Simple Strawberry Protein Pancakes

This is a super simple protein pancake recipe that I whipped up yesterday when I got home from the gym. I wanted to use up some of the strawberries I had in the fridge and also wanted to try and use as little ingredients as possible. I feel like I've gotten SO creative with my recipes, that I'm starting to forget about the good ol' days when I made my pancakes with only protein powder, sweet potato, sweetener and egg. Unfortunately my egg protein powder doesn't cook up as well as my old whey did, so I still have to add in the almond flour to give the cake a little more body.  

The pancake turned out really well and was quite pretty, if I do say so myself!

Strawberry Protein Pancake (soy, dairy & grain free)
Makes 1 large pancake 
  • 1.5 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Vitol Vanilla Egg Protein Powder )
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 large strawberries sliced
  • Cinnamon & stevia to taste
  • 2 tbsp PB2 (peanut butter) mixed with water

 Mix all the ingredients together except for the PB2, set off to the side for topping. Set your stove to medium to medium-low heat, preheat frying pan. Heat will vary depending on the type of stove you are working with. I have a gas stove, so my stove top gets very hot and cooks my food very quick. Once the pan is hot, toss in a small scoop of extra virgin coconut oil to coat the pan. Pour the batter into the pan, cover with lid and cook pancakes for a couple minutes on both sides until golden brown brown, flipping once. Bon Appétit!
