For those wanting to feel a little bit naughty by indulging in a deliciously sweet treat but without the sugar coma and bloated stomach, then listen up. Packed with a hell of a lot of protein (30g per serving), this treat is one that is not only pleasing to the eye and your tastebuds, but your body is going to thank you for it too. This is definitely my kinda treat! They taste so good, so much so that I have found myself making a batch of these pancakes on numerous occasions in the same week. I have eaten these for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, not in the same day however, but they work so well anytime of day, especially for recovery after a workout. Forget pancake day, these pancakes are quickly becoming my life and I’m sure once you try this recipe, you won’t just be enjoying them just once a year either.
You will need: 300ml Almond Milk, 40g Oats, 40g Chocolate Protein Powder, 2x Eggs and a small amount of butter.
How to make: Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend for around 30-45secs until you see a thick liquid. Using almond milk tends to give the pancake that extra light and fluffy texture. Heat a one egg wonder pan with a small amount of butter, then add the mixture. Leave for 2-3 minutes on a medium heat, before flipping.
Optional toppings: To satisfy your sweet tooth without a sugar overload, my fave combo is to add a couple of dollops of natural yogurt, drizzle some honey (or maple syrup) and add a handful of frozen berries.
Serves two, with 3 pancakes each.
