These vegan matcha pancakes are the ultimate lazy weekend breakfast! They’re super easy to make and you don’t need too many ingredients - they get a plant based boost from Pulsin Unflavoured Pea Protein too!
Pulsin Pea Protein is the most versatile protein powder in their range as it is more heat stable making it perfect for adding to hot dishes. It also packs a fairly hefty protein punch at 80% protein, as well as being rich in iron and zinc.It is: Vegan, Non GM and contains no added fillers, sugars or sweeteners, making it a great plant-based alternative to whey protein.
Love Matcha? Pulsin’s Vanilla Matcha Vitality Supershake has 20g of complete plant-based protein per serving and has a perfect blend of vitamins and minerals to support a vegan diet. The blend of Matcha and vanilla, when added with water, make it a great tasting and easily digestible protein drink on the go, which is rich in Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and magnesium. Why not try swapping out the pea protein in this recipe for the Vitality Supershake for a boosted matcha pancake recipe!
