Healthy pancake recipes

ID-100187188If you´re not as obsessed with porridge as I am, but still want a healthy and delicious breakfast, then maybe pancakes are your thing.

Pancakes are perhaps not immediately associated with a healthy breakfast, but if you use the right ingredients, there is no reason why pancakes can’t be good for you and provide you with the protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats you need to kick-start your mornings.

Below you will find 3 of my favourite recipes for pancakes, and remember – you can also make these for lunch, dinner or eat as a pre/post-workout meal.

 

 

 

 

Oatmeal Pancakes

2 eggs

1 egg white

60g oats

30g protein (optional, can be substituted for more oats, wheat bran, ground almonds etc)

4 tsp sweetener

1 tbs cinnamon

1 tsp cardamom

1tsp baking powder

1 tsp psyllium husk powder

100ml of water or milk

Directions: Mix the eggs with the sweetener before adding the other ingredients, and pan fry on a medium heat in extra virgin coconut oil for healthy fats.

 

Vanilla Pancakes

1 egg

1 egg white

100g quark

30g vanilla flavoured protein powder

1 tsp psyllium husk powder

1 tbs sweetener

1 tsp vanilla extract

100 ml water or milk

Almond Pancakes

2 eggs

1 egg white

25 g almond flour or ground almonds

25 g of oats or wheat bran

100g cottage cheese

100ml water or milk

1tsp psyllium husk powder

1tsp baking powder

1-2tsp sweetener

1tsp cinnamon

Directions: Mix the eggs with the sweetener before adding the cottage cheese and the other ingredients. Pan fry on a medium heat in extra virgin coconut oil for healthy fats.

 

Toppings

These pancakes are delicious on their own, but I always make toppings for mine. My favourites are cottage cheese and sugar-free strawberry jam, cottage cheese with erythritol and cinnamon or some crispy bacon if I´m feeling crazy.
