Serious about lifting, fitness and that there healthy lifestyle?

Then why would you not embrace the gains to be had from PROTEIN PANCAKE DAY, all with a nice little healthy spin for National Heart Health Month whilst you’re at it?

Some might think it’s ironic that National Heart Health Month, an initiative that aims to encourage people to take practical steps to reducing the onset of heart disease, also falls on Pancake Day! Pancakes are bad for you, right?

Well we don’t see it that way, instead we see the humble pancake as a way to nourish and encourage healthfulness, increase muscle to fat ratio and support your gains…if done correctly and sensibly of course.

Make your pancakes protein dense, fibre rich and delicious, without the need for lashings of calorific syrups and sugars! There is simply no need these days what with the range of organic nut butters, calorie free syrups and sauces, coconut oils and health optimising flaxseeds all adding flavour, sweetness and of course nutritional goodness.

To enjoy your pancakes this Shrove’s Tuesday without the guilt or regret, then try these satiating and absolutely delicious heart healthy pancakes today:

...........................................................................................................................................................

Serves 1

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….......................

Ingredients:

1 banana

1 scoop vanilla or choc protein

1 egg

30g rolled oats

1 tbsp. Linsuit Linusit Premium Organic Flaxseed

1 tbsp. Lucy Bee Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

1 tbsp. Walden Farms Calorie Free Syrup

...........................................................................................................................................................

Directions

This is real quick and simple. Get your blender out, chuck in your banana, egg, protein powder, oats and Flaxseed and blast it to form your ‘flour free’ batter. Keep blitzing until smooth.

Heat up half your coconut oil in the pan over medium heat and ladle in some batter and cook for around 1 minute on each side. Remove from pan and continue until all batter is gone.

Serve your pancakes with some Walden Farms Calorie Free Syrup or if you fancy getting on the #GainsTrain then spread a teaspoon or 2 of Buff Bake Snickerdoodle Almond butter.

For a protein packed topping, you could also try mixing 30g Whey protein powder into 125g natural yoghurt and using this as a flavoursome topping to your pancakes.

All that’s left to do now is enjoy. Bon Appetit.
