Effortless Protein Pancakes

I spend a lot of money on food. Anyone who knows me will vouch for my sometimes exorbitant spending on food, rather than clothing or make-up. Needless to say, I love to eat. I enjoy trying new dishes, even though my body is sensitive to many popular ingredients like dairy, chillies, tomatoes, and seafood.

I’ve had to cut down on a lot of delicious food for the sake of having good skin, and a settled stomach. But every now and again, I indulge in a forbidden food group and savour every lingering taste.

When I stumbled across the following protein pancake recipe, compiled by Amanda Millie, I not only acquainted myself with a like-minded soul, but also discovered what would be my post-workout meal for a very long time.

Amanda Millie is a London-based Actress, Fitfluential Ambassador, and Presenter, who also loves blogging. She’s an avid lover of life, travel and real food, so naturally, we get along. More often than not, Amanda posts marvelled photos of her delicious, recent meals on Instagram. They’re pretty amazing – if you’re a fan of healthy eating. And that’s where I saw the pancakes, drizzled with mango puree and garnished with berries. They only require three ingredients, and take about 15 minutes to prepare, overall. This is definitely a recipe that I can work with, and better yet, perfect.

Check out Amanda’s original protein pancake recipe, here. After many breakfast and snack-time pancakes, I’m happy to announce that I’m a bit of an expert. I have modified the recipe a bit to add milk and honey.

Ingredients:

Optional :

  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ¼ cup of almond milk

Fry in Coconut Oil

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Preparation:

  1. Preheat a non-stick pan on low to medium heat. I use a gas stove so the heat level is always a bit tricky, but this means that I can still fry pancakes during load shedding.
  2. Mash banana, and mix with egg whites and protein powder. At this point, the mixture will begin to look stiff and thick, which is usually when I add some almond milk. Mix until you have a consistency that is thick, yet easy to pour into the pan.
  3. Be sure to add the coconut oil to the pan right before you begin frying, otherwise the coconut oil will burn and smoke.
  4. Cook for three to five minutes, while flipping on either side with a spatula.
  5. Once both sides have turned golden brown, it’s ready to serve!

Drizzle with honey or any other preferred toppings. View more scrumptious food pics and recipe ideas by Amanda Millie on Instagram.
