My on-the-go go-to’s for easy-peasy nutrition and variety, as is widely known, are salad bowls, rice bowls and smoothies. I fancy myself a mixologist in the kitchen, and these mixed-up menu items are my favorites! I can toss whatever I have together for an easy meal that is nutrient dense and delicious in minutes.
Who doesn’t love that?
The newest member to this roster are Pancakes, specifically S&R Protein Pancakes. (Still working out a wittier name; suggestions welcomed!)
Within five to seven minutes, you can have a healthy, balanced breakfast at your fingertips. This one is also good for kids to help make! (The younger ones will need added supervision with the pan-related tasks, though.)
S&R Gluten-Free Protein Pancakes
- 1/3 cup milk (dairy, almond, Ripple, etc.)
- 1/4 cup gluten free old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup egg whites (cage free and local, if you can. Same with the egg.)
- 1 scoop protein powder of your choice, chocolate is best!
- 1-2 tbl gluten-free flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
Pre-heat your pan on medium-high.
Whip or beat all the ingredients above except the flour.
Once fully mixed, the batter should be runny and evenly colored.
Add the flour and mix thoroughly.
Spray pan with cooking spray or drizzle olive oil or ghee to keep pancakes from sticking.
Check the pan to ensure it's sufficiently hot by dripping a few drops of water; if you hear a sizzle, it's time.
Add 1/4 c. of batter for each pancake to the pan, flipping when the side-up face of pancake begins to bubble or look aerated.
The fun really begins when you divert from the basic recipe below and add your favorite mix-in’s, like maca powder, a smidgen of crushed ripe banana, almonds, cacao powder or nibs, chia seeds, etc.
