Easy Protein Pancake Recipe

So here we have it my first ever recipe post..go easy on me ;)! As promised from this post  here i mentioned that i was going to start adding some healthy eating recipes to my blog, i had such a great response and this was the most requested one, so lets get into it.

These protein pancakes only consist of a few ingredients so it makes it super quick and easy to prepare before work or the gym, they are crazily filling and manage to keep me full till lunchtime which is great as it stops me from snacking. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so may as well make it a tasty filling one!
These Protein Panckes are especially effective after or before a workout to help build that lean muscle and repair it.

You Will Need 

Shopping Basket
1 Cup - of Oats
1 1/2 Cup - of Egg Whites
2 scoops - of your chosen whey protein powder (i use a My Protein one in Chocolate Peanut Butter flavour..its delicious) this determines the flavour of your pancakes.
Low calorie cooking spray (to stop the pancake from sticking)

Frying Pan
Blender or Whisk

Pancake Toppings (optional)
Fruit of your choice (i like to use raspberries, blueberries and bananas)
Yogurt - Greek, Low fat Vanilla or any other flavours
Peanut Butters - Almond, Peanut, Cashew (I'm using The Protein Works Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Butter its absolutely amazing, and you get a massive tub of it for just £11.99!) 
or anything else that takes your fancy..go crazy its the fun bit :).

This recipe makes 6 big pancakes (and more if you want them smaller -no duh)

Step - 1
Add 1 1/2 cups of egg whites to your blender (or large bowl) i didn't have any liquid egg whites around so i separated the whites from a pack of large 6 eggs. 

Step - 2
Add your 1 cup of oats 

Step - 3
 Add 2 scoops of your chosen protein powder, then give everything a quick blast in the blender to mix it all together (or whisk till everything is nicely mixed) and pour mixture into a jug

Step - 4
 Spray some cooling oil on your pan to prevent sticking, on a medium heat. Then pour in your mixture depending on how big you want them, let them lightly bubble in the middle before using your spatula to flip them over they only need about 1min 30 each side id say.

Then once you've done all 4 steps, go crazy with your toppings and tuck in ..sweet sweet bon appetite!
