Pancake Day is one of the best days of the year! From paper-thin crepes with a sprinkling of fresh lemon juice and sugar to stacks of fluffy American-style pancakes with maple syrup and maybe even a little crispy bacon, we love them all.
This Shrove Tuesday, work your pancakes into your meal plan by incorporating a scoop of Garden of Life Protein Powder into your batter. Our protein powders are made from whole food ingredients that can all be traced right back to the seed or source they grew from.
1. Chocolate & Strawberry Protein Crepes
You can’t go wrong with a classic crepe, but @becs_fitbites has given the Pancake Day staple a 21st century update by adding silken tofu, oats, plant-based milk, our Raw Organic Vanilla Protein Powder, a sprinkling of coconut sugar and lots more yummy ingredients to the batter mixture.
Serve with plenty of fresh berries (we recommend strawberries and raspberries for perfect juicy sweetness) and a few squares of your favourite chocolate, which should start to melt beautifully into your crepes. Delicious.
2. Blueberry Protein Pancakes
Blueberry pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup can feel like a real treat, and this high-protein recipe means you can indulge your sweet tooth and get your pancake fix while also getting your protein fix.
Using coconut oil to fry your pancake batter adds a little healthy fat to the recipe, and adding a sprinkle of cinnamon brings an extra warming hit of heat to help start your day in the best possible way.
These pancakes are too good to save just for Pancake Day – make them part of your regular post-workout or weekend breakfast repertoire.
