Protein Pancake Success!

After calling myself a lazy chef the other night, I decided to prove myself wrong this morning.

“How dare she call me lazy?!”

I was sort of craving pancakes, so I hit Google to find a good protein pancake recipe.

Thanks to the wonder of good SEO, not spammy SEO, Gina’s recipe for protein pancakes was the third that came up.

I’ve only tried to make pancakes once, and it didn’t turn out well, so I was a little nervous but determined. I realized while I was gathering ingredients that I didn’t have any cinnamon or nutmeg–things that are probably considered kitchen staples–so I skipped those two ingredients. (I also realized that lacking kitchen staples is probably a big part of my lazy cooking problem–I look at recipes and often lack quite a few key ingredients and get frustrated.) The pancakes still turned out just fine without the cinnamon and nutmeg.


I put some sunflower butter on them and served them (to myself) with banana and strawberries, and I’m happy with how they turned out!

    Nicely done! Yes, I would agree…having kitchen staples does make life easier…but on the other hand, I think it’s totally fine to improvise once in a while (or often, in my case).

    Amazing turn out you have there. I, myself, don’t have that much basics in my kitchen so whenever I try a new recipe (or a previously browsed but immediately skipped) I don’t necessarily look for alternatives to substitute for the lacking ingredients. I just make a little calculation in my head and if it sounds healthy and tasty enough, I make do. šŸ™‚

    I don’t know what’s wrong with me sometimes. I go to the groceries and head to the “healthy” section but when I get home, I never seem to have the right stuff for when needed. hmmn.. lol

    Thanks for sharing your success story. Is it easier to prep a week’s worth of these pancakes without the batter going bad or is this a daily prep?
