♥Pink Power Protein Pancakes ♥

Pink power protein pancakes!
"Use one scoop of whey protein..."

The scoop factor... So there seems to be  no standard of "scoop" out there.  This can be frustrating,  I know. But I will be making a conscious effort to make sure I let you know how much my scoop is. Then there's the liquid to add, that's not always standard either. Because every powder is different it reacts to liquid differently. So always start at the suggested amount and go from there. No matter what recipe you are using there's always a bit of a learning curve. There will be a few batches that are just down right wrong. But with practice you will get the right consistency for your protein powder. Then you will go use a different powder, and mess it up. It just happens. 

So the second holidays are over, we jump right into Valentines *groan*. But, I am a lover and a Fighter... so I couldn't resist the epic cheesiness of Pink Pancakes! Why not. You love yourself right? You love your body right? You want to treat it right.... right? 
Well regardless of your answers, they're strawberry, relax

 3 TBS coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 scoop of strawberry whey protein (mine measures approx. 1/4 cup, and 1 Tbs)
3 egg whites
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or to pour able consistency)

Heat pan, or skillet, with oil. Healthy choice: coconut oil, or coconut oil or olive oil spray. Bring down heat to medium. Cook first side until it starts to bubble (about 2 minutes), or you can lift it to flip, and lightly brown. Other side will take less than 2 minutes. 
 This made me about 3 pancakes, none were same size... because that's how I roll.
