For me, Saturday or Sunday mornings are just made for long breakfasts/brunches with some good coffee, some great reading material or company.
Layering these pancakes gave me so much joy, one layer of lightly cooked apple, then two layers of creamy greek yoghurt and drizzling them with cashew butter and dusting with cinnamon.
When ‘The Protein Works’ sent me some new protein flavours to sample these pancakes seemed like the perfect option, I do occasionally enjoy a protein shake but making my breakfast or treats with protein fills me with delight. The reason being is I would rather eat my calories than drink them, plus with all the latest flavours from ‘The Protein Work’s‘ mean’s I have no excuses to get into a boring breakfast rut!
Gone are the day’s of ‘chocolate,strawberry and banana’ for me Apple Cinnamon Swirl is the way forwards, perfect for sunny day’s and warming for when it’s cold outside.
[recipe title=”Apple Swirl Protein Pancakes” servings=”1″ time=”15 minutes” difficulty=”easy”]
*One scoop Apple Cinnamon Swirl Protein Powder
*One whole egg (beaten)
*Around 50ml Almond Milk
*A pinch of cinnamon
*Coconut oil for frying
Firstly beat your egg and then add in the protein powder and cinnamon, whisk to avoid any lumps and add in the milk and whisk again to create a smooth batter.
Heat coconut oil in a pan (low/medium heat) and spoon in a generous portion of your pancake mix, allow to cook, flip over and once both sides are lightly golden remove from the pan and repeat the process until all the mix is used up.
If you are unsure about how to tell if your pancakes are cooked, I recommend looking for little bubbles in the pancake and that’s normally a sure fire sign.
*Serve with apple and greek yoghurt or nut butter*
