Lupin Protein Pancakes

Lupin Protein Pancakes
(GF), Serves 2, Per serve 305 calories, 28g Protein, 14g Fat, 11g Carbs, 11g Fibre

Ingredients

  • 60g    lupin flake (1/2 cup)
  • 200g  smooth ricotta – low fat version preferable
  • 100g  (3)egg whites 
  • 2 tsp   sugar
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tsp   vanilla
  • 1 tsp   GF baking powder (or normal)
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • a little bit of stevia (1/4 tsp) is optional

Method

  • Place all ingredients except butter in a bowl and blend well together (1 minute with a hand mixer is recommended).
  • Let the batter rest for 20-30 mins (The batter can be left in a fridge overnight in fact it works better this way)
  • Place a large non-stick frying pan (~30cm) on low heat and warm a dollop of butter, let it melt, then take the frying pan off the heat and spoon batter (~3 heaped tablespoons) into the pan and gently spread the batter into thinner discs (~10cm) using the back of the spoon (lupin batter is thicker than traditional pancake mix).
  • Place frying pan back on the heat (low-medium) and cook on one side until it bubbles and gently flip over and cook the other side.
  • Lupin pancakes hold more moisture and therefore will take longer to cook, so it is important to monitor the heat as to not burn them.
  • Dust with a small amount of icing sugar while still warm and serve.
