I love pancakes, but most of the time I can’t justify making them as they’re seriously loaded full of sugar, fat and probably about triple the calories of my normal breakfast allowance.
However, when you’re having a craving these guys are the perfect alternative to the thick American style ones and are practially guilt free! Each serving contains only 250kcal, 20g protein, 23g carbs, 8g fat and only 0.4g sugar ! (Plus whatever toppings you’d like to add…)
Life is good when you can sit down to a stack like this, guilt free – and on track for your goals.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
30g fine oatmeal/ oat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sweetener (to taste)
+ toppings of choice (I’ve made a blueberry sauce and topped with Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. The consistency should be slightly thinner than your normal American pancake mix but still on the thick side – I tend to do a test first and then add more flour/ water based on the consistency of the pancake!
- Place a frying pan on a medium heat and scoop the pancake mix into the pan – I tend to do 3 at a time.
- Once bubbles appear on the top of the pancake mix flip them over and cook for a further minute or so – they won’t take long on the other side !
- Once cooked remove from the pan and add the toppings of your choice!
