“I mean, what’s not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!”

Protein pancake

Last Friday we were invited to a wedding. A very good friend of mine got married, and the bride looked amazing! She was always pretty, but in the last couple of months she was working out frequently and was following a special diet to get her body toned. And she did a great job! As my exams are getting closer and closer at the fitness instructor course, I feel like my muscles are getting smaller and smaller. So I decided to follow the bride’s advice and will try to take protein shake after the workouts to help my muscles grow.

As it tastes a bit weird and very unnatural, I did some research and found a lot of recipes using protein powder as an ingredient. Here comes the first try, my very first protein pancakes. They are very delicious, cannot wait to try other recipes as well.

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 1/2 c oatmeal flour (or ground oatmeal)
  • 2 c milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 scoop (25 g)  or 4 tbs of protein powder (in my case vanilla)
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • 1 tbs olive oil

Filling:

  • 1 1/2 c light cottage cheese
  • 1 banana

Mix the oatmeal flour, the protein powder and the baking soda until well combined, then add the eggs, oil and the milk to the blender. I could make 6 pancakes of this portion. Well, I could make only 5, as at the beginning I didn’t put oil in the dough so my first attempt looked like this:

For the filling, smash the banana and mix it with the cottage cheese.

One pancakes including the filling contains in total 233 kcal and 15,5 g protein. One pancake without the filling would be 176 kcal and 10 g protein.
