protein chocolate pancakeAs it’s officially Shrove Tuesday today, I thought I’d give you a little recipe which is not only filling and healthy, but also fat-burning too!

 

For those of you who like me, are following a clean eating lifestyle nowadays, you’ll be pleased to know that even though you may be saying ‘no’ to preservatives, sugar and sweet treats, there’s no reason you can’t have a pancake on Pancake Day, so here goes:

 

INGREDIENTS

2 eggs

2 scoops of protein powder (I’ve used Sunwarrior Protein – Chocolate flavour here)

dash of water

teaspoon of coconut oil

 

METHOD

  1. Whisk eggs in a mixing bowl
  2. Add the scoops of protein powder and a dash of water
  3. Combine the ingredients together so they form pancake consisitency (you may need to add a little more water, for example)
  4. Melt coconut oil in fry pan
  5. Pour pancake mix in pan and fry for 2-3 minutes
  6. Once your pancake starts to show air bubbles, pop pan under the grill to crisp up the top

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

If you’d like to add some ‘clean’ chocolate sauce and/or fruit like that displayed in the picture, here’s what you need to do:

CHOCOLATE SAUCE:

  1. Melt 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil in a pyrex bowl, over a saucepan of water
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons of Organic cocoa powder (I use Green and Blacks because it’s readily available from most supermarkets)
  3. Add a dash of Organic honey (or your choice of clean sweetener)
  4. Stir ingredients together until desired ‘sauce’ consistency

 

FRUIT:

  1. Chop a selection of fruit (low sugar fruits include: berries and cherries)
  2. Warm them through in a fry/saucepan
  3. Serve with pancake and/or with chocolate sauce above

 

TIP – For best fat-burning results, eat this after your workout!
