Protein Pancakes

Put a plate of pancakes in front of me...poof! They're gone. 

Then..the endless guilt and food comma overtakes me. Protein pancakes are the perfect answer. 

I Absolutely love protein pancakes, they are warm and bready and then once I top them off with sunflower butter they're golden. the best thing about these guys is that there isn't one way to make them, I almost always have everything for one of the variations! 

INGREDIENTS

UNO

  1. 1/2 banana
  2.  1/4 cup egg whites
  3. 1 scoop protein powder
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder

DOS

  1.  1 egg
  2. 2 egg whites
  3. 1 banana
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder

TRES

  1. 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  2. 1/2 scoop protein powder
  3. 1/2 cup egg whites
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder

DIRECTIONS ARE ALL THE SAME - mash everything in a bowl & cook like a normal pancake. I always always ALWAYS add cinnamon & vanilla to the mix and sprinkles are a go to when feeling the slightest bit festive. 

TOPPINGS: Sunflower butter is a MUST in my book and if I used half the naner in the mix, I'll Use the other half for the toppings. 

Treat these like normal cakes, want some blueberries or Choco chips? Throw em on in! Want to make a smilie face or Top it all off with Whipped Cream - Go for IT! 

The protein pancake is your canvas - dive on in. 

Avo toast

I'm guilty as charged and have fallen on the avo toast train...actually addicted. My breakfast isn't truly satisfying unless I have a slab of carb smothered in mashed avocado and sprinkled with red pepper flakes & salt. *Extra bonus: an over easy egg to let all of your food porn dreams come true.  

When I'm feeling lazy, an egg surrounded in a pool of egg whites is simple enough to tickle all of my tastebuds.

My true go to is the far left, slightly Christmas looking breaky.  Its as simple as saute, crack, pour & cover. 

[Saute onions, mushroom, spinach tomatoes. Make a well in the middle and crack the egg. Pour egg whites around the egg/over the veggies. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes - depending on the preference of your egg].
