3Fold the batter together gently and set aside for 5 minutes.

4Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium to high heat.

5Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan at a time. Cook until bubbles form on the top surface, then flip over to cook on the other side, cooking for about 3 – 4 minutes per side.

As with all pancake batter, leaving small lumps is fine. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes before cooking. If your batter is too thin, add tablespoons of protein powder until you reach the right consistency. Too thick? Even it out with tablespoons of milk.
