can i make this protein pancake recipe without protein?
You can certainly make this without the protein, this skillet pancake is just as delicious! Just add a little more flour to get the consistency thicker. I add the protein so I make sure I get enough protein since I feel like I eat too many carbs.
Is Ot Ok To Cook Protein Powder?
Cooking the protein powder won’t ruin any amount of the protein in the powder. Your body will still absorb the same amount of protein, whether you have your protein mixed with water, in a shake, or cooked in a delicious pancake!
Can you reheat protein pancakes?
It is perfectly safe to reheat them in the microwave. Just like any other pancakes, you can keep your unused pancaked for later and just pop them in the microwave and heat up for about 30-60 seconds.
Can you refrigerate protein pancakes?
Just like any other pancakes, they can easily be stored in an airtight container and placed in the fridge. They should last for 5-7 days. You can also be frozen for up to 2 months and simply reheat them when ready.
