Being back in the kitchen and experimenting with protein powders and whatever I can find in my pantry feels great. Of course it takes effort on my behalf (mostly leaving work immediately and heading home to the kitchen). Needless to say today I did just that! I left immediately and came home to make protein pancakes. I had bananas, some chocolate whey protein and whole wheat pastry flour= TA DA!
Here are some ingredients I used:
Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Trader Joe’s baking powder and soda, bananas (also from Trader Joe’s); Kerry Gold organic, grassfed butter; Dymatize ISO 100 Chocolate Whey Protein; Fairway organic grassfed whole milk; Bragg’s raw organic apple cider; and eggs.
RECIPE GOES AS FOLLOWS
1 MEDIUM BANANA (mashed until smooth)
- 3/4 c. of organic grassfed milk
- 1 whole egg (beaten)
- 1 tbsp. melted organic grassfed butter
- 1 tsp. raw organic apple cider
- 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4-1 scoop of chocolate whey protein
Extra butter for cooking and maple syrup or coconut nectar to serve.
Mix and beat the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth (pancake batter consistency).
Pour pancake mixture in large dollops (I use a large spoon) onto a heated skillet oiled with a tsp. of butter. Flip pancakes when holes appear (this indicates that they are cooked on the bottom side). Once pancakes are flipped and look a golden brown they are ready to be consumed. Serve with your choice of syrup or jam (I used organic Maple syrup). Photo shown above.
I hope you make these! I eat them for dinner mostly, not enough time to make them in the morning as I rush out of my house, straight to get coffee and then to the subway! Please comment if you make them or plan to.
Stay fit and fun,
