i haven't made or eaten protein pancakes in a really long time - i like to get my protein from plain ol' food. you can certainly add a scoop of your fave protein flavor to this recipe if ya like though.
i made a sweet cream (only 15 calories) to go on top using a big dollop of fromage blanc, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and half a packet of stevia. you could also use a few drops of vanilla creme stevia instead of the granules. theeeeen i drizzled the cakes with walden farms caramel sauce (calorie-free, carb-free, gluten-free, etc, etc, etc!!) and dropped a tablespoon of chopped toasted pecans on there. oh and one more shot of cinnamon to make it pretty.
caramel pecan pancakes
- 1/3 cup oat flour (you can buy the flour in the store or just throw your oats in the blender yourself like i did)
- 2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or until your desired consistency)
- 1/2 tsp butter extract
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3-5 drops of vanilla creme stevia or 1 packet or stevia granules
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tbsp fromage blanc or 0% greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp of chopped toasted pecans (you can throw these in the batter or sprinkle on top)
mix thoroughly! in a medium heated pan, cook your cakes (the size is up to you) on one side until you start to see bubbles popping, then flip. top with the fromage sweet cream- the recipe is above! eat. enjoy.
i needed all those good carbs after my workout this morning for sure.
i used 1/2 cup of oats cause i eat a big breakfast and that adds approx. 50 more cals to those stats, fyi.
