Protein Pancake Cooking Method: 
1. Heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in a non-stick fry pan. Spoon in the pancake mixture into pancakes sizes of your choice. 

2. Flip the pancakes after 2-3 minutes or when small bubbles start to form on the surface. Cook the second side for 2 minutes or until cooked through. Continue until you've used all the pancake mixture.
