Yummy Protein Pancakes
Is there anything more enticing than the idea of fresh and fluffy pancakes to start your day off? Or for an indulgent post-dinner treat? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It’s a shame they’re so naughty, or I’d be eating them on a weekly basis. The good news is that by substituting that gloopy supermarket mix with these delicious protein pancakes, you not only can eat them on a regular basis, I’d go so far as to say you should do so!
Easiest Mix Ever (serves one)
- 3 whole organic eggs
- 1-2 scoops chocolate or vanilla protein powder – be sure to choose an organic brand without synthetic chemicals
- Pinch or two of stevia
- Coconut oil for cooking
Whip It Up
Beat the eggs well with a fork or a whisk – the lighter the mix before you cook it, the fluffier the pancakes. Add one scoop of your protein powder and the stevia and beat through thoroughly. Depending on the size of your eggs, the mixture will likely be too runny, so add another half to one scoops of powder. Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a medium sized pan – try to avoid teflon or non-stick as it releases toxic chemicals into your food. Even the really expensive ones will do this – if you’re not convinced simply heat a small amount of water with some baking soda in your pan, and then taste. Yuck! But for now (yum), once your oil is properly heated place a generous scoop of pancake mix into the middle of the pan. Allow to spread. Cook for around 2 minutes, or until pancake easily lifts from pan and you can flip it. If you don’t use enough coconut oil, you could end up with a stick mess. Once side two is cooked, simply toss onto a plate. Serve with a small amount of organic butter or cream, and some fresh berries.
PS – try to stop at one. I bet you can’t!
