  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon protein powder vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • In a small bowl, combine the egg whites, applesauce, and almond milk and mix well. In a second bowl, combine the protein powder, oats, coconut flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Gradually add to the egg mixture and mix just until combined. Gently fold in the diced apple.
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat. Drop 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil onto the hot skillet. Once melted, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan.
