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.

Marshmallow granola bars…

I don’t know about you, but I often want a snack and I want it to be healthy. So, these Marshmallow granola bars are just the answer! I love a chewy muesli bar but they are often laden with calories and lack nutritional goodness.  With puffed rice as their base and a combination of seeds and fruit mixed through, these bars are delicious!

 Serves 12

Cooking time None! But they do need overnight in the fridge to set!

  • 30g of protein (I used Banana flavour but any flavour will work),
  • 50g of seeds,
  • 20g of dried fruit,
  • 50g of marshmallow fluff (I used a sugar free one; this could be substituted for the same quantity of peanut butter).

Method

  1. Line a baking tin with cling film,
  2. Put all of the ingredients in to a mixing bowl and mix until well combined,
  3. Spoon the mixture in to a baking tray and press until well flattened,

Spiced protein cookies.. 

Fact: I love cookies. End of. When I was at uni.. I used to make all the cookies, whoopee pies and, THE BEST EVER BROWNIE, aka the slutty brownie! 

So, when on my quest to ‘healthify’ my favourite foods, I just had to do so to the humble cookie. 

This recipe is chewy as a cookie should be, yet full of protein! 

To make 10, you will need:

-30g of vanilla protein powder,

-150g of egg whites,

– 20g of coconut sugar, 

– 100g of flour (I used quinoa flour),

– 50g of mixed dried fruit, 

– 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon.

Method: 

Simply combine all of the ingredients until well mixed and then use a serving spoon to take one serving spoon size amount, place on a greased baking tray and spread in to a cookie shape! 
Do that for all ten and then pop in to the oven for 10 minutes!
