Protein Pancakes with Cashew Cream

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Soooo I found another breakfast MUST TRY! I know I just posted about pancakes but here is another spin on some toppings!

For the protein pancakes you can try a few things:

Recipe #1
1 scoop of Vanilla protein powder (I like BSN Dessert)
1/4 cup of egg whites
3 tbs of Almond Milk (or whatever milk you use)
1tsp of cinnamon (I tend to go a lil crazy with the cinnamon! love it!)
-Mix all together in bowl and cook like good ole pancakes!

Recipe #2
1/4 cup egg whites
1 scoop of protein powder
1-2 Tablespoons vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 banana, mashed

Recipe #3
1/3 cup oats
1/2 banana
1/4 cup low sodium cottage cheese
3 T egg whites
1 tsp cinnamon

This one is awesome if you don't have protein powder. Throw in the blender and then cook!

Toppings are the FUN part! you can pick anything you like! Try cashew cream!
2 cups whole raw cashews
cold water

Put 2 cups whole, raw cashews and rinse very well under cold water. Put in a bowl and add cold water to cover them. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Drain the cashews and rinse under cold water.

Place the cashews in a blender with enough fresh cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth.
