Protein Pancakes with Cashew Cream

Soooo I found another breakfast MUST TRY! I know I just posted about pancakes but here is another spin on some toppings!

For the protein pancakes you can try a few things:

Recipe #1
1 scoop of Vanilla protein powder (I like BSN Dessert)
1/4 cup of egg whites
3 tbs of Almond Milk (or whatever milk you use)
1tsp of cinnamon (I tend to go a lil crazy with the cinnamon! love it!)
-Mix all together in bowl and cook like good ole pancakes!

Recipe #2
1/4 cup egg whites
1 scoop of protein powder
1-2 Tablespoons vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 banana, mashed


Recipe #3

1/3 cup oats
1/2 banana
1/4 cup low sodium cottage cheese
3 T egg whites
1 tsp cinnamon


This one is awesome if you don’t have protein powder. Throw in the blender and then cook!


Toppings are the FUN part! you can pick anything you like! Try cashew cream!

2 cups whole raw cashews
cold water

Put 2 cups whole, raw cashews and rinse very well under cold water. Put in a bowl and add cold water to cover them. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Drain the cashews and rinse under cold water.

Place the cashews in a blender with enough fresh cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth.

1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese
1 1/2 Scoop Protein

1/2 Cup Oatmeal uncooked
1/4 Cup Wheat Germ
1/4 Cup Ground Flax seed
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Variations:
If you want to spice it up a little, try adding 1/4 tsp vanilla to your batter! You can also add 1 Tbsp Flax Meal. Experiment with the protein powder- you can also try using Chocolate flavor if you’re feeling frisky.


Toppings:

Top with Maple Syrup (I go for the REAL DEAL) just keep your portions in check! 1 Tbsp is enough for me. 

You can also opt for sugar free maple syrup, honey, fruit, yogurt (I like Plain 0% greek yogurt mixed with Stevia), chopped walnuts, or nut butters (I like almond butter!) 


Get creative!
