As tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday I couldn’t resist doing a little pancake recipe round up! Before I started blogging I only ever ate pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. I’m very glad that I enjoy them far more often now, they are such a great breakfast!

My current favourite pancakes are these simple protein pancakes:

Simple Protein Pancakes (serves 1, makes about 4 small pancakes)

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup egg whites (about 3 egg whites)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used Life’s Basics Unsweetened Vanilla) or experiment with 25 – 30g of wholegrain flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • sweetener if needed (as my protein powder is unsweetened I used 10 drops vanilla stevia)

Combine the egg and egg whites then add the protein powder and baking powder plus sweetener if needed. Heat some coconut oil (or spray oil etc) in a frying pan over a medium high heat and pour out the batter to form small pancakes. Flip when the underside becomes firm and keep warm under the grill until all the batter is used up. I’ve been eating mine with smoky bacon, almond butter and maple syrup, so delicious!

I’m going to enter this little creation into the pancake challenge competition!

Here’s a few of my other favourite pancake recipes, including a few vegan versions, enjoy!

What is your favourite pancake recipe? I’m going to make some traditional crepe style pancakes tomorrow for James, its also his birthday so I think we may have to get some nutella to make them extra treat worthy! Will you be having pancakes tomorrow?
