Healthy Protein Pancakes

Posted by on

Here's a quick fix meal, a high protein option, ideal for pre or post training!

Why?

-Time efficient - Usually in a rush? Perfect solution.

-High Protein - Great for recovery.

-Easy recipe - Whatever level you are at as a cook, it doesn't get any simpler!

Time needed: 4 minutes per pancake.

Ingredients (makes 3 pancakes):

  • 5 egg whites

  • 25ml milk (optional)

  • 25g Oats (optional)

  • Cacao powder 1tsp

  • Flaxseed 1tbsp

  • 1 scoop whey protein

  • Handful berries

  • Coconut oil 1tsp

Cinnamon

Note: I use coconut oil to cook with because of the healthy fats and other health benefits e.g. clearer skin.

Method:

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!

Tips:

- Add or take out oats/milk for a lower calorie option.

-Use food processor or blender to mix ingredients.

- Can use Casein protein if eating before bed time.

-Get innovative, add nuts, seeds even a squeeze of honey!

Easy to take with you at work!

Best,

Dejan
