Protein Pancakes

30 May

BeFunky_IMG_3693.jpgI looooove pancakes. You know I love pancakes. The whole world knows I love pancakes. I’m constantly trying to find a way to make pancakes that are on the healthier side but one challenge with that is it usually doesn’t taste, look, or feel like pancakes. Well this recipe is actually one of the best when it comes to gluten free pancakes. Of course you can use just regular oat flour if you can tolerate a little bit of gluten.

This was my post workout meal the other day and I highly recommend you make it.

Ingredients

1 scoop (30 g) protein powder (I used banana cream flavored but you can use any kind)

1/3 cup gluten-free oat flour

3 tablespoons coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce

2 egg whites

1/2 cup almond milk

BeFunky_IMG_3697.jpgCombine everything in a bowl, whisking until everything is well combined. Spoon the batter onto a hot pan and cook them as pancakes.

I poured some grape molasses on it, as well as peanut butter and sugar free jelly.

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Oatmeal

28 Mar

BeFunky_IMG_2647.jpgYes, people yes! There IS another way to make oatmeal! Maybe I’m way too late to figure this out but savory oatmeal is totally a thing. After eating oatmeal sweet for years and years I finally realized I can turn it into a breakfast bowl. A little research on the internet machine proved that people do make savory oatmeal and I was not the inventor of it (which was disappointing) and gave me lots of ideas. This is the first of the many experiments. I say give it a try even if you’re not the biggest fan of oatmeal; it might change your mind 😉

 

Ingredients

1 egg

1 slice of turkey bacon (chopped)

3 tablespoons of pepper jack cheese (shredded or cut in small cubes)

1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal

3/4 cup water

 

Note: As you can see this is just an individual portion. Of course you can multiple the recipe.

 

In a small saucepan crisp the turkey bacon and then set aside. Using the same saucepan cook the oatmeal with water. While that’s bubbling, cook your egg in another pan however you want. I love over easy eggs so that’s how I made mine, you can also make it sunny side up, poached, or scrambled. Once all the water is gone and oatmeal is soft and cooked; add pepper jack cheese and bacon stirring it constantly. Pour it in a bowl and add the egg on top. Yum!

Apple Pie Baked Oats

22 Oct

This is one of my favorite recipes, not only because I came up with it on my own (yes I was inspired by other recipes online, but still!) but also it tastes DELICIOUS. So I decided to use this for Silk’s Pinterest recipe contest. There are awesome recipes by other people so the competition is tough but once you give my baked apple pie oatmeal a try, you will know who the winner should be 🙂

Ingredients

1/3 cup old fashioned oats

2/3 cup Silk Unsweetened Pure Almond Milk

¼ cup mashed banana (half of a medium banana)

1 egg

1 tablespoon flax seed

½ cup apple cubes

¼ cup raw pecans

½ teaspoon maple syrup

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon baking powder

Serve with

½ cup milk (any kind you want)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray two ramekins with cooking spray. Mix everything in a bowl and pour it in the ramekins. Bake in the oven about 45 minutes.

Let them cool off a little before you eat them. I love pouring more Silk Unsweetened Pure Almond Milk on top of them!
