So, a day of high calorie, high sugar food… But it doesn’t have to be. Here you’ll find recipes for healthy, low sugar and high protein varieties! Enjoy, promote muscle building and recovery AND feel less guilty for it! (Toppings listed after base recipes).

Vanilla Pancake;

60g rolled oats,
1 scoop Casein Protein (Vanilla for this would be great),
1 tspn stevia,
A drop of Vanilla Extract,
1 tspn Ground Flax
3 Egg whites,
Skimmed Milk/ Water – to desired consistency.

Blend all the ingredients until happy with the consistency of the liquid and fry in a small amount of coconut oil until firm on each side.

Chocolate Pancake;

60g rolled oats,
1 scoop Casein Protein (choc or vanilla),
1 tspn cocoa,
1 tspn stevia,
1 tspn unsweetened apple sauce,
2 egg whites,
2 tspn Greek yoghurt.
Skimmed Milk/ Water – to desired consistency.

Blend all the ingredients until happy with the consistency of the liquid and fry in a small amount of coconut oil until firm on each side.

For blueberry and kiwi flavours repeat the above but with vanilla casein and add either a handful or blueberries (50g) or 1 peeled and sliced kiwi. (They end up some crazy colours! Great for kids)

Toppings!

Ok so a sensitive subject here but adding fresh fruit (low sugar varieties such as berries), lemon/lime juice and unsweetened jam would be a lot better than the classic heap of sugar!

A dollop of Greek yoghurt/sour cream with a squeeze of lemon juice tastes amazing and is a nice change…

You could also try creating your own Chocolate spread, which would be a lot better and healthier than a bought and packaged version and is super quick and easy;

2 tspn cocoa,
2 tspn milk,
1 drop vanilla extract,
1 tspn stevia.

Add tiny amounts of milk and mix/beat until you reach the desired consistency (a thick spread is best in my opinion!)
