Super low-fat protein-packed pancakes
Okay, so today I’m going to take you through one of my favourite things to cook, pancakes. Now I strongly believe that every health orientated person needs a go to clean junk food recipe. Mine is this protein pancake recipe, it’s very straightforward and easy as well as being incredibly macro-friendly!
Do you also want to hear the best part? All the ingredients are natural and probably just lying around the kitchen!
Okay, so the values below will make about 4 to 5 reasonably sized pancakes, pre-warning I normally, however, double these values to make it into a real mouth watering meal!
- 1 Banana (average of 100 grams)
- 40 grams of Oats (Can use flavoured or regular)
- 1 whole egg
- 1 scoop protein powder of your choice
There is also a bunch of optional extras that I like to add depending on the day and the macros I have left:
- 10 grams Flaxseed powder (bulk out the pancakes and healthy fats)
- 50 – 100 grams Low-fat cottage cheese
- 50 -100 grams low-fat (or 0%) Greek yoghurt
- Egg whites (more protein!)
Now here’s the easy part, take all your chosen ingredients and throw it in a blender. Mix it all up until you get a smooth mixture. Next, spray a non-stick pan with some cooking spray (either fry-light butter spray or PAM). Olive oil and coconut oil work just as well but let’s keep those fats low!
Pour the mixture into the pan and let it cook, wait for about 30 – 60 seconds or until bubbles form on the top and flip! Keep going until you’ve used all the mixture and you’ll have one lovely stack of pancakes!
Now you’ve got your macro friendly pancakes you can top them with whatever you want! I normally throw a bunch of fruit on there like raspberries blueberries and strawberries. Last but not least is a good low-calorie sauce or syrup, I opt for the Walden Farms pancake syrup or honey!
