The warm climate along with the rich volcanic soil of the Hawaiian Islands create the ideal landscape for growing coffee beans. In fact, Hawaii has become one of the world’s leading producers of premium coffees. Each island and even each farm, grow coffees with unique and differentiated flavor notes.

KING’S HAWAIIAN offers six special coffee choices from five different areas across the islands. My personal favorite was the Kona Coffee. It’s a medium roast with a nutty, soft sweetness and hints of pear, lemon, and black tea. It comes from Hawaii’s most renowned growing region.

A great way to try out all of the lovely KING’S HAWAIIAN coffee flavors is to purchase the available gift-set containing a sample of five 100% Hawaiian coffees from the Single Origin line, each representing a different region of Hawaii and a unique and differentiated tasting experience. And what a great gift this set would make, for the coffee lover in your life!

 I hope you all get a chance to give KING’S HAWAIIAN coffee and these Cinnamon Roll Protein Pancakes a try! I know you guys are bound to love both. The pancakes are perfectly sweet with just the right amount of cinnamon goodness. They’re also so easy to make and seriously SO delicious.

They would make the perfect breakfast for lazy weekends or special occasions (like the holidays!).

These Cinnamon Roll Protein Pancakes taste just like a decadent cinnamon roll but without all the guilt… a perfect holiday (or any day) breakfast treat!

Ingredients
Protein Pancakes
  • 1/2 cup oat flour or 3/4 cup old fashioned oats ground into flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder or additional oat flour
  • 2-4 packets stevia or 1-2 tablespoons sweetener of choice, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup plain low fat or fat free Greek yogurt
  • 2 large egg whites or 1/3 cup from carton egg whites
Cinnamon Swirl
  • 1/8 cup baking stevia or 1/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar or 4-6 packets stevia
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder or brown sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons water (may need more to achieve desired consistency, cinnamon swirl should be thick, but also just thin enough to swirl on to pancake)
Instructions
  1. Add all pancake ingredients into blender and blend until everything is evenly mixed. Spray a nonstick griddle or large skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Pour batter onto heated griddle or pan into a small circle to make each pancake. 

  2. Meanwhile, prepare cinnamon swirl by mixing together ingredients for the cinnamon swirl in a small bowl. Mixture should be thick. Scoop the mixture into a small plastic bag. Snip the very end of the corner of baggie of cinnamon filling and squeeze the filling into the open corner. 

  3. Starting at the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl motion, moving to the outside of the pancake. 

  4. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles begin to form on top of the pancake and it's golden brown on the bottom. Gently but quickly flip it over and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the other side is lightly golden brown. Place the pancakes on a plate, cinnamon side up! 

  5. Top pancakes with Greek yogurt mixed with equal parts low sugar maple syrup if desired for a 'glaze' or simply drizzle with pancake syrup!

Recipe Notes

I used stevia packet to sweeten both the pancakes and the cinnamon swirl. I also used the packets to calculate the nutritional information.
