These pancakes have ground pistachios and protein powder to make them the real deal, a meal.
Start with pistachios.
It will take a while, but shell about a half cup.
Then grind them up. I don’t have a food processor, so I used our coffee grinder. It worked quite well.
You could definately use any nut you like for this. Almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts…They will get sort of powdery.
This is what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup ground pistachio nuts
- 1 cup flour
- 1 scoop protein powder (We use vanilla whey protein)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
Whisk the dry ingredients. Add egg and milk and whisk until combined. If the mix is not as thin as you might like, add a Tbs. more milk at a time.
This recipe will make approximately 7 pancakes, depending on the size. I use a half cup measure to pour into the skillet.
I added blueberries to these the other day. Wowza.
