Matcha Pancakes With time being of the essence as always, I have been doing a lot of meal prep lately. My absolute favorite has been a rendition of various protein pancakes for either a quick breakfast or delicious snack. Of course eating more than one as a meal and just one as a snack. I have been trying out a lot of different combos with them and what I have discovered…you cannot go wrong. So in lieu of a post today I am going to share my favorite recipe for protein style pancakes (that can also be made into waffles with a waffle iron) you can mix and match your add ins for different flavors, but stick to your portions. This recipe contains 3 food groups as the base, making it a perfect meal!
The Perfect Pancakes (*this recipe makes 1 meal or 2-3 snacks) ¼ cup egg whites 1 scoop of protein powder of your choice ½ ripe banana ¼ cup raw rolled oats
Optional add ins Remember that depending on what you pick, add ins can add up so start with adding one with a caloric impact at a time.
My absolute favorite of the moment is 1 tsp of Matcha + a little cinnamon!
1 tsp. Matcha Green Tea Powder 1 tbsp chia or flax seeds 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp cinnamon 2 tbsp pure pumpkin puree 1 tsp cocoa powder 2 tbsp PB2 ½ cup berries 1 tbsp cacao nibs
Now, if you are not a fan of protein powders try this: (*this recipe makes 1 meal or 2-3 snacks) ¼ cup raw rolled oats 1/2 ripe banana 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon 2 egg whites or may sub 1 full egg 1/4 cup unsalted cottage cheese (high protein! But be sure to get unsalted) 1 tbsp milk of choice or may use water
Use #happyslimhealthy with your favorite pancake combo!!
