Nutritious post workout pancakes

Pancakes after training are always a delicous treat for me, which is why I developed this post workout pancakes recipe.

My first healthy pancake recipe was a very simple two ingredient recipe back in 2014, and I’ve been adapting and improving it ever since.

This version of the recipe came about as I wanted the pancake mix to hold together better without affecting the simplicity of it.

And of course, I wanted to still keep it quick and easy to make.

So the very basic egg and banana pancakes now have a couple more ingredients. They’re now easier to cook, and taste even better.

They also have more protein, which is important for post workout nutrition. And still no added or refined sugars.

This recipe makes one large pancake, which I find very filling once you add your fruit, yoghurt and syrup toppings. Simply adjust the quantities accordingly if you’re feeding more than just yourself.

Try these topping ideas to keep your pancakes refined sugar free:

  • Microwave 1/2 cup of apricots (fresh or unsweetened tinned) with the juice of 1/2 an orange for 45 seconds to 1 minute.

 

  • Microwave 1 cup of strawberries until warm and syrupy, add a little vanilla essence.

 

  • Add a couple of spoonfuls of plain Greek yoghurt or kefir.

Recipe notes

Make sure that the pan is well greased – I find that an oil spray gives a nice even coating, which is important when cooking pancakes.
