Healthy Eating: High Protein Pancakes (with Quest powder!)

by jaime on March 20, 2015

Hey guys, I’ve missed you!

The last few months have been a blur – I’m training for a fitness competition (yes – it’s crazy!) and that has taken up almost all of my time. Lots of working out, meal preps and carb deprived emotional fits.

But it’s not all bad. I’ve been impressed and elated with what I can do with my body. And, because I love cooking, I can get creative with my food!

I’ve been posting actively on Instagram (like, REALLY actively.) but wanted to share this recipe here for two reasons:

1. It’s good. Surprisingly good!
2. I still use my Italian meatball recipe as my own personal reference when I’m cooking, so I wanted to give myself a reference here too.

These pancakes were crazy filling and surprisingly delicious. I didn’t have really high hopes going in – I haven’t had pancakes in a while, so I didn’t have too much riding on this – but they were fluffy, yummy and sweet!

High Protein Pancakes – 225 calories per serving!

Pancake batter:
1 scoop Quest Powder – Multipurpose
(it’s unsweetened, so keep that in mind)
1 tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp Stevia in the Raw sweetener
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 cup water

Topping:
5 small strawberries
1 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter
1/4 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp Stevia in the Raw
1 tbsp water

Directions:
Mix together pancake batter ingredients. The batter should be moist and really light.

While you’re heating up your pan, microwave your coconut oil until turned to liquid (obviously skip this step if it’s unnecessary), then mix in the PB2, Stevia and water. It should be a very thin, liquid consistency.

Make pancakes as you normally would, then add strawberries (or any fruit you’d prefer) on top of each layer of pancakes.
