Wellness Wednesday – High Protein, High Fibre Pancake Recipe

Hey Chicks!

Mama Chick Sarah here. Laura is busy moving today, so in the spirit I of moving I thought I’d present you with a high fibre breakfast recipe to get things moving – if you know what I mean 😉

I love to cook, and as a busy mama, everything I make has to be easy to prepare, unprocessed and low in sugar. This recipe fits the bill!

Pancakes are a fave brekkie of mine, but they are often high in sugar, processed carbs and void of protein and nutrients. Not these ones. I admit, they don’t have the same taste as traditional pancakes, but I actually prefer them now. This is the one I had for brekkie this morning!

  • 1 cup liquid egg whites
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp psyllium fibre (got it at the bulk barn)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 banana, thinly sliced (or any other fruit you like!)
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter

Mix the first four ingredients. Pour into a small lightly oiled pan on medium heat. Lay the sliced banana on the cooking pancake. Flip when ready. Serve spread with peanut butter. Yum 🙂

Makes 1 large pancake – this bad boy has 35 grams of protein and 18 grams of fibre. It kept me full throughout my intense morning workout until I ate my lunch 4 1/2 hours later 🙂

Have a fabulous day, Chicks!
