1- quick oats should also work fine; do not use steel cut oats
2- Protein powder- I highly recommend using a flavored whey protein powder (like vanilla). Vegan (pea protein) protein powder does not have the same texture or flavor, and needs to be thinned out with some milk.
3- I recommend refined coconut oil; you may swap for olive oil or butter
Though these pancakes are best served fresh, you can cook them ahead and store:
  • fridge- in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
  • freezer- separate pancakes with squares of wax or parchment paper; store in an air tight container or freezer bag for up to 1 month.
