Primal Protein Pancakes

Yeah, after a whole week of lean meat and egg whites for breakfast I was a hair short of a complete meltdown this weekend…thankfully, pancakes never fail to make everything–EVERYTHING–better.

I got my tub of Simply Pure Nutrients protein powder in the mail on Friday and ever since I’ve been going positively nuts trying to find every conceivable way to put it in everything–it’s THAT GOOD.  It’s got a coconut base and more fat than your run-of-the-mill protein powder, but I think that’s why it actually tastes good.  Funny how that works.

INGREDIENTS

(Serves 1)

1 1/2 T Coconut Flour

1 scoop Protein Powder (I use Simply Pure Nutrients Pro3 Synergy Fuel)

4 Egg Whites

1/4 t Baking Soda

1/2 t Vanilla

Toppings of Choice

INSTRUCTIONS

Beat your egg whites until frothy.  Add the coconut flour, protein powder, and vanilla and whisk until smooth.  Let stand for 5 minutes.

Heat a *lightly* greased skillet over medium heat.  Pour 1/4 c batter onto skillet, cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes.  Repeat with remaining batter.

For the topping pictured, heat 1/2 c blueberries in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Let cool slightly and pour over pancakes.

  1. I’ll give this a try tomorrow for breakfast! Hey, so does it HAVE to be egg whites?
    I can keep to the egg whites in solidarity though! ;) i could lean out a bit… you know that tummy is hard headed!

    • By all means, use whole eggs! I’m doing the bodybuilding thing so I’m going with just the whites **for now**…make sure you only use 2 whole eggs for this recipe!

    • Hm, I believe it would, but you can try tapioca starch or arrowroot…I’d expect it to be a little on the dry side, though
