Protein Pancakes With Strawberry Sauce
These pancakes are too good to be true. I made the recipe thinking it was going to be an epic fail but to my surprise they were fluffy, light and scrumptious, not to mention healthy!
If I were you I wouldn’t even mention to your kids that these are healthy. They look so devilishly fattening and bad for you, but not on this site sister!
Lets just let them THINK they are bad and full of crap hey…*giggle*
The strawberry sauce is the cherry on the top…only its a strawberry on the top.
The trick to this awesome sauce is peanut butter. I know PnB and strawberries! WTF?! But it works.
I have this thing with nut butter of late and if I can use it in everything, I will. Just you watch me.
This pancake recipe could be doubled quite easily and potentially certain ingredients could be replaced if you are feeling rather creative.
I included a heap of Maca in my first batch but it kind of tasted like smelly feet so I wouldn’t go over board…unless you like the taste of smelly feet.
Just remember that whatever protein powder or superfood powder you add, needs to be neutral in its flavour so it doesn’t overpower the pancakes.
Go on, make your mark and change the recipe to suit your pantry and your taste buds. I dare you!! Double dare! PHYSICAL CHALLENGE!! (again…too much TV!)
- 1/2 Cup Almond Milk (or any milk you prefer)
- 3 Eggs, Free Range from Happy Chooks
- 1 TB Honey, or Maple Syrup or Rice Malt Syrup
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract, unsweetened variety
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour, sifted
- (or 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour and 1/4 Cup Almond Flour)
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 2TB Protein Powder
- (with no flavour to it or it will overpower your pancakes)
- 1 tsp of Lucuma Powder *optional
- Coconut Oil for frying
- 7 Large Strawberries (plus more for garnish)
- 3 TB Peanut Butter
- (Organic, sugar free - quite literally the ingredients should be JUST PEANUTS!)
- 1 TB Maple or Rice Malt syrup or Raw Honey
- 1. Beat the eggs and the milk in a bowl
- 2. Add the sweetener and vanilla and whisk together
- 3. Beat in the rest of the ingredients until it is a nice, smooth, pancake looking mixture and set aside
- 4. Place the sauce ingredients into a blender and mix together until well combined
- 5. Use a fry pan or a crepe pan and on low heat and with oil in the pan, cook spoonfuls of the pancake mixture making them your desired size (I think pikelet size is best)
- 6. Flip when they start to bubble in the centre (be careful not to burn)
- 7. Serve and top with a drizzle of sauce and a strawberry! MMMMmmm....
- If the pancake mixture is a little dry, add a tsp at a time of almond milk but it should be just right if the quantities above are exact. Enjoy!
