Post-Workout Protein Pancakes

This recipe is incredibly easy and can serve up to 5 people dependent on portion sizing! It is based on the 4-ingredient vegan pancakes on the blog by Arantxa Barbarin, with slightly modified portion sizing and ingredients making the cooking phase quicker for these Post-Workout Protein Pancakes.

Given the slightly higher carb and lower fat content compared to conventional pancakes, these make a perfect pre or post-workout meal. They can also simply be shared and have options like streaky bacon or nut butters added to them to up the fat content.

Ingredients:

  • 200g LDNM Oats (or rolled oats)
  • 60g whey protein (I used LDNM chocolate whey)
  • 350ml almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • Heaped teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Grated nutmeg to taste
 

Method:

  • Place oats into a food processor and blend until resembling a flour consistency.
  • Add the milk and banana - blending until smooth.
  • Add the whey protein powder, cinnamon and nutmeg - blending until smooth.
  • Heat a frying pan on a medium heat, adding a small teaspoon of coconut oil.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the mixture slowly into the pan.
  • Fry for 1-2 minutes until the edges appear cooked, and then flip – repeating on the other side.
  • When nearing the serving (devouring) stage of your cooking place another smaller frying pan on a medium heat.
  • Add half a teaspoon of coconut oil.
  • Add a handful of blueberries and handful of raspberries.
  • Saute the fruit, pushing it around until the liquids begin to leak and the mixture resembles a jam (or to your preferred consistency.

This recipe would go well with LDNM Maple Whey and can be made vegan by simply replacing the normal Whey with a vegan protein powder.
