When I first started counting macros I realized very quickly I wasn't eating enough protein to hit my goals. After tracking a while I noticed that my breakfast was really low in the protein department. So I made an effort to beef up the protein content in my breakfast. If I can hit between 25-30 grams of protein for breakfast then with snacks and meals, I can hit my protein goal. But if I start off the day without enough protein it's really hard for me to fit it into the day.
Enter protein pancakes. I like to mix up my breakfasts so I don't get bored and this is a fun recipe to try out. I mean peanut butter syrup??? Fresh strawberries and hot pancakes! It's a great way to start the day. Experiment with different flavors of protein powder and see what you like best.
- 30 g Kodiak Cake pancake mix
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 1 large egg
- 60 g unsweetened applesauce
- 2-4 tablespoons water
- 100 g fresh strawberries, sliced
- 12 g PB2 powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons water
In a medium bowl, whisk together Kodiak Cakes pancake mix, protein powder, egg, applesauce, and just enough water to get a batter texture. Heat and lightly grease a griddle or large skillet. Pour batter onto the griddle to form two pancakes. Flip when bubbles in the batter start to pop. In a small bowl, mix 1 1/2 tablespoons water with PB2 powder to form a thin sauce.
Serve pancakes topped with sliced strawberries and drizzle the PB2 sauce over the top! Enjoy!!!
This recipe has about 16 grams of protein coming from the protein powder. You can figure out how many grams of your protein powder you need by figuring out how many grams of protein are in each gram of protein powder (protein g divided by weight in grams of one serving of protein powder). Then translate that to figure out how many grams of powder you need to get 16 grams of protein. OR enter your own ingredients in MFP to suit your needs.
