Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing weekend and a great start to the week! This weekend flew by! I had a great time with Andrew’s family and am happy to report that I stayed completely on track! That’s right! I resisted every temptation: wine, cheese (think mango, brie, smoked maple, the works!), starbucks coffee (we ALWAYS go for walks to starbucks but I stuck to herbal tea), ice cream, freshly baked bread AND cake. Yeap I had all of these temptations offered to me and still managed to say “no thank you”. Andrew’s dad was quite impressed!
Honestly, resisting these temptations are SO worth it because every single “no thank you” leads to SUCCESS! And after 26 days on the Clean program, I feel fantastic and I, along with others can definitely see the difference just three weeks made!
But let’s get on to today’s new recipe! As I’ve been away all weekend, I came home to a very bare looking kitchen so I decided to use what I did have to create a great lunch to bring to work. One thing came to mind right away…protein pancakes! I knew it couldn’t be my usual protein pancakes because eggs are a bit no-no on the program. So I got to thinking and came up with my Vegan Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
1/4 cup almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 scoop Chocolate Vega One or any other vegan protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 packet of stevia
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp pumpkin
1. Mix all dry ingredients then add in your milk and pumpkin. Mix until well blended.
2. Heat pan at medium-low on stovetop with 1tsp coconut oil or any other cooking oil
3. Carefully take a spoonful of your batter and place on heated pan and pat down. The texture will be more gritty and can easily fall apart. Let your pancake cook for min 5 mins on one side and again, carefully flip over. Repeat until all cooked
4. Top off with whatever you like! I added 100% coconut chips and coconut manna!
This recipe made 5 good sized pancakes. It was a big lunch and could definitely be split in two if need be! They are definitely not the best looking pancakes but they ARE delicious! Seriously, so flavourful!! No need to add any syrup! No joke. I’m definitely going to be making them again. Maybe for lunch tomorrow;) When I love something, I tend to make it often. And I already know, these will be made very often!
Have you ever made vegan pancakes? What is your go to recipe?
