It’s leading into the holidays and I have a few more days of work left before the break.
This morning, before the family wakes up as they don’t like my pancakes, mainly because they have protein in them and apparently they aren’t as good as the pancake mix you get that you add milk to from the supermarket, I am making vanilla protein pancakes with a vanilla protein pancake recipe I made up from my old ones.
Now pretty much every time in the past where I have made pancakes I have tried something new or chopped and changed bits and pieces depending on the what I have in the fridge or what fruit is in season, today is no different as nectarines and peaches are in season at the moment.
So I might keep things simple in regards to the protein pancake, I’ll be using vanilla protein powder and I’ll just add a chopped up apple and nectarine as a side to the pancake.
Here is today’s ingredients for my Monday morning Xmas Holidays vanilla protein pancakes.
¼ x Cup of porridge (Quick Oats)
1 x Full egg
2 x Tablespoons of milk
1 and a ½ scoops protein (I used a vanilla flavoured high protein powder)
1 x Teaspoon of organic honey
1 x Tablespoon olive oil (For cooking in the pan)
1 x Apple chopped up
1 x Nectarine chopped up
How to Cook and Serve the Protein Pancakes ::
Put all of the above, not the olive oil, honey or the chopped fruit, into a bowl and mix with a fork or similar, this time it shouldn’t take too long to mix up, there may be just a few lumps from the protein powder.
Heat your frying pan up on the stove, probably about half to three quarter heat, wait for it the pan to heat and then add the oil.
Pour the protein pancake mix into the pan, either one big pancake or a few small ones, with me as I am usually cooking these for myself I cook one big one.
Cook the protein pancake for a while until you see the very top layer bubble through, you’ll know what I am talking about when it happens, then you flip the pancake and then cook the other side until golden brown and then pancake is cooked through.
Flip the pancake onto your plate, pile on top the chopped fruits and then add the honey on top of that.
Sit down and then eat.
This vanilla protein pancake recipe didn’t disappoint either, like most of my other protein pancake recipes I didn’t have to add anymore ingredients in or extra protein powder either.
Sometimes I have to add in extra protein powder to thicken up the pancake batter, this pancake batter was very thick and I had to scrape out the last dollops into the frying pan.
It took about 10 minutes to make too, so a very easy to make protein pancake recipe that doesn’t impact on your time too much.
The taste was great too, the subtle vanilla flavour of the protein pancake with still that slight tartness to it was cancelled out in every mouthful with the two different fruits and the table spoon of organic honey.
Very nice indeed and a great way to start a busy day, try these protein pancakes today!
