Hemp Flax Pancakes: think multi-grain

I wasn't going to post today but after making these for breakfast I really felt I had no choice. These taste very similar to a multi-grain or buck wheat pancake but are much healthier for you! I use pure Hemp protein powder, which is my new favorite thing! Chock-full of fiber, omega 3 and essential fatty acids, it is a real power house food. If you don't have hemp protein powder (I'm betting you don't) don't sweat it! You can use your favorite protein powder, just be mindful of the flavor you're using and I would not recommend using egg white protein. Also, these are super allergy friendly: no dairy, gluten, grains, or sugar...just smiles!

2 egg whites
1 tablespoon Hemp protein powder
1 tablespoon Flax meal
1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Stevia (you can adjust based on your taste)
1/8 teaspoon Baking powder
1/8 teaspoon Baking soda

Place egg whites in bowl and beat until light and fluffy (before they are stiff). Add hemp powder and flax and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix well-- then let sit for about 5 minutes so the flax can soften. Warm and grease your griddle and bring to medium heat. Pour silver dollar size amount of batter into pan and cook for about minute and flip. These go great with maple syrup, jam, nut butters or whipped cream. I made a spread with equal parts yogurt, almond butter and butter and it was DE-lightful.
