Vanilla Protein Pancakes

I've been LOVING this recipe because it is almost purely protein and fiber to keep your blood sugar stable and feel fuller longer. Most pancakes are just processed carbohydrates that spike up your blood sugar and soon after crash. This results in more carb cravings, inflammation, and often that stubborn belly fat.

This recipe gives you that pancake satisfaction while building muscle and keeping up your metabolism. My favorite part is that it is only 3 main ingredients!

Also, you can use any protein powder you like but it may change the consistency, taste, or overall end result. The protein powder I used gives a really nice creamy vanilla taste and is full of high quality whey protein.


Ingredients:

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

1 Tbsp. psyllium husk powder

1 egg

1/3 cup water


Directions. mix all ingredients together until you get a smooth and runny batter.

Preheat a skillet over medium/low heat. You may want to spray with non-stick cooking spray. Wait until the pan is fully preheated (if you splash water the water should bead up and roll around. If it steams up the pan is not warm enough yet).

Pour batter into 4-5 equal pancake rounds. Do not touch until you see bubbles start to surface on the top. Then, flip each pancake and cook for 1 minute or until golden brown.


Top with butter, syrup, berries, or whatever you like!


Based on the ingredients I used this recipe came out to about 200 calories and 26 grams of protein for 5 small pancakes!
