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!

I’m moving!! I’m staying in the most divine hotel ever. I love saying “divine”, it makes me feel so much more mature. Haha. Me, mature. Yeahh. We shouldn’t be here more than a week though, then I’m going to stay at my friends house for another week. If we aren’t moved in somewhere by then, we will live at a close family friends house until we do. We’ve (We being my mom, brother, and i) got our eye on the most perfect townhouse. I’d be neighbors with a few friends and in walking distance of a shopping center. The house was just beautiful too. My auto correct just changed beautiful to peanut day. Ok that’s cool. I’ll change it back now.

Anyways, to celebrate the big move I made a mug cake. And it was gooood. I’ve been making so many mug cakes these days, I’ll share two of my recipes.

Chocolate protein mug cake.
1 scoop (Or maybe a little less) chocolate protein powder
1-2 tsp cocoa powder
3 tbs egg whites
A bit of (any kind) milk to even out if needed
1/3 mashed banana
Dash of chocolate pb2 and chia seeds
Cinnamon to taste
Pinch of baking powder
I didn’t add any, but I’m sure raw organic honey or grade a maple syrup would taste good in it.

Pumpkin mug cake.

1/3 cup pumpkin purée
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbs coconut or oat flour or 1/3 mashed banana
3 tbs egg whites
1 tbs maple syrup
Nutmeg
Cinnamon
Pumpkin pie spice
Chia seeds
