On this new journey of eating healthy and trying to avoid flour in my life, which is much harder than one would expect. I have come to rely on Pinterest for all my easy recipe needs. I do try the recipes I pin. That’s the whole point right?!
Well, it’s Veteran’s Day and we are off of school. (Thank you for all who served our country well.) The girls were eating pancakes and I really wanted some, without all the calories and fat. I looked up on my Pinterest wall and found protein pancakes. The pancakes made some promises online that I was unsure they could hold up.
1/4 cup egg whites ( two large egg whites)
1 scoop of Vanilla Shakeology (Need some really great protein? Shop here: http://www.shakeology.com/jennie81)
1/2 ripe mashed banana (You can also use unsweetened applesauce)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS almond milk or milk
1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
Mash up the banana first. Make sure it is ripe. Throw everything else into the batter. It will be a thicker batter. Heat up your griddle to a low setting as these burn easily. Cook, eat and enjoy. They are filling. They do have a different taste to them as you are not using flour, but protein powder. If you are expecting a perfect fake-off pancake, forget it. This one is not for you. This is a great sub for a regular pancake. It’s healthy for you too.
The Verdict: a great sub for a pancake 🙂
