Cinnamon Bun Protein Pancakes Recipe



  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients using a whisk.
  3. Pour the wet ingredient into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. The mix should be thick and lumpy, similar to traditional pancake mix. Do not overmix!
  4. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Heat your pan over medium heat.
  6. Add a little coconut oil to the pan, then pour in half of a ladle of pancake mix. Cover pan.
  7. Cook for 3 minutes. Uncover the pan and if the pancake is bubbly, add the cinnamon in a circular design.
  8. Flip the pancake, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute.
  9. Uncover and serve!

Cinnamon Bun "Glaze" (Optional)

  1. Combine all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl. Mix.
  2. Head your mix in the microwave for 1 minute. Mix, then head again for 30 seconds. 
  3. If the mix isn't liquidy, mix and heat again for another 30 seconds. 
  4. Either serve on pancakes hot and liquidy or wait for the glaze to cool off and thicken, then spread it on the pancakes. 
  5. Top with the roasted pecans (optional).
