OMG Pancakes!

Updated: Sep 7, 2021



I've been making variations of this classic pancake recipe for over a decade! My kids love it and it's a great way to trick them into starting their day with a delicious breakfast that is also super healthy. These pancakes provide lots of nutrients from the whole food ingredients, plenty of fat for energy, and a good dose of protein for strong bodies WITHOUT a butt load of sugary carbs.


...and on competition days, these are a staple in my game-day gym bag. Easy to digest, sustained energy, and no reactive hypoglycemia from wild blood sugar swings. Yum!


The basic recipe has 5 main components (1) 4 whole eggs (2) 1/2 cup something thick and full of fat (3) 1/2 cup mashed up fruit (4) a scoop of protein powder (5) 1 tsp baking powder. The flavor combinations are endless (I'm working on perfecting a savory version!), but here are some of my favorites:


4 Whole Eggs

+

1 of:

- 1/2 Cup almond butter or

- 1/2 Cup Peanut butter or

- 1/2 cup 11% fat greek yogurt or

- 1/2 cup softened cream cheese

+

1 of:

- 1 medium banana or

- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce or

- 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin or

+

1 Scoop (34g) protein powder

- BRIO+ Whey Protein Power (cinnamon swirl or salted caramel)

- BRIO+ Grass-Fed Collagen (unflavored)

+

1 tsp baking powder

+

Optional Spices


Instructions: whisk the wet ingredients together (first 3 items) then add the protein powder, baking powder, and optional spices. Stir until well combined, but don't overdo it.


Pour onto a well buttered griddle (or pan) and med-low heat. Flip when the bubbles that rise to the surface start to pop.
