It’s pretty late and I’m way overdue for some sleep, but I wanted to pop in and share with you the breakfast I had this morning.
I’ve been following the Tone It Up girls for sometime now, and time and time again their perfect fit protein pancake has come up as peoples favorites. I made it once last year with Garden of Life Plant Protein Powder and it came out tasting like paper. No joke. After that I set this recipe on the back burner.
Ever since Monday’s post I’ve been thinking about pancakes and with no pancake mix at home it was the perfect opportunity to try the protein pancakes once again. This time I had perfect fit protein that I ordered a few weeks prior (they have sample packs to order and try – 3 packs for $5, I think).
Just mixed everything together and cooked it in some coconut oil, then topped with more coconut oil, strawberries, and blueberries.
While the pancake doesn’t have the exact same consistency as a regular pancake (they’re a bit more dense) they do stand in as quite the suitable alternative. I think the protein powder used will definitely affect the texture of the pancake in the end. Perfect Fit protein is a brown rice based protein, but I’m pretty sure Plant Fusion or Vega would work well too.
This is a nice and filling breakfast that I’ll probably interchange with this 2 ingredient pancake on the days where I don’t have pancake mix at home.
Just 1 large egg + 1 mashed banana mixed up and cooked in a pan. Mix-ins (flax, chia, juicy blueberries, nut butter, etc.) are always fun additions.
Otherwise, it’s kodiak cake pancakes all the way : )
And now I’m off to bed! Night!
Pancakes or Waffles?
What are your favorite pancake toppings?
