I woke up on Sunday with a massive dilemma. I had an immediate urge to eat something stodgy and appetising, but the sun beating through the curtains also made me want to get active.
So after I smashed my kettlebells, and before I ventured into the garden to battle the weeds, I reached out to the realms of the internet and found various recipes for protein pancakes. As I didn’t have the ingredients any particular recipe, I decided to make my own and they were delish! So I’m now putting my recipe out there for others to enjoy.
35g porridge oats (I use Scots Rough Porage Oats)
1 scoop protein powder (I use My Protein Impact Whey Isolate in Smooth Chocolate)
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg white
1 tablespoon Greek Yoghurt (I use low fat but full fat is just as good)
Splash of milk (I use Kara Coconut milk but cows milk is fine)
Blueberries or another type of berry. Chopped banana might work too!
Coconut oil (I use Organic Coconoil because its amazing but you could use a little butter. Just make sure it’s proper butter from grass fed cows!)
Put the porridge oats in a food processor and whizz them until they’re finely milled. Put them in a bowl with the protein and baking powder and add the wet ingredients. Mix until its all combined. Mine was lumpy but its just the oats.
Add the fruit and give a gentle stir so you don’t break it up too much.
Heat coconut oil in a pan and spoon in the batter. This makes about three good sized pancakes. Cook them until the bubbles appear then flip them for another minute or so.
Layer them up with more Greek yoghurt, fruit and maple syrup if you’re feeling naughty!
These pancakes can be made with most types of protein. Please add comments below if you make any different flavour combinations!
My next flavour will involve peanut butter…
Until then, stay strong and eat clean!
