Time needed: 4 minutes per pancake.
Ingredients (makes 3 pancakes):
5 egg whites
25ml milk (optional)
25g Oats (optional)
Cacao powder 1tsp
1 scoop whey protein
Coconut oil 1tsp
Note: I use coconut oil to cook with because of the healthy fats and other health benefits e.g. clearer skin.
1. Using a mixing cup, blend the egg whites, milk, protein powder, flaxseed and cacao (if using).
2. Heat up a non-stick frying pan (medium heat) and add coconut oil. Once melted, pour a third of your pancake mixture into pan. Add lid and cook for 1.5-2mins. When ready to flip over, sprinkle with berries and cinnamon (optional).
3.Cook for a further 1min max on opposite side. The berries should be slightly cooked and starting to burst. Serve.
Here I used almond butter and half a banana to serve with, as a post-workout meal!
