Breakfast Idea

Protein Pancakes!

I have been craving pancakes for a while now, while half of me is saying eat them, the other half is saying….. watch your diet! Well I can honestly say I have found a good protein pancake recipe. Turn a naughty indulgent breakfast, into a lean, mean, tasty, treat. The difference is that this childhood favourite contains slow-releasing carbs. It has plenty of fibre, with a juicy amount of protein. Its tasty, healthy and a clean bulking up breakfast meal with protein pancakes.

INGREDIENTSProtein Pancakes
1 Cup Oats (or other grain)
2 Whole Eggs
5 Egg Whites
2 Scoops Protein Powder
1 Cup Berries
2 tbsp Peanut Butter
1 Banana (chopped)
Cinnamon (dash to taste)
2 tbsp Coconut Oil

Cook the oats (follow the instructions on the box) and add the eggs and egg whites. Beat slowly.  Carefully add the protein scoops, berries, banana, and peanut butter. Stir until completely mixed. Tap a few sprinkles of cinnamon to the mixture. You can add sweetener (not sugar) if you prefer. Heat up the pan, and add coconut oil on a high temperature. Spoon in the mixture…. making average size pancakes. Flip when bubbles appear. Let them cool. Add additional healthy toppings (fruit or peanut butter) and enjoy!
