This recipe rocks! So far this is the 3rd time I made it. First two times were a fail… due to too much protein powder and a crappy pan… (Well the pan is actually my favorite… but for meat and chicken, clearly NOT pancakes!) Shh… don’t tell Jared, but I think he is right. Everytime he messed up the eggs and pancakes in that pan I blamed him even though he said it’s the pan… It’s a greenpan of some sort and nothing sticks to it, but it heats up too fast for delicate foods.
Moving on, there are many variations with this recipe and I plan to experiment a little more, but here was today’s success. Pancakes for lunch that is. 😉
(Inspired by here)
1/4 cup of egg whites
1 scoop of protein powder (soy, rice, whey) *
1 T almond flour (optional… I was just experimenting)
1 tsp Pumpkin spice or cinnamon
1 T ground flaxseed
1/2 mashed banana
*I used about 3/4 scoop. The first batch I used a full scoop and I felt it was too much. Also depends on what kind you use, some are 15+ grams a scoop whereas others are 26+
Mix all the ingredients together and add optional berries in mix (I added blueberries).
Heat up a pan, once pan is hot spray with coconut oil (or another high heat oil), reduce temp to medium and add batter to cook like a regular pancake. (flip when it looks crispy at ends and/or starts to bubble on top)
I topped mine with a little NuStevia powder and strawberries.
Next time I will be adding almond milk and/or applesauce and see how that changes the texture. I will keep you updated on how it goes. Either way, today’s lunch = YUM!!! My appetizer was a dark chocolate honey mint thin from Trader Joes. I was good and restricted myself to just one. Those were literally the only 3 ingredients, how awesome is that?! Goodbye york peppermint patties! EW!
On another note, not coming prepared with adequate snacks yesterday and getting off track = overdose in the only thing I could find. Double Bubble Gumballs…. Not smart. Ok and I wanted to see how many times I had to turn the darn dial before I would get a blue gumball. I am gumablled out. Which is a good thing since it’s horrible for the digestive track and tummy bubbles!
