Blueberry protein pancakes





Last weekend, I made some of the most awesome blueberry protein pancakes. These are maybe the closest I've come to making a protein pancake that has the texture, taste, and perfect golden brown of the real thing. The recipe is based off the chocolate protein pancakes I made last week, with some little tweaks. I used a protein blend, which usually makes a thicker batter than whey or whey isolate protein. To make the pancakes, if you swap out the protein powder below, use a blend or a casein protein, otherwise reduce the amount of milk so you can still get the right thickness in the pancake batter.

3 scoops Phase8 by Muscletech protein powder, available here
3/4 cup quinoa flour
1 cup liquid egg whites
1 cup milk (you can use regular milk, or almond/coconut/soymilks would also work)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp stevia for taste
1/4-1/2 cup of fresh blueberries (optional)

Mix the dry ingredients together, add the liquid egg whites. Add milk 1/4 cup at a time until you get the desired thickness of a pancakes batter, fold in blueberries to batter. Cook over low-medium heat until golden brown.

Makes 2 servings

Blueberries are about 80 calories a cup, and mostly carbohydrates, so depending on your training plan and goals feel free to add as many or as little as you would like! Enjoy!
