Eggless Chia Seed Protein Pancakes

Stay healthy and energised with this delicious pancake recipe. 


 

Breakfast is the most important part of the day when it comes to eating. Having protein in your breakfast will keep you feeling fuller for longer and it helps keep your sugar levels normal. Not having a protein based breakfast will have you wanting to eat just an hour after your eaten and you will probably snack on more carbs. My Tip: Add protein to your breakfast.

Ingredients:

1 medium sized banana
1/2 cup baby oats
1/2 cup almond milk – slowly add until you get a thick consistence
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder – any flavor
1/4 cup chia seeds – add after everything has been blitz
1/2 cup frozen berries
1/4 cup water

 

Directions: 

Blitz all ingredients except the chia seeds in a magic bullet or using a stick blender.

Slowly add the milk until it comes to batter mix.

Add the chia seeds and let sit for 5 minutes – let the chia seed do it’s magic and watch it expand. Give it a quick mix with a spoon.

Heat a small frying pan and lightly spray it with oil.

Add your pancake batter for 1 minute or wait until the pancake forms air bubbles. This means it is cooked.

Flip it over for a another 1 min. Repeat this until the batter is gone. 

Once you have finished with your pancakes add the berries to the pan with 1/4 cup water and simmer until the water reduces. Add on top of your pancakes for a nice finish. Yoghurt is also a delicious addition.
