This series of blog posts will provide you with different ways of consuming protein powder supplements (both whey and casein)…
…without having to choke down a lumpy, chalky shake of protein powder and water.
Throughout my own fitness journey, I have gotten rather creative with my protein recipes and have definitely had some failures (in which I will NOT be sharing, don’t worry). These recipes will be simple and will use easy ingredients that you will most likely have on hand.
Now let me start by saying that my protein pancakes don’t always come out like nice round discs of heaven.
Many times they come out like a giant mush pile that looks like…well…not pancakes.
This recipe has been tried and tested a few times.
We are good to go here.
Peanut Butter Coconut Protein Pancakes
• A full (like overflowing) 1/3 cup steel cut (or quick cooking) oats
• 3 Tbsp Almond Milk
• 2 Egg Whites
• 1 Scoop Protein Powder (Vanilla or Cookies n Cream would work best)
• 1 tsp melted coconut oil
Blend ingredients together until a batter-like consistency.
Shouldn’t really have any lumps.
Preheat frying pan to medium-high.
Pour the batter in a frying pan (I cook one at a time because I’m weird).
Cook for about 30 seconds, should flip easily. If not, wait another few seconds until able to easily move around in pan.
Cook until golden brown on each side.
Top with PEANUT BUTTER, low sugar (or sugar free) maple syrup, coconut shreds, and a sliced banana.
And let me know how they work for you!
PS- Here’s a cool cookbook all about cooking with Whey Protein!
