Hey guys, I’ve been experimenting with my pancakes. I don’t think any pancake I make has ever been the same. I’m always trying something new; adding something, tweaking something, finding new supplements to add.
I’ve been trying to get more holistic with my choice of protein powder and through my exploration, I’ve settled on a couple of plant based protein powders on the market. One is Garden of Life and the other is Amazing Green.
Amazing Green protein I find to be more expensive and less protein per serving. Garden of Life protein I find to be good and the great thing about both of these products is their manufacturing practices. You don’t have to worry about all the garbage that most products on the market have in them.
These products are Organic and plant based. Also great for Vegan diets. I still use some of Amazing Green’s other products though as I seek the perfect balance of nutrition, taste and value.
Anyhow, check out my latest pancake recipe:
1/4 cup Trader Joes Whole Grain pancake mix
1 Scoop Garden of Life Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Teaspoon Spirulina
1 Scoop Amazing Grass Amazing Trio (Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Alfalfa)
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Raw Local Honey (mine from Bay Area company Marshall’s Farms)
1 Tablespoon Organic Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground Chia and ground Flax
Hand full crumbled Walnuts or Pecans (Optional)
Hand full of Blueberries
Unsweetened Almond Milk & Coconut Milk Mix (I don’t measure. I just pour until I get a nice creamy consistency)
As you can tell, I don’t count calories and this meal should keep you satisfied for a long period of time. Not only that, but it’s nutrient dense.
Mix all the ingredients together until blended well. Heat a pan to a mild temperature. Pour batter into the pan and heat until bubbles around the edges and they begin to pop before flipping over. Trial and error to get that perfect shape and pancake color you want. Good luck!
