Pancake Tuesday!

panxakes 3

Hello guys! Hope you all are well? Ive decided to try some protein pancakes for the first time today in honour of the best holiday ever – Pancake Tuesday! I was a little sceptical at first because I love my pancakes especially smothered in Nutella and strawberries, but, I thought since I’m trying to be more conscious of what I’m eating I would given them a test run.

Honestly, to my surprise,  they tasted delicious! definitely one to add to the breakfast/lunch menu in future, and they are so easy to make. They would also make a great snack to eat cold. I also decided to try make a healthy version of Nutella from Deliciously Ella’s blog. But, quite frankly I’m not too sure about that one. I just think its going to be so hard to beat the creamy chocolatey taste of Nutella, but hey, it was worth a shot!

For the Pancakes

25g of porridge oats

1 egg

1 banana

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

This mixture makes roughly about three small pancakes. Just add everything to a blender and fry them on the pan.

For the Nutella

2 packets of hazelnuts

1 cup maple syrup

3 tablespoons of raw cacao powder

water

Toast the hazelnuts in your oven for about 10 minutes, then let cool. Add them to your mixer and blend them up until they form a gritty powder. Add the maple syrup and cacao powder and mix together. Add half a cup of water until the mixture begins to smooth.

Let me know how your pancakes turn out!

Take Care,
