Ready for some pancakes that actually fuel muscle growth?
I formulated this tasty treat myself out of frustration quite honestly. (The pics in this post are from a batch I made just yesterday.)
I wanted a snack that was high in protein but didn’t have whey protein as one of the ingredients.
It seems that almost all high protein recipes that try to replicate an unhealthy snack call for whey protein or other ingredients that the average Joe doesn’t have in their cupboard.
This one is easy!
Here’s the ingredients…
2 x medium eggs
50g wholemeal flour
1 x pot 0% Total Natural Yogurt (170g pot)
The following are optional
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil, butter, or coconut oil to cook with (or use a non-stick pan)
- Splenda, stevia, xylitol, or sugar-free syrup to sweeten
Protein – 38.5 grams (154 Calories)
Carbs – 73.5 grams (294 Calories)
Fat – 15 grams (135 Calories)
Total Calories = 583
Yes this is still a fairly high carb meal. Even on the GLAD diet I would have this as an occasional treat, not a daily indulgence. The GL of this meal would probably be over the 15GL limit.
Weigh out your ingredients (please get a set of DIGITAL kitchen scales) and place them all in a large bowl. I crushed my blueberries before adding them so that the juice would spread throughout the mixture and flavor it nicely.
Mix all the ingredients for a few minutes until you get a thick batter.
Put your pan over a medium heat and add the mixture. DON’T try to make large pancakes with this, they will break when you attempt to flip them over. Make 4 x smaller pancakes with the measurements above.
Optional: Add your sweetener, syrup, and cinnamon after you remove the pancakes from the heat. You can add some sweetener to the mixture before cooking if you wish. Without sweetener, the only ‘sweet’ in this will come from the blueberries themselves.
