Method:

  1. Combine the protein powder and flour in a mixing bowl and whisk briefly to combine.
  2. Add the egg and buttermilk. Whisk thoroughly until smooth. Cover and stand for 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Heat a fry pan to medium high and lightly grease. Pour in about ¼ cup of batter and quickly rotate the pan so that it spreads around and up the sides of the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the top becomes completely matte and the edges start to crisp. Gently flip over and cook for 30 seconds on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter, lightly greasing the pan between batches.
  4. Dollop over your toppings and enjoy!
