What’s good about it?

Adding the protein powder is an easy way to increase the overall protein content which helps aid muscle recovery after exercise and stabilise blood sugar levels.


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and process to form a thick batter. If the batter is too thick add a little more milk alternative.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan until hot. Spoon in a ladle of the batter and swirl around the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges turn golden. Flip over and cook for a further minute on the other side.
  3. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with fruit and coconut yogurt if wished
