Recipe: My Top 3 Protein Pancake Recipes

0  comments

I LOVE pancakes.

And I actually really love protein pancakes.

With a good recipe, you can make them taste AMAZING, and much better for you than normal pancakes.

The high protein content makes them a lot more filling, you’ll get more nutrition from the ingredients, and there’ll be no need for a sugary topping. There’s so much lovely flavour in the mixture that they work really well with just fruit and yogurt on top.

I’ve tried a fair few recipes in my time as I sometimes like to have these for breakfast too, not just on pancake day.

The three recipes below are my all time favourites.

These are all found in my Healthy Recipe Ebook, and I’ve had quite a few comments, most recently from my Online coaching ladies, about how delicious they are.

So, without further ado, here’s my 

TOP THREE FAVOURITE PROTEIN PANCAKE RECIPES:

CHOCOLATE BROWNIE DECADENCE PROTEIN PANCAKES

Ingredients 
 1 small banana
 1 scoop chocolate brownie protein powder (or just plain chocolate flavour if you don’t have the brownie one)
 1 tbsp cacao powder (found in sainsburys or on amazon, can use dark cocoa powder as an alternative although cacao tastes better)
 1 egg
 2 tsp coconut oil
 Yeo valley 0% natural yogurt
 Fresh berries   

Cacao powder and coconut oil can be found HERE

Instructions   
Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a frying pan on a medium-high heat.
Blend the banana, protein powder, cacao powder and egg.
It needs to be a fairly thick batter but if it’s too thick you can add a dash of milk too.
Pour half the mixture into two small pancakes in the pan.
Cook for a couple of minutes, then flip.
Cook for another minute and then remove to a plate.
Add another teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan and repeat with the other half of the mixture.
Once cooked, stack the pancakes with a tablespoon of yogurt between each one.
Top with another spoon of yogurt and some fresh berries.
Delicious!

Cook for a further minute then remove the pancakes to a plate.

BANANA – NUT-BUTTER PANCAKES (No protein powder required)
20141028_071738
Ingredients  
 1 egg
 1 banana
 1 tbsp almond butter
 1 tsp coconut oil
 Yeo valley 0% natural yogurt
 75g frozen berries   

Instructions  
Add the frozen berries to a saucepan with 1-2 tbsp water and cook on a low heat for 3-5 minutes, until thawed and starting to melt. Meanwhile heat the coconut oil in a pan, then blend the egg, banana and almond butter into a batter and pour into a pan once the oil has melted. Cook for a couple of minutes either side on a high heat. Top with the yogurt and berries (the melted berries create a lovely coulis too!)
