Ciccio pancake

Ciccio pancakes are a perfect protein breakfast for the whole family: prepared with oat flour and without sugar they are really delicious.

The ciccio pancakes, as the name suggests, are pancakes inspired by the classic American recipe. The difference between the two preparations, however, lies mainly in the thickness and the ingredients used. The fat pancakes in fact go crazy on social media, especially among those who want to fill up on protein and limit the amount of refined sugars in their diet.

For this reason, the most common versions are those of the ciccio pancake fit, prepared with oat flour , often vegetable milk or Greek yogurt. In appearance they resemble real cakes, tall and soft, but the taste is decidedly different, rustic and not very sweet due to the use of liquid sweeteners. But let’s find out together how to prepare these unusual pancakes.
