My word, I’m drooling just like my teething baby boy right now. Reason are these delicious Protein Pancakes, freshly made this morning. I’m not sure about you guys but I prefer dishes with a simple base. Dishes that can be tweaked one way or another (or another) based on needs as well as time and ingredients available.
Most mornings I opt for shakes rather than pancakes but when I have a few minutes extra I simply pour my shake mix into a pan and make these little goodies instead. Same recipe, different execution.
I use pasteurised egg whites from Two Chicks as that way I neither have to separate whites and yolks and can also simply drink the whites without risking Salmonella. As for the protein I use raw vegan unflavoured powder from Protein Works for myself and vanilla whey from Reflex Nutrition for hubby. Simply depends on preference. Same for cottage cheese which I often replace with dairy free coconut yoghurt.
THE BASE – RECIPE
1/4 cup raw oats
1/4 cup cottage cheese (or dairy free yoghurt)
1/2 scoop protein powder
1/2 cup egg whites
Amount per serving
Total Fat 3 g
Total Carbs 23 g
Protein 35 g
I often add fruit (e.g. Blueberries, Banana), seeds or other superfoods such as Moringa or Macca. If you count your macros you’ll have to add anything that comes extra.
Today’s version also includes Pistachio, Pecan, Raspberry pure, Coconut yogurt and a little peanut butter mixed with quark. All topped with cinnamon and edible flowers from whole-foods.
Not sure about you guys but you have to excuse me, I have to tuck in 😛
Have a delicious day ahead X
