I love working out! I workout 6 days a week. On the days where I do HIIT and weight lifting I have to eat a hearty meal afterwards or my body will crash and I'll become irritable, dizzy, and nauseous. If you're like me, you want a recipe for protein powder pancakes to refuel you after your workout. When I exercise (3 times a week, every other day) I need some hard-core fuel and quickly! I workout in the mornings during summer as it is cooler and at night during fall and winter months. I'm always dead on my feet after these workouts and I need to eat pronto. I always eat carbs and protein on these days as that's what the body needs to refuel itself.
One of my absolute favorite things to eat after a HIIT and weight lifting session is protein powder pancakes. Not only are they easy to make but they are packed with everything I need to help me get through the day to help my muscles and cardiovascular system recover. But how do you make them? Here is my favourite recipe for protein powder pancakes.
1. Things You Will Need
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
1 Banana (the riper the better)
2/3 to 1/2 cup egg whites (don't use the yolk or you can just buy boxed egg whites that are CAGE FREE)
1 scoop Oats
Handful Peanut butter and dark chocolate chips (optional)
Coconut oil as it doesn't burn and is healthier (the oil in the spray cans works well)
2. How to Prepare
Blend the bananas and oats until mixed well. Add the egg whites and protein powder. If you are going to add the dark chocolate chips, add them last. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time onto a hot griddle spritzed with coconut oil. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
