The Perfect Berry Protein Pancake

I could eat one of these for breakfast every morning. Not only are they guilt free but they are one of the few morning meals that will keep me full until lunch time.

This recipe makes one large pancake, which is one serve, although you could make multiple smaller sized pancakes also

For one large pancake (this entire recipe) the nutritional values are as follows: 268 calories, 9g carbs (6g which are fibre!), 14.1 g fat and 25g protein, making this pancake a perfectly balanced morning breakfast. Please note the nutritional values will change depending on what type of protein powder and milk you use, the values are calculated with the products I used.




Berry Protein Pancake
Serves 1

Ingredients

1 egg
1 scoop strawberry protein powder (I used Bsc Hydroxy low carb variety, but you could also use vanilla)
1 tbsp flaxmeal
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tbs almond meal
3-4 tbs almond milk (or soy or regular milk)
2 tbsp mixed frozen berries (I just used raspberries) + extra to serve
6 drops liquid stevia (1 tbsp granulated stevia)

Instructions

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl

2. Spray a small fry pan with coconut oil and heat over high heat. Once the pan is very hot, reduce the heat to low-medium and empty the contents of the bowl into the pan, spreading the mixture into a pancake shape. Cook on this side until golden brown, 3-5 minutes and then flip, cooking this side for 3-5 minutes also.



3. Remove from pan and sprinkle with a few extra berries. Enjoy!
