Red Velvet Protein Pancakes

I have died and gone to red velvet heaven. Has anyone tried the Red Velvet Cake Batter Protein Powder from Cellucor? I just ordered a few of their products and I am hooked. They have flavors from Red Velvet Cake Batter, to Mint Chip, to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.. You name it, it's delicious! 

Well, here we are again on my path to fun and healthy eating and if you're interested in that as well, you're going to love these. They have a soft, fluffy texture and a velvety-sweet taste that will leave you feeling full and satisfied- without the guilt of eating "real" pancakes after a workout. 

Did you know I decorate cookies, cupcakes and cakes too? Check out the "My Favorite Creations" tab in the menu bar to see some of my best desserts yet. 

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 Cup Gluten-free rolled oats, blended to a flour

1 ripe banana (or 1/2 Cup unsweetened applesauce)

1 Scoop Cellucor Red Velvet Cake Batter

1 egg white

2 Tbsp almond milk

1/2 tsp cocoa powder (optional)

1/2 tsp baking powder

4 drops of red food coloring (optional)

For the topping. I used 2 Tbsp 0% Greek Yogurt and some extra cocoa powder

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place all ingredients except for your topping in a blender (I use my Nutribullet) and blend until combined. LET SIT FOR AT LEAST 2-3 MINUTES. This step is very important!! The oat flour must absorb the liquids to make a thick, fluffy pancake. 

2. Heat your griddle or pan and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Pour a small (or large!) amount of the batter into the pan for about 3-4 minutes or once you see bubbles. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Place on a plate and top with any topping of your choice. Enjoy!

Protein Packed Ezekiel French Toast

I have been on a french toast/pancake kick lately and I could not be happier! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Actually, if I could, I would eat Fruity Pebbles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, I have tried that before and I got a tummy ache. SO- I have created some amazing breakfast recipes that will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

INGREDIENTS:

2 pieces of Ezekiel Bread (I used Low Sodium)

2 egg whites

1/4 Cup almond milk

1/2 scoop protein powder (I used Iso-100 Birthday Cake Whey Protein)

1 tsp cinnamon

 

DIRECTIONS:

Heat a griddle pan and spray with a non-stick spray.

In a cup or nutribullet, mix egg whites, almond milk, protein powder and cinnamon until combined. Pour mixture into a bowl or paper plate. Dip both pieces of bread into the mixture for about 20 seconds per side. The bread should be fully soaked.  

Cook each side of bread until light brown (about 3-4 minutes.) Top with any toppings you'd like (Like my PB2 drizzle pictured below!)

What's your favorite topping for french toast?
