3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes…

Telling someone that you’re having pancakes for breakfast sounds super unhealthy (not that having that sometimes is a bad thing)! They’re often laden with syrups, cream, toppings of all sorts (if you’ve been to the Pancake house at Centre Parcs, you’ll have seen allllll the topping options) and made with butter, full fat milk/buttermilk and your bog-standard flour. HOWEVER, having a healthy pancake breakfast is such a simple task.. there really is no excuse.

My go to zoats recipe…

If you love adding volume to your breakfast, then you will LOVE zoats.

I am a massive lover of adding volume to my food to make something so tasty last even longer and zoats do just that! This is the most basic idea yet is super tasty, will keep you full for a nice, long time and can be done in SO many different ways. So, basically, go grab a courgette!

What are they?

They are quite simply a mix of courgette and oats.. sounds strange, right? And, I was dubious to start off with but now I’m, quite simply, obsessed.

I specifically like pro-zoats; adding a bit more protein in to my meal to keep me satisfied for even longer.
The basic recipe:
– half a grated courgette,
– a serving of oats (change this to suit your needs; I use Nutriseed Superfood oats and they are delicious),
– a teaspoon of cinnamon,
– 250ml of liquid (I, more often than not, use water),
To make pro-zoats add in:
– a scoop of protein of choice,
– egg whites (I use two chicks products)
To make the basic recipe, combine all of the ingredients and microwave until they are of a nice, thick consistency (around 3 minutes).
If using egg whites, add the whites in after 2 minutes, mix, and microwave for a further minute. Then, when ready, stir in the protein powder and eat.
Different flavour options:
1. Chai Spiced; simply add in cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, ginger and cardamon to your mix. I’ve topped it with a plum compote.

 2. Chocolate zoats; add in some nutriseed Cacao powder and cacao nibs,

 3. Beetroot and Vanilla zoats; grate in some raw beetroot when you grate in the courgette and add in vanilla essence.

4. Simple cinnamon:

Breakfast Apple Pies…

If you don’t like apple pie, then I’m sorry, but I think you’re crazy!!

Ingredients:

For the pies:

– 50g of egg whites,

– 1 tablespoon of sweetener,

– 1 scoop of cinnamon, vegan protein,

Method:

1. Start by preheating the oven to 160C and lining a muffin tray (I made 9),

2. Simply combine all of the pie ingredients until well combined,

3. Using a teaspoon, put 2 teaspoons worth in each case and then press the mixture around the edge of the case,

4. Pop in the oven and cook for 15 minutes or until golden,

5. Once the pies are out of the oven, take them out of the tray and place them on a cooling rack to cool,

6. Meanwhile, dice the apples, mix with cinnamon and then pop in to the microwave for 1 and a half minutes,

7. Finally, spoon a teaspoon of yogurt, followed by a teaspoon of apple in to each case!

8. ENJOY!

Lemon and Poppy Seed loaf… 

Most of my recipes are chocolate based, so this week I decided to challenge myself to a loaf cake that is a chocolate alternative yet just as tasty! So, combining my love of the refreshing taste of lemon and the crunch of granola, my Lemon and Poppy seed protein loaf was born! This healthy take on a classic cake, really is a great, light option for breakfast or as an afternoon snack!

 

Ingredients:

For the cake:

For the icing:

Method:

  1. Grease and line a loaf tin and turn your oven on to 160C,
  2. Mix together all of the loaf ingredients until well combined and then pour them in to your prepared tin.
  3. Pop the loaf in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Take the loaf out of the oven and then the tin and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
  5. Once the cake has cooled, simply mix together the yogurt and casein icing ingredients and then spread on top of your cake! Sprinkle over the granola!
  6. ENJOY!

P-P-P-Pancakes.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that I LOVE pancakes.. especially a big stack on a Saturday (stackurday)! So, I just had to share my staple recipe with you all!

You will need:

  • 50g of egg whites,
  • 50ml of liquid (I vary between fruit juice, coconut water, dairy and non-dairy milks etc),
  • 1 teaspoon of sweetener (I use natvia or truvia, you could use any that you fancy),
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder,
  • 15g of protein powder (any flavour and type of choice),
  • 10g of casein protein (I use Neat Nutrition as it is THE best),
  • 25g of flour (remember that coconut and almond flour are more absorbant so will require more liquid).
  • Optional add ins; superfoods (maca powder, beetroot powder, matcha powder), chocolate chips or cacao nibs, raisins or other dried fruit, granola and obviously cacao powder!
  • Toppings; go crazy! I love chocolate sauces (cacao powder, yogurt and sweetener mixed together), peanut butter, caramel, Musclefood sugar free syrups or just a simple layer of yogurt!

Method:

  1. In a bowl whisk together your egg whites and liquid until the mixture has doubled in size and is nice and fluffy!
  2. Whisk in to the egg whites, the sweetener and baking powder.
  3. Now add in the rest of the ingredients, continuing to whisk until they are well combined.
  4. Leave the mix to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Now grease your frying pan and heat the pan on a medium heat.
  6. Drop a tablespoons worth of mix in to the pan; cook on one side for three minutes and then flip and cook on the other for around 2 minutes!
  7. Keep doing this until you have a mighty stack!
  8. Now go toppings crazy and ENJOYYYY!
