The kitchen is finally almost done!!!! They’re just going to be coming in today to do some last minute touch ups, and then we’ll be domestic again 🙂
The stove was installed yesterday though, so what does that mean? PANCAKES!!!!!
Man how i’ve missed these things.
Literally the first thing I did when I woke up today was run downstairs to commence making these.
Hey, you would do the same if you were kitchenless for weeks on end 🙂
Pancakes are usually viewed as very high calorie, high carb, bad for you, once in awhile treats. Actually, i’ve read about many people indulging in stacks of pancakes as their “cheat meals” for the week.
Well, this particular recipe is completely clean, and actually is probably a lot healthier than almost any healthy cereal out there.
So how is this even possible?
All you are going to need is
1. 1 scoop protein powder (I used a vanilla flavored one)
2. 1 tbsp ground flax seeds (or ground chia seeds if you don’t have flax… flax is a superfood btw 🙂 )
3. 1 egg separated (we’re going to be whipping up the white)
4. a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
5. 1/2 tsp butter extract (optional but highly recommended)
6. about 1/3 cups of water (pretty much just until it’s a pancake batter consistency)
7. 1/4 tsp baking powder
Mix all of the ingredients together except the egg white and the water.
Whip up your white. If you don’t know how to do this, I explain in this post.
And then fold them into the batter.
Finally mix in your water, and you are ready to go.
Make pancakes! Need I explain more?… I’m pretty sure making pancakes was one of the first cooking-related things we all learned how to do.
Now we’re going to make a quick strawberry sauce to finish these off.
Simply microwave strawberries for about 2 minutes. Stir, and then add in one packet of stevia. Microwave another 30 seconds. Then you’re done. That’s it.
Stack your pancakes, and top with the strawberry sauce.
Strawberry shortcake pancakes!!!!
(That you do NOT at all have to share 🙂 )
Question: What are your favorite type of pancakes?
My childhood favorite was definitely chocolate chip. I’ll make a recipe for those if you’re interested.
