Eating a low glycemic breakfast sets the tone for your whole day. Avoid the blood sugar spike, keep blood sugar levels low, and insulin levels low. Feed your body with high protein, high fiber, slow burning carbohydrates, and healthy fats instead of sugar cereals, granola, or a fruit smoothie.
This was definitely one of the better protein pancakes I’ve made (consistency wise), it didn’t fall apart and cooked well all the way through. Here is exactly what I did:
1/4 cup large flake slow oats
1/2 scoop casein protein powder (I used chocolate)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp ground flax meal
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp raisins
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
I let it sit for a couple minutes while I cleaned the kitchen during which time it thickened up a little (which is what I wanted) so added about 1/3-1/2 cup water. Mixed again.
Heat large (good quality) pan on medium (if you have more time put heat on low/medium, especially if you are not used to making these)
Spray pan with coconut oil spray
Pour and spread mixture in pan.
Let cook until the top looks like its cooked (few minutes atleast, maybe 5). Then flip it over.
Lower heat to low and let sit for another minute or 2.
I put a dollop of peanut butter on top and spread it out. If you are a bigger person and need more calories you can add another egg to the recipe or eat the pancake with some plain greek yogurt.
I’m full and I will be until after my workout in a couple hours!
