Its so hard to type right now because I’m on my extremely cracked phone. I stupidly put it on top of my locker and then I leaned down to get my backpack and the next thing I know..

My poor baby 😦

Cheered myself up with some protein pancakes! Here are two of my favorite pancake recipes..

Chocolate banana protein pancakes

1/2 mashed banana
1.5 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 tbs egg whites
1-2 tsp cocoa powder
Cinnamon
Pinch baking powder
Cook like normal pancakes, I love topping this with cinnamon, nuts, and my chocolate cream which is just chocolate protein powder mixed with a little water and sometime pb2.

Cottage cheese protein pancakes

2 egg whites
1/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup oat flour
Nutmeg
Cinnamon
Pumpkin pie spice
Pinch baking soda
A bit of milk to even it out if needed

Or you can replace some of the flour with pumpkin purée or mashed banana or a little bit of both 🙂 This won’t come out like a normal batter but it’s delicious cooked like a pancake. I suggest cooking these smaller pancakes, it would probably fall apart if you did a big one.
I love to top these with pear butter and pumpkin pie spice.
Enjoy!

Don’t judge. I’m in love.

Like oh mer gawd.

This morning I had just realized I couldn’t remember the last time I had pancakes. That was unnacptable. SO i made some paleo pancakes. AND THEY WERE DELICIOUS. It’s weird, that was probably my biggest meal in a while (I definitely had more than pictured…) but I haven’t felt this fit and amazing in so long! Well..Before I continued to eat like a million more pancakes. Now I just feel like a stuffed whale.

The recipe is so simple!

Makes 4-5 Small/Medium sized pancakes

Ingredients

1 cup almond meal/flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 Banana

Cinnamon to taste

1/2 Teaspoon almond extract (Or lemon extract. Optional)

4 tbs egg whites

1 tbs sunflower seed butter

1 tbs almond butter

3 tbs almond or coconut milk

Directions

Heat up your pan thing with some olive oil

Mix the almond meal, milk, baking soda, extract, 1/2 banana, and if you want some extra almond butter to taste

Seperate bowl, whisk the egg whites including lots of air in the whisking (This makes the pancakes fluffy!)

Mix the egg whites and other stuff together

Make like normal pancakes!

I topped mine with sun butter, almond butter, cinnamon, and the other half of the banana. I probably would have down a honey (Organic, raw) drizzle too but I couldn’t find any! Still tasted great too. If you want you could add some nutmeg to the mix too!

I ate this sitting next to my brother who was eating Krispy Kreme doughnuts. With these babies, I wasn’t even tempted.

My dad tried a pancake and loved it which made my day! I don’t think I’ve ever heard him actually compliment something healthy before. …I’m not even sure if he’s ate something healthy before. I kid, I kid. Kind of.
