For those of you looking for a healthier alternative option this Pancake Day, look no further, this recipe is not only a healthier option but it also tastes great too. I've been cooking these pancakes for years now, as a breakfast meal after the gym or some HIIT training and have adapted the toppings to suit my cravings today on Pancake Day. Although it doesn't have to only be eaten on this one day, its great as an after exercise meal, snack or dessert. It leaves you feeling full and fulfilled.
Okay so here is what you'll need to make these epic pancakes...
2 x Eggs
Coconut Oil for Frying
Splash of Almond Milk
1 x Banana
Tablespoon of 0% Fat Greek Yogurt
1 Scoop of Banana Protein Powder
1 Scoop of Rolled Oats
1 Scoop of Oppo Ice Cream
Handful of Hazel Nuts (Optional Garnish)
Canadian Maple Syrup (Optional)
..and here's the instructions.
Put the eggs, almond milk, half of the banana, Greek yogurt, protein powder and rolled oats all in a blender and blend. I've used a Nutribullet for this as I find it mixes quick and you'll get a nice smooth creamy texture. The texture should be thick as these are American style pancakes and not thin such as French crêpe style ones. Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan on a medium/low heat them pour in the mixture into circles. You know that one side is cooked because you'll see a few bubbles appearing on top of the uncooked side, once you see this, turn them over and cook the other side. Once fully cooked, layer the pancakes on top of each other with sliced banana in-between a few layers (with the half you have left over), then add some maple syrup if required. Top off with Oppo Columbian Chocolate & Hazelnut ice cream, a handful of hazelnuts and any banana you may have left over. If you find that it is too dry, then add extra ice cream or a spoonful of Greek yogurt.
