pink protein pancakes
PINK PROTEIN PANCAKES – YES PLEASE!
Because.. who doesn’t like healthy, protein-packed and pink pancakes for breakfast? I am into simple, yet nutritious and good-looking recipes, and that is exactly what these pancakes are! Normally I make protein pancakes from 1 egg, 1 small banana and a scoop of vanilla whey (also worth a try!). But since I like everything pink, why don’t we make some rose-colored pancakes, right? Last pink recipe, was the beetroot hummus and that colour was so pretty!! So I figured the beetroot would also do very well with this one!
I made a big tower, which is double the ingredients stated below.
For one person you need:
✚ 1/2 medium sized cooked beetroot
✚ 1 scoops whey protein – I used vanilla flavor
✚ 1 egg
✚ 30 grams of oats
✚ A hand full raspberries
✚ Coconut oil
✚ Toppings (skyr/honey/red fruit)
How it’s done:
✚ Grind the oats into flour with a foodprocessor
✚ Add the egg, scoop of whey, beetroot, 1/2 of the raspberries too and mix all together
✚ If it’s too thick, add some water
✚ If you got a nice medium-thick batter you heat up the pan
✚ Bake the pancakes in coconut oil and stack up all the pancakes into a big tower
✚ Tip: flip the pancakes as soon as it doesn’t stick to the pan anymore. This way they stay pink and become less brown
✚ Add toppings like Skyr, the rest of the raspberries and other fruit or honey to make them a bit more sweeter. I like the taste of beetroot, but if you don’t you might like to add some extra sweetness to it.
