder of choice

½  tablespoon xylitol or stevia, or other granulated sweetener

½  teaspoon baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 small banana

1 tablespoon non-dairy milk of choice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½  teaspoon coconut oil

berries of choice and maple syrup, or dark/bittersweet chocolate chips, to serve



In a bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, sweetener, baking powder and salt.

Separately, mash the banana until no lumps remain, then add the milk and vanilla extract.

Mix the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients until well combined.

Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat so that it coats the bottom of the pan. Spoon a quarter of the pancake batter at a time into the pan, then flip the pancake over when you see it start to bubble. Cook until golden underneath.

Remove the pancake from the pan and keep it warm while you make the remaining pancakes with the rest of the batter.

Serve with berries and a touch of maple syrup for a healthy option, or dark/ bittersweet chocolate chips for a treat.
