Sweet Potato/Yam Protein Pancake

An oldie, but a goodie! #Repost

Why not try out this mean grain free version of a pancake? High in protein, full of good low GL carbohydrates and tastes amazing.

You will need:

1. A frying pan
2. A hob
3. An oven or microwave
4. 1 small-medium sweet potato or yam.
5. 125ml egg whites
6. 1 scoop casein protein
7. Vanilla extract
8. 1 tablespoon Stevia
9. 1 tablespoon cinnamon
10. 1 teaspoon baking powder


1. Cook yourself a sweet potato or yam – I used 200g. A couple of minutes in the microwave or about 45-50 minutes baked in an oven.

2. Scoop out the inner flesh into a bowl. (Or if lazy like me, a blender)

3. Add 1 scoop of vanilla or chocolate casein protein (use casein not whey as whey denatures – becomes nothing, when heated). 1 tablespoon of Stevia. 1 tablespoon cinnamon. A couple of drops of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and about 125ml of liquid egg whites.

4. Mix all the ingredients in the bowl until a thick batter.


5. Heat a frying pan on the hob to a medium heat and add a teaspoon of coconut oil.

6. Pour your desired amount of batter into the pan to create your pancake. (You could make 3 small or one big one. Bare in mind that the bigger the size, the longer it will take to cook and could burn the outsides before it is fully cooked through).


7. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes


8. Serve and enjoy!
