Think pancakes are just for the weekend? Think again, shake up your morning protein routine with this quick ten minute fix. Everyone needs a treat midweek, this is perfect and of course, it’s healthy and healing, bla bla bla, you know me and my food well enough by now!
If you are always in a rush in the mornings throw them into a container with your favourite toppings and munch away for elevenses.
Makes 6 small pancakes
A little sunflower oil for greasing
1 organic egg
Half a cup of non-dairy milk
1/2 scoop protein powder (I used Vega chocolate protein)
3tbsp of buckwheat flour
1/4tsp baking powder
Toppings: try bananas, berries, raw chocolate sauce, coconut yoghurt, homemade apple sauce, maple syrup and granola…
Grease a non-stick frying pan with some sunflower oil and get it on a medium heat so it gets nice and hot.
In your bullet or blender throw in the egg, protein powder, half a cup of milk, buckwheat flour, 1/4tsp baking soda and whizz away until it is smooth and glossy.
Cook your pancakes by pouring a little batter into the hot frying pan. Once the top has bubbled and looks set flip it over. Repeat until all the batter is used up or you have the desired number of pancakes. Which ever comes first.
Top Tip: You can prepare your batter the night before to save even more time in the morning. (Seriously though, how busy are you?)
