Since the fall is upon us, why not start your days with a protein packed, pumpkin inspired meal! These pancakes are delicious!
- 150g Egg Whites
- 15g of Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup of pure mashed pumpkin
- 1 package of stevia
- 1 box of raisins (14g)
- Pumpkin Spice
13g of Natural Peanut Butter
1.5tbsp of Pure mashed pumpkin
1 package of stevia
Combine all of the batter ingredients in a blender - the magic bullet works best - and cook half the batter on medium to high heat in a non-stick pan. Before turning the pancake over to cook the other side, strategically place half of the raisins in the batter so that they are evenly spaced out. Now flip the pancake and continue cooking it until golden brown on both sides. Do the same with the other half of the batter.
To make the butter, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl until the butter is smooth. If you'd like to make it less thick, add in a few drops of water until you reach the desired consistency.
Before indulging in this yummy meal, spread the butter on top of the pancakes and sprinkle some cinnamon on top. Delish!
These yummy squares are a great, energy packed, on-the-go snack! Give them a try!
- 150g Almond Flour
- 60g Rice Protein (Vanilla) - feel free to try whey
- 1tsp Salt
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1 Whole Egg
- 2 Egg Whites (66g of liquid egg whites)
- 22g Splenda (3/4 cup)
- 2tsp Pure Cinnamon Extract
- 2tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2tsp All Spice
- 2 Jars of Apple Baby Food (low sugar)
- 70g of Sultana Raisins
Prehead the over to 350 degrees.Combine the wet ingredients with the splenda in a separate bowl (Eggs, Extract, Baby Food) and whisk them together.
Then in another, larger bowl, combine the dry ingredients with the raisins and lightly whisk them together.
Now combine the wet ingredients with the dry and whisk until the mixture is smooth - at this point it will not be very liquidy, it is more doughy.
Pour into a glass baking dish and bake for approximately 40mins.
I divided mine into 12 squares in order to get the following nutrition profile:
NOTE: they did turn out a bit moist and dense, so feel free to muck with the recipe if you wish. Otherwise, I love the way they taste :)
