Good Evening (say what??)
I just finished the third dog walk of the day, and still exhausted from yesterday’s hiking adventure. Our hiking video + blog post will be live Friday! 🙂 The good thing about being tired is planting yourself on the couch and catching up on work while binge-watching terrible reality television. If you’re wondering, I’m two seasons deep into Southern Charm.
I did manage to get up and make delicious pancakes today (My legs feel like cement.) I get a lot of questions about the protein pancakes I make, and I thought I’d take some time to share the “how-to” on them tonight! Who says you can’t throw out an unplanned blog post in the evening?
I have to admit, this wasn’t my first cup of coffee today. I have been doing the one cup of coffee a day for a very long time, and plan to continue this, but today I couldn’t pull myself together. I had a cup of coffee at Kyle’s this morning, drove way out into the country to pick up my dogs from my parent’s house, and then turned to coffee and a delicious protein pancake breakfast in hopes that it would bring me back to life.
What I love about this simple protein pancake recipe is that it only has three main ingredients, and then whatever extra’s you want to add! This entire stack has 240 Calories, 21 Carbs, 4g Fiber, 6g Fat, 27g Protein, and only 2g Sugar. Talk about a perfect post workrout breakfast. The game changer with protein pancakes is using plant-based. It tastes so much better!
3-Ingredient Go-To Protein Pancakes
- 1/2 Large Banana (or small banana)
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Plant-Based Protein Powder (I used Vega)
- 1 Large Egg
- Mash the banana with a fork and scramble it with the egg.
- Mix in the protein powder.
- Heat a pan to medium. I used avocado oil spray to grease.
- Scoop the pancake batter into your preferred sized cakes onto the pan, (add your choice of fillers) and cook each side for about six minutes.
I love how thick these pancakes are! The protein powder really adds the floury texture. And if you want to be super adventures, you could add chocolate protein powder and some peanut butter. That’s what Kyle likes to do!
I’m a blueberry girl (just laughed out loud by myself because I thought of Willy Wonka, goodness I’m delirious today), and that’s always my go-to filler! You could add chocolate chips, nut butter, cranberries, apples, or anything you like in your pancakes. I had to finish this recipe off with some maple syrup! Goodness, I love syrup! This recipe also works in the waffle maker! I’ll make those tomorrow, and share the photo on my Insta story.
I’ll be heading to yoga early morning in hopes that I can start my day off right and pull myself together! I’ll keep you posted. Now, it’s time for me to make a cup of tea and just dive deeper into this show! Have a great night, everyone!I had to share an update this morning! The waffle turned out great! Photo above 🙂
Questions for you!
- What is your pancake filler?
- Are you a chocolate or vanilla protein person?
- Have you ever had a day where you couldn’t pull yourself together?
