To Make Pancakes & Waffles:
For Pancakes & Waffles: Make the World’s Most Super-Nutritious & Delicious High-Protein, Nutrient-Dense Pancakes & Waffles!
- Superfood Protein Mix and Superfood Macaroon Mix can both be used to make delicious, super-nutritious and delicious pancakes or waffles very easily. The key is making sure the mix holds together since there’s no flour. Of course you can also add either P3 or P4 to bump up the protein even more.
- Use approx. one cup of Superfood Protein Mix &/or Superfood Macaroon Mix for every 3-4 pancakes you’d like to make; of course it comes in several flavors which allows you to make different flavored pancakes; alternately if you use Naturally Sweetened-Unflavored or Unsweetened-Unflavored versions of Superfood Protein Mix, you have the option of flavoring and sweetening it as desired (there are dozens of options);
- Optionally, to add even more protein you can add ½ to 1 scoop of either P3-Paleo Pumpkin Seed Protein or P4-Peak Performance Plant Protein of either the appropriate flavor or one of the Unflavored versions;
- To help the mix hold together better, we generally recommend combining it with either whole eggs, egg white protein, or some of your favorite pancake mix;
- If using eggs, combine 1-2 eggs per cup of superfood mix; if using pancake mix, you can blend Superfood Protein Mix &/or Superfood Macaroon Mix with the pancake mix using a ratio anywhere from 1:1 to 4:1 (Superfood Mix to pancake mix);
- You can also use a combination of eggs and pancake mix along with your superfood mix if you like;
- Add liquid to thin the mix out and mix or blend; the amount of liquid will obviously depend on the amount of mixes used and whether you used eggs or egg white protein powder, etc.; the liquid can be water or milk (almond or coconut milk recommended);
- The key is to mix or blend it to the right consistency. I prefer thinner (almost crepe-like pancakes) while others prefer thicker pancakes.
- Mix or blend then allow it to sit for 30-60 seconds to get a better idea of the resulting thickness of the pancake batter;
- We prefer making the batter in a blender but a mixing bowl will work fine as well;
- Note that the mix will thicken as it sits so you may need or want to add more liquid and remix as you make pancakes otherwise they will get increasingly thicker.
- Flavor options include: Coconut Almond (my favorite), Chocolate (careful, the cacao will dry them out unless you slightly undercook them), Vanilla, Caramel, Salted Caramel, Gingerbread, or Pumpkin Spice. Of course if you use one of the Unflavored versions, you can add whatever flavoring you’d like.
Here’s my favorite pancake recipe for High Protein Coconut Almond Superfood Pancakes: Add the following to a blender or mixing bowl (I like to use a blender):
- 1 cup of Superfood Protein Mix (Coconut Almond), 1 cup of Superfood Macaroon Mix (Coconut Almond), and 1 scoop of P4 – Peak Performance Plant Protein (Coconut Almond);
- 2-4 eggs (vegans can substitute cold-milled flax or chia seeds; use 1 tablespoon of ground seeds to 3 tablespoons of water and whisk until its gelatinous);
- Add approximately 3-4 oz. of liquid (Almond or Coconut Milk, or water);
- Blend and allow it to set for 30-60 seconds; check the consistency / thickness and add more liquid sparingly to thin it out if too thick.
- Pour onto a preheated griddle or pan and cook as with any pancake; these are a bit denser than what you are likely used to and they will take a tad longer to cook and hold together properly.
- Optional: you can also use some of your favorite pancake mix along with the above if you prefer or need it to help it hold together. Making pancakes, as with most cooking, requires a certain learning curve… it may take a few messed up one’s before you hit on the right ratio of ingredients, cooking temperature & time to make yours come out the way you like them.
Waffles: For waffles use the same mix ratios as above and simply pour it into your waffle iron / maker instead of pouring on a pan or griddle.
