Carbs:18 Protein: 45 Fat: 9

Recipe

Dry Ingredients

25g Coconut Flour

25g Vanilla Whey Protein (I use myprotein vanilla whey)

5g Oats

Half tsp baking powder

2g Psyllium Husk (optional – for fiber!)

Wet Ingredientspancakes4

1 Whole Egg

2 Egg Whites

40g Cottage Cheese

40g Quark

50g Non-fat greek yoghurt

Half a banana (about 30g)

Almond milk – added to make the batter the right consistency (any milk/substitute will work)

Recipe pancakes2

In a food processor/ blender/bowl/cup/hand crafted clay ornament made specifically for the occasion… combine all the dry ingredients. In another bowl, give the eggs a quick whisk so they combine- the more whisked the better as this will add volume. Add the eggs, and the remainder of the wet ingredients to the dry mix. If you’re using a bowl, mash the banana well before adding in. Stir to combine well. If your batter is too thick add some almond milk (or any other milk/substitute). Blend/Mix together!

Heat up a pan on high heat, you can use oil if you please, a slight coat of non-stick spray works well and keeps the calories/fat low!

Add pancake mix to the pan and make it as big or small as you wish. I find pancakes about 3 inches wide tend to work very well. When bubbles begin to form at the top of the pankcake- time to flip! Cook the flip side for 30secs to 1 minute- a lot less time is required on this side. Take from the pan and serve! Repeat for the remainder of the batter!

Serving Suggestions

Adding cinnamon to the mixture works really well!

Chocolate chips: Stir into batter after blending and cook

Top with: Greek yoghurt (for even more protein), peanut butter, fruit, syrups, or anything else you fancy!!

Change up the whey! Make some chocolate protein pancakes, add some cocoa powder in, experiment with whatever you like.
