This is a quick and easy to make super delicious and diet friendly protein pancake recipe that I like to use a few times per week.
It is very protein dense, and the fiber and fats will help fill you up and stave off cravings.
Blend the following:
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 2 tablespoons Nutracleanse (fiber supplement, can use flax seed as a replacement)
- 1 whole egg (free range)
- Dash of almond milk
- 1 scoop of your favorite flavor of Isopure Whey Protein Isolate
Preheat pan on medium (spray it with PAM if you need to to make sure the pancakes don’t stick to the pan). Flip early. Creates 2-3 small-medium sized pancakes
Topping: Add the following once cooked
- Walden Farms Calorie Free Pancake Syrup
- Heat up 1/4 cup of blueberries or place into batter while cooking
500 calories, 45 grams protein, 44 grams carbs (14 of which are pure fibre), 16 grams fat
Now, this is the most delicious, but still diet friendly version of this pancake, however, you can definitely make an even stricter version of it for more restrictive cutting diets.
How To Alter This Recipe For Individuals Who Are On VERY Strict Cutting Diets
When I am dieting down and my calorie restriction doesn’t allow me to fit 500 calories in for this meal, or I simply need a more favorable macronutrient distribution calorie/protein/carb/fat wise, I will take away the whole egg, the fruit, and the Nutracleanse.
This makes it not taste as delicious, but it’s still pretty damn good considering how nicely it can fit into even the most strict of diets.
Definitely beats re-heated frozen plain chicken breasts!
I will add another scoop of protein to it too sometimes to help meet my protein goals for the day if needed.
These ingredients are a guideline and you can play around with them to meet your macro goals per day.
My favorite very strict version of this pancake is simply 1/3 cup of quick oats, and 1.5 scoops chocolate or vanilla Isopure, and then enough almond milk for it to be just mixable enough to blend it into pancake batter consistency (a bit more than a few dashes of almond milk).
This makes 2 medium-large sized pancakes.
The more oats and protein you add the more liquid you will need to blend it up in obviously. If you are insanely strict you can even mix it with water (I’ve done this before and it still tastes very good).
The macros of that come out to 334 calories, 42 grams protein, 32 grams carbs, and 2 grams fat.
