Protein Pancakes with Chickpea Flour

Hello! I’m a mess because I thought it was Thursday yesterday and this morning I thought it was Tuesday?! I think the lack of sleep is catching up with my brain.

After I taught boot camp I went for a 4 mile run with some speed work. 1 m w/u, 2 800s, 1 fast, 2 800s. Didn’t keep track of splits, just wanted to speed it up.IMG_4872 (800x600)

It is FREEZING here this morning! I had to bust out my “muppets” gloves. Just call me Grover.IMG_4882 (800x600)

I came home super HUNGRY and quickly threw together pancakes. I wanted to try making a high protein, wheat free version so I made – Chickpea Flour Pancakes! Or Chickcakes for short.IMG_4900 (800x533)

Unfortunately, the first batch was a disaster. I think you really have to grease the pan well for these. IMG_4887 (800x533)

I used butter on the second pancake and it was a success!IMG_4891 (800x533)

Chickpea Flour Pancakes:

  • 1/2c egg whites
  • 1/4c garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 Tb. cottage cheese
  • dash: salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon

Mix. Grease pan with butter. It’s okay, 1 pat only has 36 calories and you end up using half of that. Cook. Eat.

*Tip: We keep a stick of butter in the freezer and just run it over a hot pan to grease. image(image source)

Happy Pancake Day to me SmileIMG_4893 (800x533)

    I love pancakes but I hardly ever make them because I seem to always burn them. So I save them for eating when I go out and make waffles at home. Your pancakes always look fantastic.

    I’ve never tried chickpea flour but love chickpeas and hummus so if that means anything, I’m sure I’d love them in a floured version! Wonder if it would be good as a baked pancake?!

    Whenever I see chickpea flour, I will always laugh. About 8 years ago when I was in high school that is the only flour I had left and I made cookies with them for my advisor and they turned green!
