Protein Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup
If you're like me and crave carbs first thing in the morning, but also don't want to start you day off on a bad note, give these protein pancakes a try! This recipe is loaded with protein, fibre, and deliciousness! They are light and fluffy, unlike the cardboard texture that many protein pancakes have. This recipe is a great source of vitamin B-12, vitamin D, folate, and potassium - plus it'll satisfy your craving for something sweet!
(Serves 1 person)
1 scoop protein powder (I prefer to use BSN Lean Dessert in Whipped Vanilla Cream)
1/4 cup oats (uncooked)
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 tsp baking power
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (You can use fresh blueberries, but there won't be as much juice)
2 Tbsp regular or sugarfree maple syrup OR agave nectar
1. Preheat a nonstick pan to medium and lightly spray with cooking spray (i.e. Pam)
2. Add all ingredients to a blender or Magic Bullet
3. In three batches, pour pancake batter into pan, wait until pancake starts to bubble and then flip. Continue until all three pancakes are made.
4. In a small bowl, microwave blueberries and syrup until warm (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute). Top pancakes with blueberry syrup.
