Green Protein Pancakes
These are my absolute favourite. I'd have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if it were socially acceptable. To be honest I am not a huge vegetable person first thing in the morning so these are a good way to ensure I am still sneaking some greens in at the start of my day.
- 2 eggs
- 1x serve protein powder (I use nuzest clean lean protein)
- 1/2 banana (optional)- see note
- 1T cacao nibs (optional)
- Yoghurt & Blueberries (for topping)
Chuck the eggs, spinach, protein powder & banana (if using) in a blender and blend until you have a batter like consistency. At this stage you may need to add a little bit of water to thin it a bit.
Heat a frying pan with a little bit of coconut oil or butter. Pour half the batter into the pan. Sprinkle cacao nibs over the top (if using). Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface. Turn and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes or until the pancakes are cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with yoghurt and blueberries- Or anything you desire!
Note: The banana is optional, I often don't put it in as I would prefer to eat the banana seperately but that's just me & they do taste 100x nicer with it included! You can also omit the protein powder if you prefer, just sub with a couple of tablespoons of almond meal. If you aren't using the protein powder, you will definitely need the banana for flavour!
