On the weekends that means pancakes from scratch! This protein version of gingerbread pancakes is how I get my shakeology and second breakfast all together for brunch!
Gingerbread Protein Pancakes
- 1/3 cup greek yogurt
- 4 egg whites
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use shakeology)
- 2 T coconut flour
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp blackstrap molasses (mine is from Trader Joes)
Mix all ingredients together, pour onto a griddle -- I made 6 pancakes, 3 per serving. And if you're wondering why these aren't pumpkin pancakes (since I used pumpkin spice) the difference between pumpkin and gingerbread is in the molasses!
The holidays are a hard time of year to stay on track with healthy habits. Trust me, my sweet tooth rules my brain and I have a hard time resisting temptation when there are treats everywhere and wine flowing at christmas parties! I practice the 80/20 rule: during the week I work hard to eat healthy 80% of the time, and when holiday fun is happening, I use up my 20% of indulgence! Recipes like these help make my breakfast clean while still enjoying some christmastime flavor.
I want to share my ideas with EVERYONE on how to stay fit and healthy this holiday season.
