PROTEIN PANCAKES MIXED TO CALORIE PERFECTION
Ever wondered what the best protein pancake mix is? Try our deliciously healthy protein pancakes in a bottle, packed with all the right ingredients, without any of the added nasties. Not only are these pancakes high in protein, but they are also gluten-free and an excellent source of fibre.
To take the mess and waste out of pancake making, International Protein’s high protein pancake mix comes in a convenient two serve bottle. Just add water up to the line, shake and cook. Making breakfast has never been so quick and easy. Each serving makes two large pancakes and packs in a whopping 20g of protein from WPI. Add toppings such as cacao nibs for a chocolate flavour, peanut butter, or berries and yoghurt, but they are delicious on their own as well.
If you don’t want to use all the protein pancake mix immediately, you can store the remainder in the fridge, and it will be good for up to two days. The pancakes are tender and light with a subtle maple flavour, and they taste so delicious that you won’t even notice that they are healthy!
PROTEIN PANCAKE INGREDIENTS
Coconut flour is a popular low carbohydrate, high fibre flour source due to its fantastic taste and rich nutrient levels. Coconut flour is the perfect alternative to regular flour, or the maize flours often used in gluten-free products. Coconut flour supports your digestive health and can also help to maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level. Plus, it contains medium-chain triglycerides, boosting your metabolism and providing a steady release of energy.
Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)
The whey protein isolate used in all of our products comes from health and happy grass-fed cows. Grass-fed WPI has a better nutritional profile than its counterparts, offering more Vitamin E, CLA, and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to improved heart health, eye health, and may be a mood-booster. WPI is low in carbs and fat and is an extremely pure, high-quality protein. It also has less lactose than other forms of whey, so it is more easily digested by those with lactose intolerance. Whey protein isolate contains plenty of branched-chain amino acids to aid in muscle tissue repair and muscle protein synthesis.
Egg albumen, or egg whites, are full of protein and add to the nutritional profile of this product without adding a lot of calories. They contain almost no fat and minimal carbs while bursting with protein. Egg albumen is more slowly digested by the body than whey to continue a steady supply of amino acids into the system for an extended period of time.
HOW TO MAKE PROTEIN PANCAKES
Whether you are looking for a scrumptious breakfast to start your day or a healthy dessert choice that won’t blow out your macros, these tasty pancakes are a great choice. They take very little prep time; simply add water up to the line on the bottle, shake well, and pour into a hot frying pan. Once the top is bubbling, flip the pancake over and cook until both sides are deliciously crispy. No more messing around with a recipe, trying to perfect the method. Get these pancakes right the first time! As they already have a subtle maple taste, you don’t need to add any unhealthy sugar-based syrups or butter over the top. You can consume them as-is or opt for protein-rich Greek yoghurt over the top. Other pancake topping options include blueberries, melon, stewed apples, or cottage cheese. If you want an extra-tasty treat, we love to mix Gourmet WPI protein powder with a no-added-sugar yoghurt and pour on top. Or you could add some sugar-free cacao powder to the yoghurt for a chocolate substitute.
