Hey guys and gals! Going to make this post short and sweet because I already blogged today but I have to tell you all about my brinner (breakfast for dinner) that I shared with my daughter, Chloe! May I present to you (drumroll please) Cotton Candy Cloud Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Protein Pancakes!Â These cotton candy pancakes had the most fascinating taste and texture. It was like eating carnival food but it is healthy-ish!
Ingredients used in the Cotton Candy Cloud Pancakes
Here are some of the ingredients I used. Missing in the photo is the Lorann Cotton Candy Flavor Oil and the candy sprinkles I used. I used up the rest of that oil and now I have bubblegum flavor on the way. Oh my goodness!
I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix for the first time and it won’t be the last time. That mix was amazeballs!
I also used Chef Shamy’s Honey Butter Vanilla Bean and Barleans Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. All of these ingredients added up to a super amazing fluffy cloud-like pancake. I subbed the egg with the butter flavored coconut oil because I was out of eggs. Oh well! It worked out fab in the end.
Extra protein in the pancakes!
Also, for added protein for the milk, we went with BolthouseÂ Farms Unsweetened Protein Plant Milk. An 8 oz serving of that milk has 10g of protein… woohoo!
Gotta have myÂ candy sprinkles!
I mixed some sprinkles into the batter because why not? They are not going to kill me. I think the pancakes themselves are healthy so a little added sugar won’t hurt.
What I loved most about this pancakes were their light and fluffy texture and that is why I am calling them cotton candy clouds. I loved the lightness of these pancakes and they tasted marvelous. I am really proud of the outcome of this recipe I came up with. My only regret is not making enough for both of us, and we had to share this plate. I’m greedy and I wanted my own plate!
What do you enjoy for brinner? Are you more into sweet or more into savory? My brinners are almost always sweet.
