I’m about to introduce you to my newest obsession…protein pancakes! I make them a million ways, but this is one of my favourite versions! I had one of these fat, big pancakes after a hard morning workout this morning before everyone else was up (sometimes that’s the only way to get your workouts in!) and it was a-mahhhh-ziiing! It’s got loads of protein (with my protein powder about 30g!), fibre, healthy fats, it’s gluten free, dairy free, and it’s filling…which is why this is one of my favourite breakfasts ever.
This is a basic recipe…use your imagination and go wild! There’s lots of fun flavours you can make…I’m sure I’ll be posting more of them! Maybe coconut chocolate (since I’m craving of this combo lately!) banana, blueberry, or peanut butter! Mmmmm…
I used a whole organic egg in this because I’m one of those people who believe in lots of healthy fats, but you can easily just add more egg whites if you’re not keen on the egg yolk.
Oatmeal Protein Pancake
- ¼ cup quick cooking oats
- 1 organic egg
- 1 egg white
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 tbsp. organic ground flaxseed
- 1 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
- 1 packet Truvia
Just whisk up all those ingredients in a bowl. Pour onto a lightly misted (with olive oil) non-stick pan and cook! Simple as that…it’s such an easy breakfast to make and it literally takes just minutes. If you find it’s too dry, just add more almond milk!
I topped mine with plain yogurt (you can sweeten it with Truvia – it’s what I do!) and fresh, organic strawberries from the garden. Dig in!
And just when you thought it couldn’t get better I smothered my pancake with pure maple syrup (yes, smothered!). I could sense little angels dancing on my tongue.
