Happy Monday, folks!
Protein powder has become a recent obsession of mine. I have a casein shake every night before I go to bed, but I was looking for a way to incorporate more protein into other foods. I picked up this organic vegan protein powder from RawGreen the other day and thought it would be just the thing for experimenting with! (Winston doesn’t seem so sure.)I’m a big fan of paleo pancakes—the standard banana & egg combination that results in a pretty dang good pancake. They tend to be a little more runny than usual pancakes, but I figured that adding protein powder would give them a little more depth.These ingredients are super simple: a ripe banana, two eggs, some baking powder and salt, cinnamon and vanilla, and protein powder. Into the blender they go! No whisks or messy dishes here.Little circles of perfection. These pancakes are much more like normal batter, but you’ll still want to be careful when flipping them!Nailed it!These pancakes are best served warm, standing up, with a pat of butter (okay, not paleo, but necessary) and real maple syrup. If you’re thinking of adding fruit or chocolate chips, I commend your genius.
It’s the little things that get us through, right?
Here’s to crushing another week!
