Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made these easy and healthy Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes for Earth Fare!]

The 3 ingredient Paleo Pancakes I added to the blog a while back are one of the most popular posts I’ve ever published! 

I love them because they’re made with simple, healthy ingredients and they’re super easy to make.

Make a good thing better

Those pancakes have a decent amount of protein from the egg and almond flour, but I bumped it up even more in this version by adding hemp protein powder! Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes | Reclaiming Yesterday

Why I love hemp 

You could really add any protein powder you love here, but I chose to use hemp protein powder for a few reasons: 

  • It’s less processed than many protein powders – the only ingredient is organic hemp protein!
  • Hemp is super sustainable – the plant is easy to grow with little water, and actually improves soil quality by cleaning up soil pollution. 
  • It has an earthy, nutty flavor I love – I personally really like the flavor of hemp. It’s earthy, but subtle. I have talked to people who don’t care for it though (everyone’s different!) 
  • Hemp is full of health benefits – it has more healthy omega fatty acids and fiber than many other protein powders, and it can improve fatigue and immune health, among other things.

Making the protein pancake batter

Just add everything to a food processor and blend until the batter is nice and smooth!

Depending on your ingredients, you’ll probably need to add a splash of some kind of milk (whatever milk or milk alternative you love works.)

Then, just heat your griddle or cast iron pan, add some butter, ghee, or coconut oil, and get to pouring those pancakes 😉

Topping your pancakes 

You can make this stack of pancakes as plain or as dressed up as you feel like. But just a few little extras take them from yumm to majorly YUMM (and make them worthy of that insta pic.) 

My personal favorite toppers are berries and a swhoosh of cashew butter 😍

Maybe an extra sprinkle of hemp seeds and just a litttle drizzle of maple syrup. 

Perfection.
