These are a wonderful sweet treat, but full of protein! Batter will be more runny than a typical pancake. For thicker pancakes, you can add a little more protein powder or any type of nut or coconut flour. For a good travel option, put the batter in a muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350 or until center is cooked through. These have a crepe like texture and are very light, but filling.

Coconut oil spray for pan
