Perfect Protein Pancakes

After a workout, it is very important to eat a good serving of protein – I aim for about 20-30g but this will differ for everyone depending on your height, weight, intensity of your workout, your goals. It is important to eat protein after a workout in order for your muscles to recover - essentially during a workout what you are doing is tearing your muscles, and protein helps repair them. This is a more interesting (and delicious!) way of getting your protein in, rather than just having a shake or some chicken.




Ingredients:
Serves 2 (or 1 super-hungry person!)

1 scoop (30g) protein powder
2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
1 whole egg and 1 egg white
1tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
1tsp coconut oil for cooking



Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except the coconut oil. I used chocolate protein powder, but use whatever flavour you want, vanilla would work very well too. The mix should be thick enough to pour but not so thin that it will spread too much in the pan. 



2. Heat a frying pan on low heat and add the coconut oil. Don’t let the pan get too hot because otherwise the pancakes will burn before they are fully cooked.


3. I made 3 smaller pancakes and then 1 larger one, but you can make them whatever size you want. I found that this mix was enough to serve 2 people or else 1 super-hungry person. I managed to eat the larger one and one of the smaller ones.



4. They will cook quite quickly; cook until the edges start to brown and they are mostly cooked through and then flip them over to brown on the other side. It should take no longer than 2 minutes per side.

5. Serve the pancakes with some more greek yoghurt, fresh fruit or some nut butter.
