Rice Protein Pancakes

I want to make sure your pancakes are a total success, here are some simple tips:

  1. Mix the dry and liquid ingredients in separate bowls first. Why? this helps ensure even distribution of all ingredients and prevents over-mixing.

  2. Do not over mix! Too much mixing will result in flat, rubbery pancakes with no room for air bubbles.

  3. Let the batter rest. Resting the pancake batter does two things, first of all, it gives the flour time to hydrate and lumps to dissolve. While the batter is resting, the liquid helps release some of the starches and proteins in the flour that will give the pancakes lift without making them tough. Second, the leavening has time to evenly distribute throughout the batter, bubbles of air are ultimately responsible for puffing the pancakes as they cook.
