Chocolate Protein Pancakes
I dunno why but Sunday is pancake day for me. But since I started taking my fitness and nutrition seriously I had to dump the traditional style pancake. My usual Sunday morning pancake is usually made with buckwheat flour and oats, but today I decided to try a different kind. It was very simple and easy to make:
6 egg whites
1 pack of quaker instant oats
2 scoops chocolate flavor whey protein powder
Simply blend all the ingredients until smooth. Unfortunately in Japan, non-stick cooking spray has not caught on, so instead I used a tablespoon of canola oil to coat my non stick pan. Then simply cook like a normal pancake.
As a topping I used 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.The texture really reminded me of a traditional pancake, and I was more than pleased with the flavor. All in all you can still be healthy while having a comfort food such as pancakes. It was an enjoyable treat after my morning cardio workout.
