Gluten-Free Blueberry Protein Pancakes
This super delicious recipe has lots of blueberries! It is dairy-free and is packed with collagen peptides, a heart-healthy source of added protein.
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 large egg at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs. coconut oil, melted (plus more for greasing)
¾ cup gluten-free pancake mix
½ cup Collagen powder (Phoebe likes Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate), divided
2 cups of blueberries
2 tbs. maple syrup, plus more for serving
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the almond milk, egg, vanilla, and coconut oil until combined. Add the pancake mix and ¼ cup Collagen powder. Whisk until smooth, adding a splash or two of almond milk to thin the batter.
Heat a cast iron skillet over a medium-high flame. Lightly brush the pan with coconut oil. Add 1/3 cup of batter to the pan and arrange 7 or more blueberries on top. Cook until the pancake pulls away from the sides of the pan and begins to bubble in the center, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute on the second side. Cook 5 more pancakes the same way for a total of six.
For the Compote
In a small saucepan add 1 ½ cups of blueberries, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and 2 tablespoons of water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the berries release their juices and begin to breakdown into a jam-like consistency, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining collagen and set aside.
Serve the pancakes drizzled with the compote, and garnish with the remaining blueberries. Serve alongside maple syrup and ghee. Enjoy!
