Protein Pancakes!

Hi Everyone!
As I’m sure many of you know eating breakfast is so important! And it can be your secret weapon to kick start your metabolism, fueling your body to start burning calories. I will even make these for dinner sometimes! protein-pancakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 banana (mashed) – mash first, then add remaining ingredients
  • 1/4 C egg whites
  • 1/4 C rolled oats (or quick cooking oats)
  • 2 scoop organic plant-based protein (I like Perfect Fit Protein)
  • 2 TBSP vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder 
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed
  • 1 TBSP wheat germ
  • 1 packet of stevia (optional)

Sidebar: you can still enjoy tasty pancakes in a pinch even if you’re missing some of the ingredients listed above. I’m going to let you in on a little secret; call me lazy, but I typically only use the  4 ingredients listed below when I make these and I personally think they taste just as delicious!!

  • 1/2 banana (mashed) – mash first, then add remaining ingredients
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop organic plant-based protein (I like Perfect Fit Protein
  • 1/4 C egg whites (or until the right consistency is achieved, the mixture shouldn’t be too thick, or too runny – I actually don’t measure this step when I make them, after a while you’ll get the hang of it and know how thick or runny to make your mixture!)

HOW TO MAKE

  1. I like to coat a nonstick skillet with coconut oil cooking spray, then wipe away excess with a paper towel (set this aside to re-coat the skillet in between each pancake!)
  2. Heat to medium-low heat
  3. Spoon batter into the skillet and cook for 1 – 2 mins (or until firm)
  4. Using a spatula, carefully flip the pancake. Cook for about 1 min!

Top with fresh berries and stevia! ENJOY your protein pancakes!! You can drizzle with 1-tbs agave or organic maple syrup on top, if you need more carbohydrates.

Mix up your batter each time by adding one of the following:

  • blueberries
  • sliced strawberries
  • unsweetened shredded coconut
  • unsweetened carob chips

One of the best sources of a complete protein is found in egg whites. A complete protein consists of all nine essential amino acids in certain proportions for supporting biological functions in the human body. An incomplete protein may contain all the essential amino acids, but not in the correct proportions.
