High Protein Almond Pancakes With Strawberries Recipe
|Almond Pancakes With Strawberries|
6 Egg Whites from either Eggwhites international or Muscleegg (he even has strawberry flavored eggwhites)
¼ cup steel cut McCann’s Oats (Quaker Oats are Genetically Modified!) Since I used steel cut instead of rolled oats I let them soak in a small amount hot water for about five minutes to “swell” before I added them to the recipe.
2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein
1 cup or 1 canister of Greek Yogurt
2 Packets Vanilla Stevia
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 Tsp. Organic Almond Extract (I may add just a bit more…I love all things almond)
7 Strawberries (cut in small pieces.) Please use organic….strawberries are heavily sprayed with pesticides!!
Combine all of the ingredients (except for the Strawberries) in a blender and blend until everything is well combined (about 30 seconds). You want to have a nice smooth “pancake batter-like” consistency. It may not be as thick as you are accustomed to with regular pancakes. It may even have the appearance of a Crepe batter. (If the consistency is too thin for you simply add more oats. I don’t want the additional carbs.)
Gently stir in the strawberries. If you prefer to mix it by hand a whisk will also work well.
Pre- heat a non-stick pan or griddle over a medium heat and lightly coat with cooking spray. I used coconut oil cooking spray. You can test the pan by dripping a drop of water into the pan and see if it dances & sizzles. If so, your pan is ready!
Pour the desired amount of batter into the pre heated pan.
This should yield about 7 medium pancakes.
