Tasty Tuesday - Protein Pancakes

July 25, 2017, by Nicole

Hi Everyone! I'm Nicole from Nick & Nicole + 4, and I signed up to post today’s Tasty Tuesday thinking I would have time to make something magical and take the best photos of said magical food. Instead I gained 24 pounds in 2 months and am drinking shakes to live. So I was thinking about what I’ve made lately that’s healthy and remotely pretty, before living off of shakes! Also, I like the ramble.

And my protein pancakes win the prize!

While I’m eating healthy, I still want to have Sunday breakfast with my family. It’s my day off, and I love having a big breakfast. However, I don't love how many carbs are in some of the foods I love (especially when I’m counting Macros!) so I found these low carb, high protein pancakes on Instagram.




What you need:

1 Scoop of your favourite Protein Powder 
2tbsp Coconut Flour
3oz egg whites
1tbsp baking powder
2-3tbsp water (add more till you get the correct pancake-y consistency) I’m real technical ya’ll. Just mix together and should make 5-6 pancakes!

I top mine with Walden Farms sugar free syrup and I make a peanut butter drizzle out of water & PB2.  Add Bananas & Strawberries and call it a day. The Macros are: 10g Carbs, 2.9g Fat, and 41g of Protein for this combination of the Protein Powder I chose plus toppings. Only 260 calories. What?! (if you add the light whip cream it’s a bit more – that was more for a photo!)
  

We also make ‘1carbwaffles’ which are to die for.


1 Carb Waffle:
1 Scoop Protein Powder
1 egg
Sprinkle of Baking Powder
2tbsp –(ish) of water

Mix, and then put in your waffle maker. Makes one waffle only but filling with toppings!! Macros are: 19.1 g Carbs (I put more fruit on the waffle, so not really 1 carb, but who doesn't add fruit c'mon) 5.6g fat, and 30.6 protein (No PB2 on these – just Walden Farms Syrup)


If you're like me, and trying to watch what you eat, and want to eat macro friendly foods - here are a few of my FAVE sites (or if you just want to learn what Macros are....it's pretty interesting)


And on Instagram I follow:

Eat.and.Repeat (honestly one of my favourites!!!!! Follow this girl - best food ideas and pretty photos of pancakes!)

And for those of you who are going to ask, when I actually follow my macros and don't gain 24 pounds (it's almost gone don't worry) I use Avatar Nutrition to calculate mine!

I hope someone makes these! And has learned something  - ha!



I'd love to see what you're all cooking  - don't forget to link up!
