Protein Pancakes-that actually look like pancakes!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 Scoops Protein Powder I use Vanilla-but if you love chocolate-give it a try!
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 Cup Fat Free Milk
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnammon
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil I don't use this-but it will make the consistency of the pancake mix easier to stir-and make the pancake a lil more moist

Directions

So the sucky thing about protein pancakes is that…well they aren’t real damn pancakes!!! If you are trying to watch what you eat, however, they can at least provide a curb to the craving.

There are a MILLION protein pancake recipes out there. This is just one of many-and at least this protein pancake looks like an actual pancake and not some oatmeal scramble.

So-

Mix all dry ingedients together first then add in the milk, egg whites, and oil (the oil is optional-I don’t use this). Then cook like a regular pancake-word to the wise-cook on low fire and after the first flip take a fork and poke some holes on the top-otherwise-you may have an undercooked pancake in the center.

Normally-I top mine with fresh blueberries-but my daughter ate them all last night (I shall punish her later-HAHA)

Oh and I also top with sugar free syrup.

ENJOY your- looks like a real pancake but isn’t a real pancake -for breakfast-lunch or as I just did-midafternoon snack!

    Will have to try these..they look much more appealing than the oatmeal ones that resemble nothing close to a pancake other than shape…hehe 😉

  2. Marisa Marisa says:

    They are! BUT they are heavy and not fluffy like a real pancake due to the wheat flour-

    These are good. Nothing is gonna be as great tasting as ‘normal’ pancakes but these are much healthier! I don’t use the oil either so they’re a tad dry, but that’s no problem as I usually pile with syrup and/or boil up some blueberries to put over them. This is my fav recipe, simple to make.

    Do you know how many calories are in these? For those of us that are counting calories ?
