This is a variation of a traditional body builders recipe, also known as the Big Momma in 12wbt Pirate Circles! I’ve worked out the calories based on my own protein powder (Nature’s Way Figure) so will have to adjust that when I get a new tub of protein powder! I’ve made it as a ‘serves 2’ although you could use it as a single high protein meal on a day where you have totally stuffed up nutritionally and need a good filling hit of protein!
Per serve (approx from Calorie King)
- Oats (Homebrand, rolled), 30g or 1/3 cup
- Protein Powder (Nature’s Way Figure), 1tbsp
- Baking Powder, 1 tsp
- Egg White (Frozen), 100mL
- Milk (Skinny), 50mL or 1/4cup
- LSA (Macro), 1 tsp
- Spray Olive Oil
Using a food processor, blend the oats into a flour adding the Protein Powder and Baking powder and LSA to ensure it is well combined. Change attachment to the beater (or tip in to a bowl to mix) and add the egg whites and milk beating until light and fluffy. If you use fresh egg whites, you could whip these up and then fold in other ingredients to make an extra light and fluffy pancake!
Pour half of the mixture into a slightly oiled (spray) pan on about half heat. Cover and cook for about 5mins (bubbles should form) and then flip carefully. Cook the other and save for later!
As this is a complete protein meal, serve with some fresh fruit for your carbohydrates! I am thinking of trying a berry sauce.. 100g of mixed berries (frozen), a tbsp of fresh orange juice, a tsp of cornflour.. mixed together and nuked for a couple of minutes, stir, nuke for 2 more minutes. That would probably be about 100 calories (~20g carbs) bringing it up to a full 300cal meal. And of course, you could halve that and add a dollop of yogurt as well!
