Don’t ‘pan’ic, there’s plenty cakes for everyone!
These pancakes are one of our all time favourite breakfasts. The combination offers a high protein alternative to the traditional crepe and offers a great boost of energy before completing our one form of exercise of the day. They can be enjoyed with your favourite toppings but they are really well complimented with a creamy yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
¼ tsp baking powder
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
1 tbsp butter for frying
For the raspberry compote
50g frozen raspberries
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp cornflour
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor until it forms a smooth batter
Heat half the butter in a frying pan on a medium heat until melted and sizzling.
Pour in a quarter of the batter in a small circular shape in the pan.
After about 2 ½ minutes flip the pancake and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side, until it is golden brown.
Repeat step for with the remaining batter to create 3 more pancakes. After the second pancake is made, add the remaining butter to the pan and let it melt completely.
To make the compote, defrost the raspberries over a medium heat until they are heated through. Then add the remaining ingredients and simmer until well combined and slightly thickened.
Serve with your choice of toppings.
Serve and enjoy!
*You do not need to add the protein powder but it is a nice addition if you are consuming the pancakes before a big workout or a lot of exercise.
*We served the pancakes with coconut yoghurt and a raspberry compote but feel free to swap out with any of your favourite pancake toppings.
*Make sure to use a non-stick pan so that the pancakes are easier to flip.
*We find that the pancakes keep their shape best when you keep them relatively small.
*You can use a bigger frying pan and fry more than one pancake at a time, just make sure to keep the batter very separate.
*Our favourite toppings to serve the pancakes with are coconut yoghurt and berries or a warm berry compote, (see chia seed breakfast pudding recipe).
