I've been getting a lot of inquiries for my protein pancakes in my Instagram stories, so I decided to share the recipe with you here!
It's one of my favourite go-tos because it has simple ingredients, it's easy to make, and best of all, it actually tastes like a treat!
¼ cup (67.5mL) Almond Milk
½ scoop (17g) Protein Powder (any flavour works!)
3 (110g) large egg whites (or 1 full egg - I prefer it with a real egg if you can spare the 5g of fat or don't track your macros!)
2 tbsp (12g) PB2 Protein (or any peanut butter!)
1 tbsp (15g) Chocolate chips
1. Mix it all together
Simply mix your almond milk, protein powder and egg whites/egg (and PB2 if you choose to use it) all together. You can either whisk it with a fork or throw it in the magic bullet for 30 seconds.
2. Throw it in a pancake flipper
Pancake flippers are best because your pancakes will be a bit more liquid than normal pancakes, so it definitely makes a difference when you’re trying to flip them to cook evenly. If you don’t have one, try cooking it in a frying pan or throwing it in the oven!
3. Eat it for gains
Top it with some zero-cal maple syrup, your favourite fruit or a little light whipped cream. My favourite is sprinkling some extra PB2 crumbles, vanilla greek yogurt, and any berries I have in my fridge, but you can pretty well put anything you want on it and it will be delicious!
THE MACROS: 33p - 13c - 8f (with chocolate chips!)
