Me Gots Power

 

Most Thursdays, I end up having more time in the mornings. It’s a nice change of pace from my usual get up and go. I usually end up making it one of my long workout days (45 minutes of cardio plus 45 minutes of weights) but I woke up SO SORE this morning, that I decided to use my time to “power up” in a different way.

Protein “Power Up” Gluten Free Pancakes!

When my brother and I were little, we were OBSESSED with He-man and She-ra. My brother would hold up his He-man doll and yell “ME GOTS POWER!”. I always think of that when I make these pancakes!!

In the mix:

1 1/3 cup Gluten Free Bisquick, One large egg, One cup of milk, 2 scoops of Vanilla Whey Protein Powder, 1 tbsp. Chia Powder

Whisk together:

The batter will be thick and creamy! Cook in a heated pan prepped with spray oil and Voila!

I enjoyed mine with fresh cut strawberries and local honey.

SO good!! The vanilla from the protein powder gives these a sweet touch without overdoing it.

And between the protein and the fiber, I suspect these will hold me over well in to lunch time!

Anyone else catch the Cougartown finale last night? So funny, but parts were definitely confusing! Like why was the guy from Community in the background of one of the shots, and the cross over character Ted from Scrubs?
