I haven’t eaten a regular pancake in months, because these make me feel so much better! Normally I would eat a whole stack drowned in syrup, and then feel GROSS for the rest of the day. Not to mention, hungry an hour later. This is my go-to recipe for protein pancakes and I easily eat them 3-4 times a week!
Protein Pancakes (serves 1)
(adapted from this recipe)
1.5 scoops of Sun Warrior protein powder
2 TBSP whole wheat flour
1 egg white
1/4 cup water
a pinch of baking powder (I don’t measure, I just sprinkle a bit)
3-4 drops of stevia
2 dashes of cinnamon
1/8 tsp of the extract of your choice-I’ve done vanilla, almond, hazelnut, etc (this is optional)
I usually top mine with 1/2 sliced banana, 1-2 tsp peanut butter, and 1 tsp pure maple syrup.
Some other fave toppings would be cinnamon apples (simply chop up an apple, cook it in a little bit of water until soft, then sprinkle with cinnamon), or blueberries (same method as the apple, maybe add 1 tsp of syrup and some xantham gum to thicken up the berries to make a kind of “compote.” You could also put the blueberries in the pancakes!! Or, if you’re wanting an extra treat, add 1-2 teaspoons of chocolate chips to the batter.
If you’re doing the 21 Day Fix, I count this as 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 purple (for the fruit topping) and 1 teaspoon (peanut butter). Remember to measure accordingly with the fruit. If you use the chocolate chips, use 1 tsp only and it counts as ANOTHER yellow.
Enjoy! And let me know if you try it!
