Who said pancakes are bad for you... not me!
I have always loved pancakes but avoided them for years due to their high fat and sugar content. Now you can enjoy delicious pancakes without the guilt, in fact these pancakes are actually good for you.
With slow release carbohydrates, fibre and a sizable amount of protein these pancakes are great for breakfast (pre & post training), a healthy snack, and for those of you with little ones, they're a real winner with the children too.
Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
2 cups of rolled oats
2 egg whites
1/2 cup of Milk
2 scoops protein powder (I use Whey Isolate Gold Standard Vanilla)
2 tbsp peanut butter (optional)
2 tbsp Chia seeds
1 dash cinnamon (to taste)
2 tbsp coconut oil
Add the oats to a blender or thermomix and blend until mixture is fine with a similar consistency to flour.
Add the remaining ingredients (eggs, protein powder, milk, peanut butter, chia seeds) and blender together until you have a batter like mixture.
*Note: Some oats blend differently depending on the size and brand. Add additional milk if the mixture is too thick or place the mixture in the fridge to thicken.
Heat coconut oil in a frying pan. Add pancake batter to the pan and flip pancakes when bubbles appear on the surface. Cook until pancakes are golden on both sides.
Pancakes can be eaten hot or cold and freeze really well so why not make up a big batch.
