Quick, High Protein & Fibre, Gluten Free Pancakes

These are one of my go-to recipes, that I eat for breakfast regularly (I either have this or an egg white w/ broccoli scramble/omelet).  These pancakes are quick, easy, low in calories and high in protein and fibre.  They are also gluten-free!  I top them with strawberries, but blueberries or other berries or fruit could work just as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop protein powder (Gaspari Myofusion Elite is my go-to protein powder)
  • 2 Tbsp psyllium husk
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 cup berries
  • 1 pkg stevia

 

Directions

  1. In a small bowl mix 1 scoop protein powder, 2 tbsp psyllium husk, and 1/2 cup egg whites, while a pan heats up (I use vegetable oil spray to keep the fat content low) on med-high heat.  Let sit for a moment (psyllium husk is a gel-forming insoluble fibre, allowing it to sit for a moment allows it to thicken up slightly).
  2. Pour batter onto pan and cook (can usually tell when it’s time to flip by the bubbles that form on the up side).  Flip over.
  3. While pancakes are cooking, heat 1 cup strawberries (I usually use frozen) in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  4. Once strawberries are heated, break them into smaller pieces with a fork and mix in 1 pkg stevia powder to sweeten (makes a nice syrup substitution).
  5. Once pancakes are cooked on both sides, put onto plate and pour strawberry mixture on top.
  6. Enjoy.  Makes 2-3 pancakes
