Protein Pancakes

Happy Friday!! To kick off the weekend, I thought I’d share our household’s staple breakfast dish. Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day as it kickstarts your metabolism. These protein pancakes are not only absolutely delicious, but also will keep you feel AT LEAST until lunch time. They are also extremely easy and quick to make and a batch will last you the whole week. I eat mine with peanut butter every morning and I crave them while falling asleep the night before.

Follow this recipe:

  • 3 scoops of protein powder
  • 1.5 cups of oats
  • 2 cups of egg whites
  • 1.5 cups of unsweetened apple sauce (or 3 bananas)
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar splenda
  • 1.5 tablespoon sof cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of vanilla extract

 

Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and blend with a blender. Refrigerate blended mixture for about half an hour or overnight. Cook in a frying pan over medium heat. Store in Ziploc containers in the fridge. Toast to re-heat and serve with peanut butter!
