Pancake Monster

Thank you guys for all the wishes on my last post!  You sure know how to make a girl feel special :)

I love reading your comments and besides making my head infinitely larger with each comment, ya'll sometimes even like my eats.  The fabulous Jenna asked me how I make my microwave protein pancakes so I decided to write out the recipe.  I have a bit of a problem with following recipes as I like to get creative (nevermind my problem with authority) and make my own up along the way.  I adapted this from lots of blog ladies who could actually flip pancakes!  I started making microwave pancakes when my regular pancake attempts looked like this:
I could never flip them, so I would end up in a blob.  Once I came to the realization that I will never be a pancake flipper, I put the whole mix in the microwave and got this:
Here is the recipe:
Microwave Protein Pancakes:
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 whole egg or 1 eggwhite (I have also done the flax egg thang)
  • Fruit substance- you can use one of the following: 
    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    • 1/2 smashed banana
  • Protein powder of choice- I use 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey by Cyto Sport or 1/2 scoop Trader Joe's Chocolate Hemp Powder
  • Chia seeds and/or flax seeds
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Liquid choice (pick one)
    • Splash of almond milk
    • POM juice
    • Odwalla Superfood juice
    • Water works too
Directions: Add all dry ingredients, mix in all of the wet ingredients- the liquid of choice should be used only if you feel like the batter isn't thick enough.  Nuke in the microwave for 90 seconds- if it is still squishy, add another 30 seconds at a time until it looks done.  Remember, food continues to cook even once the clock is up!
Top with toppings of choice- I like Greek yogurt, almond butter, cacao powder, cinnamon, or fruit.
The nutritionals on this vary, but it can pack anywhere from 350-450 fabulous filling protein and carb delicious calories.  Give the recipe a try and let me know how you like it!

Other things I've been loving:
Homemade juice pulp crackers (pre-cutting!):
They are the size of large grapes and you can eat the whole thing.  Find out more about them here!
They are grown in California, so I guess they are semi-local for me.  I eat them and twitch each time because they are so sour they are sweet- if that makes any sense!

What's your favorite bizarro fruit?  I like kumquats (plus it's a fun word to say) and all the hybrid fruits like those donut peach things!

Have a great Tuesday!

Those pancakes are a great idea in the microwave. Sometimes I just don't have enough time to make them on the stove.

Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg said...

Ahhh, that's BANANA! For a second, I thought you had topped the pancakes with hardboiled eggs, lol!

Andrea @Celery In The City said...

AH, this recipe is awesome! I am not a flipper. I wreck the kitchen attempting to make pancakes, never thought of the microwave!

I don't think I've tried any bizzare fruits, but I want to try the ugli fruit. I heard they are really good!

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said...

I haven't tried any bizarre fruits - unless Dragon fruit counts :-) It is pretty bizarre!

I don't think I have ever had a kumquat.

Mari said...

hmmm I am not about strange fruit...maybe mango lol

*Naomi* said...

i have seen that fruit all over the place! it looks so interesting!

I don't think I tried a bizzaro fruit. I would count durian fruit but I really did not care for it. I may need to find kumquats. They sound like something I would like.

Andrea @ said...

Sounds like a great recipe!! I love anything quick and tasty! Plus I bet these really stick with you, fullness-wise. Thanks!
I guess my favorite bizarre fruit is a pluot which is a plum apricot hybrid. Very tasty!
