After trying a protein pancake mix for the first time last week i couldn’t wait to try out a few home recipes at the weekend and try and make my own from scratch.
I don’t eat flour, butter or sugar so regular pancakes are out of the question. Oh and don’t forget regular pancakes are an absolute carb fest!
I tried out a few different recipes at the weekend. I’m not going to lie i was a bit sceptical at first of how much these ingredients could actually taste like real pancakes. I was actually very surprised after a few failed recipe attempts to find one that tasted and looked very ‘pancake like’.
Well, ill let you be the judge!
Per pancake – 240 kcal, 22g carbs, 3g fat, 35g protein
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- 3 egg whites
- 2 scoops protein powder
- ½ cup cottage cheese
- coconut oil (optional)
I know.. cottage cheese in pancakes? I promise they are so good and so easy to make.
I’d hardly call it a method to be fair. Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and pour into a non stick frying pan. Cook on a medium heat until the bottom is brown and then flip over and cook the other side until brown. I actually like to cook mine with a small teaspoon of coconut oil in the pan but that is optional.
That’s it, enjoy. Let me know what you think of them & feel free to comment with any suggestions of your own.
