High protein, low carb and oh so easy to whip together – this pancake recipe has only 4 ingredients that just need to combine and pour into the pan.

Low carb, high protein pancakesMost of us seem to wait until the weekend for pancakes – but this recipe is so quick to make I’ve incorporated it into my mid-week routine as well.

I think this recipe is great post-workout, but it’s also good if you’re struggling with digestive issues such as SIBO and if carbohydrates give you symptoms like bloating, diarrhoea or constipation.Β Low carb, high protein pancakes

I’ve used black-strap molasses, if you’ve never tried it I’d recommend it as it’s rich in iron, magnesium and calcium, but a warning the taste is strong! Try small amounts to start.

Serves 1

Pancake ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp protein powder (I used hemp)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp of plant based milk

Topping suggestions:

  • Coconut yoghurt
  • Berries
  • 1 tsp of seeds (I used a combo of chia and sunflower seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp black-strap molasses
  • 1 tsp rice malt syrup

Method:

Add the eggs to a bowl, whisk gently, then add the remaining ingredients, combine and whisk until mixture is smooth.

Heat a fry pan with a teaspoon of oil (such as coconut or olive oil). Pour the mixture in, cover the pan and in a few minutes, when the pancake appears to be ready (the edges should be cooked), flip the pancake. When cooked, slide the pancake onto a plate and add your toppings.

Yours in health,
