Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes

Since champ has decided my new up time is 5am everyday. That gave me plenty of time to throw these peanut butter and Jelly pancakes together. So delicious!!! 1/2 cup oats. 4 egg whites. Scoop chocolate whey. 1/2 banana. Almond milk to consistency. All in blender. If you add too much milk like I did then add some coconut flour or any flour you have to thicken it. I topped with low sugar raspberry jelly. And white chocolate peanut butter. Mmmmm amazing!!!

Chocolate sweet potato pancakes

1/2 sweet potato
Handful spinach
Almond milk
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1 egg
2 egg whites
Agave nectar
Coconut Flour

In a blender put the sweet potato (already cooked) and spinach together. Blend with a bit of almond milk at a time until they are both completely blended.
Pour into a bowl and mix the remaining ingredients. I ended up adding about 2 tbs coconut flour but I didn’t measure, was going by the consistence.
Cook on medium-low heat in coconut oil.
Top with whatever you like! I topped with just strawberries so the vitamin c in the strawberries can help absorb the iron in the spinach. They are so good and moist, no syrup or anything was necessary. But that will be up to you

How to make boring oatmeal amazing!

Many people think that oatmeal has to be gross and boring. Me personally love experimenting with oats. They are so versatile! With me using them to make muffins, cake, protein, and granola bars. I even use them in shakes and in this case, for breakfast!

1/2 mashed banana
1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein
1 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup old fashion oats
Skim milk
Cinnamon
Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds
Add walnuts raisins and an egg.

This was the best breakfast. I’m not even kidding. Try it! And try making your own creations!

A very simple breakfast! Taking any vegetables you choose such as spinach, mushrooms, peppers, or onions; and creating a delicious egg white omelette. This is just a healthy breakfast idea! I added salsa once before and it was so tasty!

Protein pancakes part 2

I tried a new recipe from oxygen magazine for protein pancakes. I like this recipe better than the first I tried mostly because of the simplicity of it.

What you need:
1/2 cup old fashion oats
1 tbs ground flaxseed
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
2 egg whites
1/3 cup cottage cheese

You put all those ingredients into the blender and blend it! (duh 😉 lol) stick it in the fridge for 3 minutes and cook on medium heat.

My own lil twist. I added half a banana to the blender with the other ingredients and after it was all blended I added chopped walnuts.

The recipe says it serves 1 but with me adding the banana I got a bit more batter than one person may need.

The nutrition facts are from the magazine so it doesn’t include the half banana and walnuts.
