High Protein, High Fiber Chickpea Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce
1 cup almond milk
2/3 cup chickpea flour
1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 medium banana
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tsp maple syrup
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
Combine pancake ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Use a 1/4 cup measure to pour pancake mix onto skillet. Cook for 2 minutes until bubbles appear on top and pancakes look set, flip and cook for 1 minute. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining mixture.
Meanwhile, place blueberries and maple syrup in a small non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until blueberries release some liquid and begin to soften. Remove from heat.
To serve, divide pancakes between plates. Top with yogurt and spoon over blueberry compote to serve.
Quick Note: If you use the listed almond milk amount, the batter will be very thick, not quite pourable and will result in thick, fluffy and dense pancakes. You may have to scoop it into the pan and use a spoon to spread it out a bit. If you prefer thinner pancakes or crepes, you can add more almond milk/water to adjust the thickness of the batter.
It may take some experimenting with the recipe to find the liquid amount that works for you. It may also vary from brand to brand of chickpea flour.
