So as a lot of you know I eat a lot of low carb foods! Unfortunately pancakes never fell into that category, until now! I recently discovered that my protein powder can also be used to make pancakes! So you can imagine how delighted I was when I made some yesterday and not only did they look like yummy, fluffy pancakes, but they also tasted amazingly sweet! Seeing as I gave up sugar a long time ago, these are a little guilt-free treat that I can have and best of all it helps me meet my protein macros! So I used PHD Diet Whey in a vanilla cream flavour, but you can use whatever kind of flavour of protein you like! Which is great for variety, you can get chocolate brownie, red velvet cupcake, cookies and cream flavour just to name a few, so as you can see you can really switch it up and make it into a guiltless treat! So the batch I made serves 2 people and each gets 4 pancakes, let me know if you try it out!
50 grams of PHD Diet Whey (I used Vanilla Creme Flavour)
1 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Cinnamon
Coconut Oil Spray
For the Toppings
Natural Yoghurt – 30 grams (15 grams each)
1 Mixed Berry snackpot – divided between 2 people
Mix your protein powder, cinnamon and baking powder together in a bowl. Then add your 2 eggs and mix.
Slowly begin to add water bit by bit while whisking until you get a batter like consistency, leave for 10 minutes to let the baking powder do it’s thing.
Spray your coconut oil onto the pan and heat it up.
Spoon your mixture onto the pan, NB – wait until the mixture begins to bubble and holes form in the pancake, if you don’t it’s not ready to flip! Slide the spatula underneath and flip over to cook the other side.
Keep repeating until all of your batter is gone! Then top with your natural yoghurt and berries and there you have it! Yummy, fluffy, protein pancakes!
