Serves 4 15 minute prep time

By Sandi Irving, Nimmo Bay Chef 

In the midst of many incredible meals at the Outpost this year, these protein pancakes stood out as a clear favorite. Requested every morning, these plant-based powerhouses were a nourishing and warming way to start our days.

Developed by Sandi Irving, the chef at Nimmo Bar, these are hands down the best protein pancakes we’ve tasted yet.
