Notes

Substitute pea protein powder with unflavored rice protein powder if you wish. If you don't have either type of protein, experiment with adding some ground almonds. Just make sure your batter is thick before you bake it.

For really moist buns, add a tablespoon or two of cottage cheese to the batter before baking. You can also try adding herbs such as dried basil, rosemary, or dried parsley to the batter for gourmet flavor. Chopped sundried tomatoes and olives also work well.
