Gingerbread Protein Pancakes
Our recipe is a spin on The Protein Chef’s Gingerbread Protein Pancakes. The key to the gingerbread taste is the combination of spices and molasses. You can make do with maple syrup in a pinch, but to get them right, the molasses is a non-negotiable.
You can, however, make some other substitutions based on your preferences. Two whole eggs can be swapped for 1/4 cup of egg whites and you can use a 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt in place of the cottage cheese. If you want to add some extra flavor complexity you can put in 1/4 of a teaspoon of butter extract or 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves or nutmeg if you have them on hand.
As for equipment, you will need a food processor or blender as well as a large frying pan or griddle
