Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, and Low Carb!
- 2 scoops of BariatricPal Protein ONE: Cinnamon Swirl, firmly packed
- 3 tbsp of Coconut Flour
- 1 tsp of Baking Powder
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp of Organic Flax and Chia Blend
- 1/3 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
Cinnamon Bun "Glaze"
- 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
- 6 oz of Cream Cheese
- 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 1 tsp sweetener of choice
- 1 scoop BariatricPal Protein One Cinnamon Swirl OR BariatricPal Protein One French Vanilla, firmly packed
- Toasted Pecans to taste (I used 1 handful)
- Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients using a whisk.
- 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!
- Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
- Heat your pan over medium heat.
- Add a little coconut oil to the pan, then pour in half of a ladle of pancake mix. Cover pan.
- Cook for 3 minutes. Uncover the pan and if the pancake is bubbly, add the cinnamon in a circular design.
- Flip the pancake, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute.
- Uncover and serve!
Cinnamon Bun "Glaze" (Optional)
- Combine all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl. Mix.
- Head your mix in the microwave for 1 minute. Mix, then head again for 30 seconds.
- If the mix isn't liquidy, mix and heat again for another 30 seconds.
- Either serve on pancakes hot and liquidy or wait for the glaze to cool off and thicken, then spread it on the pancakes.
- Top with the roasted pecans (optional).
