Easy Cauliflower Protein Pancakes

1 Stack371 cals

I had a request to make some cauliflower pancakes and I don’t know why it’s taken me so long but today is the day we’re going to satisfy that request!

These Cauliflower Pancakes are packed with protein, only take 7 ingredients or less to make, and have less than 15 grams of net carbs!

The most important part? They actually taste like pancakes.

All you need for this one is either a food processor or good blender (I put mine below). If you don’t have at least a decent blender, you may risk burning out your motor (so be careful!).

Oh, and don’t ask me how I know this either.

You’re gonna start by adding in around half a head or 200 grams of fresh cauliflower. If it’s not fresh, it’s almost guaranteed to have too much water in it for the recipe to work.

Follow your cauliflower with 1/4 cup of coconut flour, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 tablespoon of a sweetener, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 9 tablespoons of liquid egg whites or 3 large egg whites, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.

Process or blend everything together until smooth.

As long as there’s no huge pieces of cauliflower floating around, you’re good to go.

Make Your Cauliflower Pancakes

Take out a stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat your pan with some non-stick cooking spray.

Pour your mix in once it heats up.

You should cook each side of your cauliflower pancakes for around 2 minutes. Repeat until your mix or appetite is gone!
