Amanda’s Protein & Oat Pancakes

22 Nov

This post comes from my sick bed, where I have been for the past 2 days. 😦 I contracted a stomach bug but all is fine – just need to keep hydrated, eat bland (come at me white bread!) and I should be fine in a day or so.

Now, even though I can eat an abundance of white bread and crackers at the moment, the only thing I REALLY want are these gorgeous, fluffy pancakes. They are so devine. One day I ate them for breakfast AND dinner… DON’T YOU DARE JUDGE ME!

I’ve fooled around with a few different recipes but they were never quite right. So I made some of my own changes and came up with these.

The trick is in the protein powder – you really have to get a nice tasting protein powder. I use Gaspari Myofusion in Milk Chocolate and it is DELICIOUS. You can buy it from BMB Supplements. Enter in the code “mevsbulge” and get 10% off any products til 1st February 2012! 😉

These can pack quite a calorie punch though – about 500 calories (and an amazing 55g of protein!) if you have them with the yoghurt and berries but you can remove the oats and use only egg whites to make them lighter.

Ingredients

1 scoop protein powder
1/2 cup dry, uncooked instant oats
1/4 low fat cottage cheese
3 egg whites
1 whole raw egg

Add everything to a bowl.

Stir well or blend for a smoother consistency.

Pour into a non-stick pan on low-medium heat. Meanwhile, heat up your grill.

Wait a few mins for bubbles to form…

Then stick it under the grill for a few minutes. I do this because it is too big and awkward to flip over without breaking!

Add a tablespoon of natural yoghurt and a few berries… And voila!

Yum!

Hope you guys enjoy – let me know what you think! 🙂

    I’ve been messing around with protein pancakes for a while but they always taste so bland (I think this is because I use a natural, unflavoured WPI). Yours look great though, will give them a try!

    Wowzers – no wonder you struggle to eat it, that’s massive!!!

    Kate, flavoured protein makes a bit of difference, I also add a dash of vanilla extract to my version, and 1/2 tsp of xylitol for sweetness

    Looks like a nice recipe! I might have to try and recreate it (unless you want to send some up to me on the Sunshine Coast? Lol!).

    A recipe I have discovered is banana, egg and protein powder whizzed up and poured into muffin trays and baked. Not exactly the buttery banana bread we are used to but works when the devil on my shoulder is screaming for naughty, fatty carbs (as it does at the worse times) and the angel knows I need protein and bananas (even tho I don’t like bananas)

    Any ideas of a substitue for the oats for a gluten free version?

    • Amanda February 29, 2012 at 9:46 am #

      Hey Petra! Have a read of this: http://www.freedomfoods.com.au/healthy-stuff/Oats-and-Gluten-Free-Diet.aspx

      Maybe it is an option for you to purchase GF oats?

        I am going to try gluten free oats when I can find them in the supermarket here but today I made this with Bob Mills GF Hot Cereal (brown rice, corn, buckwheat, and sorghum) and it was pretty good – couldn’t finish it though!

        Yummo! That sounds delicious!!

    Hi Amanda. I am undertaking an experiment to find out if protein powder can be used by the body for my eventual weight loss attempt I know it is probably hard to judge but do you think that it helps or is there some suspision that it does nothing, I am hopeful that it does but reserved. Pancakes look lovely!
