Low Carb Pancakes
So, it's Saturday and I'm having a rest day. No work-out, just all chillin goodness.
Outside it's been snowing like crazy all day. I know I should be getting tired of snow by now, but I'm not. I just really really like snow! :)
On the kitchen front we decided to try out something new for lunch today.
I've been having this ridiculous sweet craving, and I so felt like pancakes. Time to test out some Healthy Low carb Protein rich Pancakes! Did I hear a YUM? They're not just yummy, they're pretty healthy too! These pancakes are oven baked, not fried on the frying pan.
The recipe I got from Kristine Weber - a lady with; (read) good looks, good cooking skills, good portion of humor, NM in Body Fitness, and last but not least - a cat mom.
Her blog "Food for Muscles" is definitely worth checking out. I'm passing by constantly for some good pointers and some nice protein recipes. :) Thanks again Kristine! *hugs*
Oven Baked Protein Pancakes
1 egg white
1/2 box of mashed cottage cheese
2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tps baking powder
2 tbsp icing sugar replacement
2-3 drops stevia vanilla
Some milk or water if the batter gets very thick
1 ts cardamom
1 tbsp yacon sirup
Firstly, turn the oven on - temperature 180 degrees C.
Prepare a baking tray with some baking paper.
Mix everything together except from the yacon sirup, and let it rest for a few minutes. Pour the batter on to the baking paper in medium pancake size - they will expand as they get warm. Pour some yacon sirup over, and put them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
Sweetener, cinnamon, roll them up and enjoy.
For some extra decadence, pour some extra yacon sirup over before serving. Mmmmm yum.
Tifa and I hope you're all having a great Saturday!
