  3. Cut parchment paper out into pancake sized sheets, and place them in-between the pancakes, stacking the protein pancakes 2-4 per stack (depending on how many you will have per serving).
  4. Place the stacks into a freezer bag and freeze. Will hold in the freezer for 3 months.
  5. Discard the parchment paper and reheat the healthy protein pancakes in the microwave for 1 minute, in the toaster oven on toast for 3 minutes, or in a warm oven.

  3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to the lowest setting (200 degrees or “warm”) and place a baking sheet in the oven.
  4. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat, and spray with olive oil.
  5. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop scoop pancakes onto the hot skillet or griddle.
  6. Cook the pancakes until they bubble on top, about 45-60 seconds. Flip and cook them for just a few more seconds on the second side.
  7. Transfer the cooked pancakes to the warm cookie sheet in the oven while you work on the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve warm with your favorite toppings.
