Protein packed vanilla blueberry pancakes

Posted by on

January always seems to come with new goals to eat better and live better. Although, better doesn’t necessarily mean starve yourself, give up all carbs, be unhappy, lose a ton of weight, which will be impossible to keep off.  You don’t have to give up good food. You can still enjoy those yummy pancakes! This recipe is protein packed. It’s made with wheat flower, greek yogurt, fresh fruit and of course some good clean vanilla. Don’t give up the good stuff just make smarter choices!

 

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour

 2 scoops vanilla protein powder

 1 tbsp baking powder

 ½ tsp Celtic sea salt

 1 ⅓ cups milk of choice. I use vanilla almond milk

 2 tbsp plain non-fat Greek yogurt

 1 cage free egg white

 2 tsp Tongan/vodka Vanillapura extract

 ½ pint fresh blueberries you can use frozen as well

 

Instructions: Serves 4

-In a large bowl whisk together the flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt.

-In a smaller bowl whisk together the milk, Greek yogurt, egg white, and vanilla extract

-Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together until smooth

-Gently fold the blueberries into the pancake batter with a rubber spatula

-Using a 1/4 cup measurer, add the batter to a hot prepared non-stick griddle or skillet

-Cook the pancakes on the first side until small bubbles form on top, then flip over and cook on the other side for another couple minutes. Place 3 pancakes on a plate and enjoy

Notes: You can serve pancakes as is or you can reserve some of the fresh blueberries from the batter and use them to make a blueberry sauce by packing them in a sauce pan and heating slowly until softened and slightly thick. Just top your pancakes with a couple tbsp. of fruit and serve.
