Paleo Protein Pancakes Recipe with Bone Broth Protein
By Dr. Josh Axe
January 8, 2023
Are you ready to make one of the most powerful breakfasts ever in just minutes? It's time to try my Paleo Protein Pancakes. If you enjoy pancakes — or even if you don't, for that matter — you're going to love this morning meal. It also made our list of easy breakfast ideas.
These pancakes are made from almond meal and coconut flour, so they're perfect for those avoiding gluten and starchy carbs while adding healthy fats. The applesauce keeps them light and fluffy and adds a hint of sweetness. But what really makes these protein pancakes is the Bone Broth Protein they're prepared with.
Bone broth's benefits are numerous, from gut support to joint support, which is why my favorite protein powder to use is one derived from bone broth.
These protein pancakes also put the "protein" in pancakes, for each serving delivers 36 grams of protein next to 35 grams of healthy fats and only 19 grams of carbohydrates.
Ready to get this super-healthy breakfast on the table? In a medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, eggs and coconut oil together. Next, stir the almond meal, coconut flour, protein powder and sea salt, and let it sit for five minutes.
Then, in a large skillet, heat the benefit-rich coconut oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, drop the protein pancake batter into the skillet and fry until bubbles have formed on top. That's your cue that it's time to flip those pancakes! Flip and cook for a few more minutes until the other side of the pancake is cooked through.
Top the pancakes with maple syrup and fresh berries, raw honey and cinnamon, or both! Maple syrup is loaded with nutrition but I still recommend you go light on the natural sugars. You can also try to drizzle a little of coconut nectar (similar to molasses), where a little goes a long way, or a monk fruit-sweetened table syrup for no extra carbs.
These make a super simple breakfast or a quick post-workout snack. They pair really well with these high-protein egg bites.
These Paleo protein pancakes also freeze well so you can heat them up whenever you want. Enjoy!
