Going to keep this post short + sweet today -- here's the long-promised recipe for my protein pancakes and a few tips to save some time in the morning :)
|chocolate banana topped with maranatha choc|
almond butter + SF syrup + banana
|berry pancakes with raspberry "jam"|
1/2 cup oats (use blender to chop into oat flour)
1/4 tsp baking powder
cinnamon (2 big shakes)
1/2 tsp splenda brown sugar sweetener (or natural sweetener of your choice!)
1/2 c egg whites
2 tbsp water
for chocolate banana pancakes add in:
1 - 2 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 extra ripe banana
Other optional add-ins:
1/4 c frozen berries (raspberry/blueberry)
1/2 c pumpkin puree
a few shakes of pumpkin spice
|prepping baggies ahead of time|
makes breakfast quick + easy!
I like to prep 5 "batches" at a time so I'd do 2.5 c of oats and x5 all the rest of the dry ingredients too then divide into ziploc baggies so that I'm not spending time measuring and chopping oats in the AM! :) I keep these baggies in the cupboard then when I get up, just throw that into a bowl, add my egg whites, berries and water and heat up my pan.
When I've got a bit of extra time the night before, I'll actually make the pancakes and wrap them in tinfoil and then store the in the fridge. When I get up in the morning, I just throw them in the oven 100* and get ready while they're heating then take to work or eat in the car!

Have a fantastic, fit and sweaty week all!!
