Good morning friends! It's finally Saturday AND my friend Carrie's bachelorette party. Her wedding is only less than two weeks away! Tonight's festivities include taking a painting class, dinner at Crave and a night out - I couldn't be more excited to celebrate the bachelorette party of one of my truest friends :) I plan on indulging in plenty of wine, girl talk and sushi!
That being said, I knew I needed to start the day off on a good foot eats wise. I slept until 9:30am this morning - which is insanely late for a person that normal gets up at 5:30 am - and when I finally rolled out of bed, I was in the mood for a pancake. I used to make single serve protein pancakes all the time back in my single days, so I decided to see if I still had my old tricks up my sleeve. Sure enough, it turned out well :) If you don't have PB2 - a powdered form of peanut butter - feel free to use regular peanut butter. Remember, choose the one with the least amount of ingredients, ideally peanuts and salt.
Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes
2 tbsp gluten free all purpose flour
1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp PB2
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp canola oil
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 cup milk
1. Combine dry ingredients in a small cup, set aside.
2. Add milk and vanilla, stir to combine.
3. Cook over low heat in a small saucepan until the edges begin to brown and bubbles form.
4. Flip, cooking remaining side about another 1-2 minutes.
I threw in a few chocolate chips for good measure, then topped it with peanut butter and flaxseed. Served with my favorite metabolism boosting drink - more on that later.
See you soon! What's your favorite kind of pancake?
