With pancake day on Tuesday I thought I'd prepare a pancake day post but a much healthier option for you all. For me, it's the start of my healthy eating plan as my Caribbean cruise is just 7 weeks today. So expect lots of healthy food posts, exercises and lifestyle posts in the run up to April (no Easter eggs). I've always loved Pancake day and favoured the sweeter options as opposed to a savoury pancake. I've tried my fair share of protein pancakes and have just about mastered the recipe! Obviously, you can adapt the recipe to suit your taste and change the protein flavour, use just eggs whites or choose your own topping! The oats and cinnamon do make it so yummy though!
1 Scoop of Protein Powder
1/2 cup of oats
1/2tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of coconut oil
Whatever toppings you want
This recipe made 5 pancakes, don't worry I didn't eat them all two was more than enough! I added the eggs, protein powder, oats, banana and cinnamon to my blend active and whizzed them up into a thick mixture. It did take a bit of blending and shaking due to the consistency! Whilst this was whizzing up I added a tbsp. of coconut oil to a small pan and heated it up. When the mixture was all blended I poured the batter into the pan, spreading it out with a spoon! I heated one side for about 2 minutes before flipping to brown the other side. The next steps up to you, you can choose whatever topping you want. I went for honey, strawberries and blueberries. But nutella would've been a good choice for me too! Enjoy your Shrove Tuesday!
What's your favourite pancake topping? Are you savoury or sweet?
