Stevia Gluten-Free Protein Pancakes with Berry Syrup | SweetLeaf®

Ingredients:

Pancake Batter

  • 1/4 tsp. SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 2 Tbsp. flax meal
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened

Berry Syrup

  • 1 tsp. SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
  • 12 oz. blueberries
  • 1/4 cup and 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt

Directions:

Lightly oil a flat griddle and heat over medium heat.

Sift the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and almond milk.

Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to form a batter. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Syrup
In a small saucepan, combine blueberries with 1/4 cup of water and the vanilla extract. Cook on medium heat until the fruit is softened and releases its juice.

In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener, then add the 3 tablespoons of water and mix to create a slurry.

Add the slurry to the berries and stir continuously until the mixture has thickened.

Remove the berries from the heat, place in a blender, and blend until smooth. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer.

Top gluten-free pancakes with berry syrup and enjoy! Store any remaining syrup in an airtight container and refrigerate.
