Today I’m sharing not one, but two of my favourite healthy pancake recipes, both packed full of delicious, nutritious blueberries. One happens to be high protein/low carb, the other higher carb. How do I know which one to eat, you ask? I honestly just go with my gut! Sometimes it feels good to refuel with some carbs, and I’d rather eat something I enjoy than feel deprived.
As a side note, there are no rules about when you can eat pancakes! Who says they are only a breakfast food?
BANANA & BLUEBERRY PANCAKES (Higher carb)
1 cup of oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
How to make it:
Blend all ingredients except blueberries until well combined. Heat a frypan on a medium-high heat and pour in batter to make 4 small pancakes. Cook until small bubbles begin to appear then add blueberries. Flip and cook all the way through, then serve with maple syrup and extra fruit. Yummo!
HIGH PROTEIN BLUEBERRY BANANA PANCAKES (Lower Carb)
These are super easy and great for people who are reducing their carb intake. Feel free to play around with the recipe.
¼ cup liquid egg whites (around 4 eggs)
1 scoop (25g) of vanilla whey powder
½ banana, mashed
Almond milk, if needed
¼ cup (25g) fresh or frozen blueberries
½ tsp. coconut oil
How to make it:
Whisk together the egg whites and protein powder. Stir in the mashed banana and add the blueberries. If the pancake mixture seems too thick, add a splash of almond milk to thin it.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan to low-medium. Pour in the pancake mixture and cook until little bubbles form (about 5 minutes). Make sure the pancake has set enough before you try flipping it, then flip over.
Cook the pancake for another 2- 3 minutes and serve with your favourite toppings.
Have fun with it and try out different toppings.
