For more about this recipe: Cooking with Protein Powder
- Combine oats, coffee, and milk in large bowl, and set aside 10 minutes.
- In separate bowl, stir together flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne if using, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Stir egg, butter or coconut oil, and vanilla into oat-coffee mixture. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix gently, and fold in walnuts.
- Heat a greased skillet or griddle pan over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup batter for each pancake into pan, and cook until tops are covered with a few bubbles and edges look dry and cooked, about 2 minutes. Flip, and cook 1 minute more. Keep prepared pancakes warm in oven set to 200°F while you cook remaining batter.
- Stir together yogurt and maple syrup. Serve pancakes topped with dollops of maple yogurt and raspberries.
