Welp folks, it’s the 13th of March and we are snowed in! Snow days make me want to snuggle up on the couch in my sweats and watch movies, so that is exactly how I started my day today! But it isn’t complete without a hearty breakfast. We had our eggs, but to accompany them I threw together this quick recipe for Macro Friendly Sweet Cakes (Pancakes)! Took about ten minutes to make… Check it out!
1/4 Cup + 1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
2 Large Eggs
1 Scoop Gold Standard Vanilla Whey Protein
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Almond Milk
1/4 Cup Water
Optional Ingredients Below:
1/4 Cup Blueberries (Fresh or Frozen, I used frozen here)
1 Tbsp Cream Cheese
1 Tbsp Strawberry Jam
Dollop of Whip Cream (I use Reddi Whip cause that shit is the bomb)
Combine all of the required ingredients (Everything above the optional items). Mix thoroughly so batter is smooth. Heat up a skillet and spray with cooking spray. Scoop your batter onto the pan as you normally would for pancakes. When the pancakes start to rise and develop little bubbles, toss in some of the blueberries before flipping the pancake. Now, of Course you can add these into the batter if you prefer to do so, but this is the way I prefer to do it for a few reasons… One- it prevents the batter from turning blue! Two- It prevents the batter from separating around the blueberries (which sometimes distorts the shape of pancakes and can cause uneven cooking).
One the pancakes are done… If you choose to add the optional ingredients as I did… You can zap the cream cheese in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Don’t cook it, just warm it so it doesn’t make your pancakes cold. Same thing with your Jam. If the jam is in the fridge, give it just enough heat to prevent it from making your pancakes cold. I spread the cream cheese and strawberry Jam between two pancakes, then topped with a little whip cream. And that’s it!
You can enjoy these without the fruit and jam and cream cheese- substitute a little cinnamon for the blueberries, or enjoy with just maple syrup. Or even try other fruit… Banana Pancakes are the bomb if they can fit your macros, and are even better with cinnamon and walnuts…. Strawberry banana are a great combo as well!
