Protein Pancakes

Postby MikePryor » August 5th, 2012, 2:56 am

I've been trying to add more protein into my diet, so I have been experimenting with different recipes. One recipe that worked well for me is protein pancakes.

What you will need:
1 cup of Bisquick
1 cup of milk (I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk, but regular milk should work too), add a bit more if you prefer thin pancakes
1 egg
2 tablespoons of ground flax (optional, but they are a good source of fiber and omega-3s)
60 grams of whey protein (I use vanilla Body Fortress, but you may want to use a different brand or flavor).

Mix the ingredients in a bowl until they form a batter, then cook on a skillet. This should be enough for two people to have quite a generous stack of pancakes. If you want more, just multiply the ingredients!

I don't eat pancakes but this sounds like a good recipe. If I were to eat pancakes it would only be with milk. Not sure about the egg and whey though. Seriously, I may try this out. Thanks for the recipe.

You're welcome. I hope that you enjoy them!

The whey is just for added protein; you can use the same recipe without whey or flax seeds, but you won't be getting as much protein, fiber, or omega-3s.

Yeah I know. I use to do the whole whey in my diet thing. I was more hesitant because of the egg.

These sound really good. And healthy as well. I will be trying them out once I get groceries. Thanks for the recipe.
