Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

Cinnamon Swirl



  • Add the dry ingredients to a medium bowl and mix well with a whisk.
  • Add the wet ingredients to another medium bowl, mix well, and pour wet mixture on top of the dry mixture. Mix to combine well and allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes, so the almond flour hydrates.
  • Meanwhile, make the cinnamon swirl by adding the maple syrup to a small bowl with the cinnamon and mix. Add three tablespoons of the resting pancake batter to the cinnamon syrup mixture, along with one teaspoon tapioca flour, then combine well. Add the mixture to a ziploc bag, and set aside.
  • Make the glaze by adding one scoop of FlavCity protein to another small bowl and whisk it with just enough milk to make a glaze that can be drizzled. Set aside.
  • Add the pancakes to a preheated greased pan and cook for 30 seconds. Cut a tiny corner off the ziploc bag with the cinnamon swirl mixture and carefully pipe it in a spiral pattern beginning in the center of each pancake working your way out to the edge. Then, cover the pan with a lid. Once the pancakes are golden brown on the bottom, flip and cook them for 15 seconds on the swirl side. Then remove from the pan and stack them on a plate.
  • Drizzle with protein glaze and enjoy!
