You can use any protein source for this recipe.
Try adding greek yogurt instead of cheese.
2½ cups (200 grams) rolled oats
½ cup (125 grams) plain or vanilla brown rice protein powder
¼ cup (50 grams) coconut sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
👉TO MAKE THE MIX
Place the rolled oats in a food processor or high-speed blender.
Pulse until finely ground.
Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Mix well before transferring to a mason jar or other airtight container to store until ready to use!
👉TO MAKE THE pancakes (1 serving)
Pour ¾ cup (about 100 grams) of the mix into a mixing bowl and add ¼ cup (60 ml) of liquid (water, milk, etc.).
Stir well until it reaches pancake batter consistency.
You might need to add a little more liquid depending on your protein powder.
Using a tablespoon at a time, add just enough to create a fairly thick batter.
Stir in your mix-ins (berries, nuts, etc.).
Over medium heat, heat a frying pan that’s been coated with oil or nonstick spray.
When it’s hot, add the batter to form your desired size of pancake (silver dollar or one big one!).
Cover the pan and cook for a couple minutes, keeping a close eye on it.
When the edges start to turn brown, flip it over to cook on the other side.
Place pancake(s) on a plate and top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Ingredients: (Serves 6)
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 13 X 9 baking dish with non-stick oil spray Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, nutmeg and basil and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat, lightly mash with a potato masher and set aside to cool.

To assemble the lasagne, spread the remaining tomato puree on the bottom of the baking dish and top with one layer of a lasagne noodle. Arrange the lasagne noodles so that they do not overlap, but there are no big gaps between them.
Pour over one-quarter of the squash and lentil mixture and spread evenly over the lasagne. Evenly scatter over one-third of the baby spinach leaves, followed by one-third of the ricotta mixture.
Repeat steps 5 and 6, to form three layers. Top with a final layer of lasagne sheets and the remaining pumpkin and lentil mixture.
Top with the remaining parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Loosely cover with foil.
Bake in the oven, covered, for 25-30, then remove the foil and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and golden in color. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes.
