Its the weekend, and weekends definitely call for pancakes! After Dawn was telling me about these protein pancakes that Mandy told her about I had to give them a try. Measurements are all by feel, and truly an experiment, but they were not half bad and although I missed piling on the butter and syrup, it was nice to have a breadlike breakfast. You know me, I had to add sliced banana into the pancakes and smear them with sunflower butter, a well rounded breakfast with protein, fruit carbs, and good fat. I plan on trying these again with different flavored protein powder and different fruit. Thinking of vanilla powder and blueberries next time.
Chocolate Protein Pancakes
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use the BSN Dessert line - chocolate fudge)
about 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
a couple of tablespoons coconut milk
1/2 a banana sliced
Stir ingredients into a pancake batter like consistency. Add powder if its too runny or egg whites or coconut milk if its too dry. Heat skillit and spray generously with pam. spoon out into three pancakes and turn when edges start turning up. Spray again as you flip so they don't stick. Serve with almond butter or sunflower butter.
**Hey, if anyone tries any of these recipes, why don't you comment and rate them. It would be nice to know what others think and what you did to tweak the recipe to make it different or better. Lets give 'em a letter grade A through F just like school.
