• Protein Pancakes

    July 26, 2011

    Good morning! 8-)

    Last night at dinner, either Brittany or Sarah mentioned that they add protein powder to their pancakes. What a great idea!

    Ever since I started training for the New York City Marathon and read over my Marathon Fueling Q & A, I’ve been trying to get more protein in my diet. Protein Pancakes sound like the perfect way to do so!

    Protein Pancakes

    Ingredients:

    • 1/3 cup rolled oats
    • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 
    • 1 ripe banana
    • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder

    Directions:

    1. In a bowl, mix together ingredients.
    2. Preheat a skillet (medium-low heat), spray with non-stick spray, and pour in half of the batter while shaping it into a pancake with a spoon.
    3. Heat until partially cooked and flip pancake.
    4. Once cooked through, top with syrup, nut butter, fresh fruit or anything else your heart desires.

    Makes 2 pancakes

    I topped my Protein Pancakes with Biscoff Spread from my goodie bag at TECHmunch. Holy crap is this stuff amazing! It tastes just like Biscoff cookies! I also drank an iced coffee with soy milk with breakfast.

    Three chefs are being featured on the Food Network using grapes from California to inspire their dishes. The California Grape Commission challenged me and two other food bloggers to videotape our own behind-the-scenes footage to create a vignette that shows the passion of each chef for their craft and quality of ingredients. You can watch all three videos on the Grapes from California Facebook page.

    I really hope you consider voting for my video! It only takes a few seconds, and I would be ever so grateful and love you forever! Please feel free to share this around the web too!

    Question of the Day

    Do you think you get enough protein in your diet? Do you think about it when planning your meals? What are your favorite sources of protein?

    P.S. I am in love with this pug photo!

    Yum! I am totally adding protein powder to my pancakes! My fav source of protein when I’m training is Trader Joes Turkey Jerky! I crave the salt and so it’s a win-win!

    I like to add protein powder to almond or sunflower seed butter. I put the whole jar of whichever nut butter I choose in a large mixing bowl and add a few scoops of protein powder. You have to mix if really well, but it is worth it. It is an excellent way to add more protein to your favorite nut butter.

    I know I get more than enough protein in my diet. I am a vegetarian and I want to make sure that I get my minimal nine servings of fruits and vegetables as well as a lot of low-fat or fat free sources of protein in my diet (and carbs because life without them would be just sad). That being said, I am rather thin, so I sought an expect dietician’s help. I how got between 90-120 grams of protein a day! Definitely more than enough ;)

    Just made these protein pancakes and they were delicous! Sadly I didn’t have any eggs, but I just added a splash of milk to my batter and they came out perfect!
