Let’s chat for a minute about how these Holiday Nog Protein Pancakes make me feel all the holiday feels! I mean, can you feel that?! That Christmas cheer? I think even Mister Grinch himself would think these pancakes are joyful AND triumphant!
These Holiday Nog Protein Pancakes will warm your hearts and fill your bellies leaving you wanting more (and good news, you can make more!). Let the holiday pancake feasting begin.
I feel like pancakes are one of those things that just can’t be overdone. Who doesn’t love a warm stack of pancakes?! But perhaps the best part of these particular pancakes, other than they are actually soft, fluffy, and undeniably delicious, is they contain simple ingredients and one special ingredient in particular… Ripple Foods Vanilla plant-based protein powder!
So a little look behind the making of these pancakes- about halfway through making them I realized I didn’t have any maple syrup. Gasp! I like to use maple syrup in a lot of my recipes as the sweetener and I always feel like I am out of it! So I improvised and made my own cranberry syrup, which was kind of a blessing in disguise because I really think it was the perfect way to top off these Holiday Nog Protein Pancakes. And because there is no added sugar to the batter, I was cool with it.
I also had some sugared cranberries layin’ around- it seems I’ve been garnishing a lot of my holiday recipes with them, so I highly recommend you make some and then just have them readily available for your impromptu holiday pancake excursions. Let’s take a closer peek at the ingredients included in these Holiday Nog Protein Pancakes!
☆ gluten-free all purpose flour
☆ Ripple Foods vanilla protein powder
☆ dairy-free holiday nog
☆ coconut oil
☆ almond milk
☆ baking powder
☆ apple cider vinegar
☆ pinch of salt
☆ cranberry syrup and sugared cranberries
Pretty simple, eh?! They are super easy to make as well. We’re talking less than 30-minutes!
Now I want to take a minute here to talk about why I love Ripple Foods protein. Other than the fact it’s 100% dairy-free, vegan, nut-, soy- and gluten-free, it’s packed with 20g of protein per scoop, 100 calories and 30% of your daily value of iron, and contains NO added sugar. There are so many protein powders that are loaded with sugar to make it “taste good” and to me, that kind of counteracts the benefit… Ripple sure isn’t lacking in flavor, and completes this pancake recipe with a hint of vanilla and lots of nutrients!
