Getting back on track and eating less sugary foods . . . yep, that’s right were I find myself coming off marathon training. No longer am I putting in 25+ miles per week on the pavement and my body was well done with the crazy training too! So this week I begin my journey to getting my pre-marathon training self back and part of that is slashing the added sugar I’ve mounted into heaps each day and week into my diet. Crazy it is how totally addictive and destructive one little ingredient can be and trying to kick that habit, I’ve never smoked but I would think cutting sugar is right up there with the battle to stop smoking.
Last week, after much sugar induced thought, I had all intentions of making a yummy sweet concoction with my Mighty Nut Powdered Protein products, but as I sat thinking about breakfast and breaking my breakfast into several meals before lunch, I though pancakes, I WANT PANCAKES!! But I also want to be Mighty in my triumphant attempt to cut the sugar. So as I sat yesterday I thought and though and remembered a yummy pancake recipe that I thought up several years back and decided to tweak it a bit to cut out the sugar I had previously added as an ingredient and substitute protein and peanut butter. What I got was OH SO DELICIOUS! And even more, super simple!!
So here you go, my Yummy Gluten-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes. All cooked and ready to go in less than 10 minutes!
- 1/2 cup gluten-free flour (or you can use Coconut Flour)
- 2 scoops Mighty Nut Vanilla Peanut Butter
- 1 tsp Organic Cacao Powder (you can add more if you want more chocolate flavor)
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup 2% milk or Almond Milk
- 1 tablespoon Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread
Mix all dry ingredients in bowl and stir together with fork until combined. Slowly add milk until texture is just slightly before runny, set aside.
Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread to grease griddle or skillet to prevent sticking.
Pour batter mixture and cook until browned on one side, flip and finish cooking until browned on other side.
Remove from griddle or skillet and serve. You can eat all by themselves or add your favorite syrup mixture or honey.
