High Protein/Low Carb Pancakes

High protein, low carb, low fat, gluten free and only 3 ingredients! Sound too good to be true? Well, believe it. After successfully making a batch of my high protein/ low carb waffles, I decided to experiment a bit. The result is perfection! These pancakes taste just like McDonald’s hotcakes, but for half the calories. YAS!


Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop whey protein
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg whites (92 grams)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (60 grams)
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • any additional sweetners

Heat pan, mix all ingredients and make like any traditional pancake (I prefer to make smaller pancakes so you get more, but to each his own…). Top with any flavored syrup, nut butter, etc. BAM.

Estimated macros:

30 grams protein/1 gram fat/12 grams carbs = 205 calories

ENJOY!
