Pancake recipes don’t fit your macros? Too many ingredients you don’t already have? Use the following ingredients as a base, and you’ll start with a high protein, low carb/fat combo that you can play around with:
¼ cup (67.5mL) Almond Milk
½ scoop (17g) Protein Powder (any flavour works!)
3 (110g) large egg whites
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 (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. You can pretty well put anything you want on it and it will be delicious!
