Pancake Casserole? Yes please!
If you missed my pancake post go check it out here.
I really like these pancakes as a treat or part of a meal but cooking pancakes takes forever.
So I baked them! My new way to have pancakes means more time and everything is hot at the same time!
When you turn pancakes into a casserole its a lot easier to hide more veggies in it.
I have hemp protein powder which I use more like a supplement then a protein shake. The hemp gives a good amount of iron, Magnesium, zinc, branched chain amino acids, and a high amount of fiber. The collagen peptides have many benefits as well. Collagen peptides help skin, nails, joints, and bones. Collagen peptides have many amino acids as well.
Using hemp and collagen peptides also mean using less cassava in this recipe which can be expensive. If you can't do cassava do a extra scoop of hemp and collagen till its a thick consistency. Also they are all dairy free which is great for those of us who don’t digest it well.
You can use another kind of protein powder but it will change the taste and constancy a little.
1 cup baked butternut squash
3 scoops hemp protein powder(Nutiva)
2 scoops collagen(vital proteins)
1/4 cup cassava
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp flaxseeds (mine were whole you can use ground)
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup of shredded beats(mine were from failed beat kvass)
(personally I like them without the herbs/spices or a pinch of rosemary)
Pre-heat to 350F
I used squash I had baked before see here for baking ideas
Oil Pyrex dish(9x13 for thin or ) or cast iron skillet(10")
In a large bowl mix/mash squash and eggs together with a fork
Mix in hemp, collagen, cassava salt and flax a little at a time.
Add the optional veggies if you like (I suggest at least a bit of spinach fresh or frozen)
Add preferred spice if you want
Pour in to pyrex or cast iron
make sure veggies are not sticking out of the mix
make a pretty design in top with spinach if you wish
Place in oven
Bake for 30-45 min depending on how big your dish or pan is mines usually about 35 minutes
