Pimp Your Protein Pancakes

You can pimp your protein pancakes with bacon, blueberries, maple syrup! I said it..bacon! What? Bacon?


Bacon, blueberries and maple syrup!

I said it..bacon! What? Bacon?  It’s on the banned list, isn’t it? Well not in my book! Nutella should be on the banned list too but it’s not! I rest my case. 

Bacon, if organic and local is a great source of protein and when drizzled with maple syrup and blueberries it’s just incredible. Ummm! ?

So I know blueberries are not in season and the best maple syrup is from Canada but it’s a day that happens once a year so let’s not get our knickers in a twist!

You could stew apples with cinnamon or pears with pomegranate syrup and sprinkle pistachios but somehow I don’t think you will.

So give this recipe a go:

In a large bowl mix together:

  • One cup of milk –  your choice – make sure it’s organic 
  • 2 eggs, again organic 
  • 2 dessert spoons of coconut oil

Whisk together:

  • 3/4 cup of ground almonds
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 ground flax seeds
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • I tsp cinnamon

If the mixture needs more liquid then just add appropriately so it’s a thick runny consistency. 

Whisk the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in a blender and slowly pour out onto a hot pan with coconut oil. Flip away and top with the following…

Pimp your protein pancake with the following supplements:

  • Turmeric: Beat that inflammation down with a tsp of turmeric in the mix
  • Balance those moods with Mrs Maca powder: don’t overdo it, a pinch is enough
  • Cinnamon: a tsp of this in the mix will cut your sugar cravings for the evil Nutella
  • Raw honey: drizzle this on top for a dose of goodness!
  • Berries: A pool of polyphenols the food for your good bacteria making your gut a happy place!
  • Protein powder: Protein has been proven to create saiety in the morning! Pancakes, therefore, are a perfect problem solver!
