Recipe of the Week: Protein PancakesIngredients:

½ cup almond meal

3 tbsp. protein powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp. chia seeds

2 free-range eggs (lightly beaten)

¼ tsp vanilla extract concentrate

3-5 tbsp. almond milk or milk of your choice

Coconut oil in the pan for cooking

 

Method:

Firstly, combine the protein powder, almond meal, baking powder, cinnamon and chia seeds in a bowl. Add eggs and milk and mix well. Add the 3 tablespoons of milk first and a little extra if needed to make the batter the right consistency for your pancakes.

Warm the coconut oil in a frypan over a gentle heat. Add small amounts of batter in batches until pancakes are cooked through and golden on both sides.

As with any pancakes, you can serve with toppings of your own choice. Perhaps banana, yogurt and cinnamon if it’s breakfast time. Or for a healthier dessert option after a light weekend meal, berries and chocolate sauce*.

*Simply mix 2 tbsp. coconut oil with 2 tbsp. raw cacao until well combined. Then add 1 tbs. maple syrup, stirring until smooth and glossy.
