Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to cook and right up until the birth of our little baby I was spending my pre-natal days cooking up a storm. As my cooking spree was temporarily put on hold post-baby, you can imagine my excitement when I finally had the energy and opportunity to get back in the kitchen.
Five weeks post-natal and what a beautiful day it had been in Melbourne, the sun was shining and baby was sound asleep after his early morning feed. I felt like it had been eternity since I was feeling semi-normal again and decided it would be a great day to get back into the kitchen. Having woken up with a craving for pancakes but not the guilt that’s associated, I whipped up these babies, ticking all the boxes for a yummy & nutritious breakfast. These not only make a delicious breakfast but they also make a great snack to suppress those mid morning or late afternoon sweet cravings. I often like to make a big batch storing them in an airtight container in the fridge and then popping them in the toaster when I’m ready to eat! There are a few flavour variations you can try but I am a plain Jane and love vanilla!
So without further ado I present to you my Protein Power Pancake recipe, enjoy!
Love Wifey xx
1/4 cup spelt or GF flour
1/4 cup LSA (if you can’t find LSA use any other nut meal like almond meal)
2 tbsp desiccated/shredded coconut
2 scoops of protein powder (you can have fun with this, I like to use Amazonia RAW protein powder in vanilla or cacao & coconut)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup of milk/milk alternative
pinch of pink himalayan rock salt
- Mix all dry ingredients into a bowl.
- Add eggs and milk and mix well. If you need to, add more milk or LSA to get it to a good consistency, you obviously don’t want it to be too runny!
- Heat a non-stick pancake pan on medium flame and pour approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture onto the hot pan (the pancakes should only be pikelet size).
- Once the mixture starts to bubble flip your pancake over for about a 1-2mintues.
- Top your pancakes with anything you like or just eat them plain! I like to top with banana and honey or fresh berries and shredded coconut!
Serves 4 (makes about 12 pancakes)
