GETTING READY

Preheat a griddle pan over medium high heat.

MAKING

In a blender combine the strawberries, lemon juice and honey. Puree until smooth. Set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, coconut milk and vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk the protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir until well combined. Be sure to break up any lumps.

Grease up your griddle with a pat of butter or a spoonful of coconut oil.

In batches, using a ladle, spoon some of the batter onto the griddle. When bubbles begin to form on the top of the pancake, flip and let cook another minute.

SERVING

Serve warm topped with strawberry sauce instead of syrup.
