Oh boy! You know what I love? Pancakes. I do, I really do! This recipe is a variation from The Fit Bald Man. This recipe is great because not only are you getting your protein and using natural ingredients, BUT THEY ACTUALLY TASTE GOOD!
You will need:
1/2 cup oat flour
1 scoop of Vanilla IdealShake mix (it’s the best choice for protein powder and helps keep you full for hours)
2 tbs unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 apple (chopped into chunks)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbs dark chocolate chips, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1/2 an apple (sliced thin)
2 tbs oatmeal
1 tbs chopped pecans
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Stevia
1 tbs honey
Mix all the pancake ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour spoonfuls on pan that are the size of your palm over medium heat and cook with coconut oil or Pam. Cook each side about 3-5 minutes.
Makes about 4 pancakes.
Topping: Layer the apple slices in an oven safe pot/pan with non stick cooking spray. Mix oatmeal, vanilla, pecans, stevia, cinnamon and honey together and top with the apple slices. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
You can use sugar free maple syrup, or just eat them as is!
Why it’s healthy: IdealShake mix is hunger-blocking and has 11g of protein. The oats are fiber rich and boost heart health, the apple adds fiber and antioxidants, and almond milk contains vitamin E. The whole recipe is low calorie, and the nutrient-packed topping is totally guilt-free!
