Judging by the sprinkles, it’s obvious that there’s some type of a special occasion going on here 😉 … Yesterday was my birthday, woo! Anyway, in order to make it somewhat invigorating, I decided to decorate my standard protein pancakes with colorful sprinkles and mask the picture with an exciting filter.
My diet has been all out of wack this week due to dinners and festivities, etc. (I’m a diva and my birthday lasts an average of 2 weeks). AND because of all the extra cake calories, I’ve been getting in some KILLER workouts and super intense HIIT sessions. I’ve also been drinking lots of citrus water (lemons, limes) to detox from the shenanigans. Remember, it all evens itself out in the end 🙂
This morning, to keep the spirit of celebration alive (obviously) I decided to make my normal protein pancakes with some color!
Here’s my recipe:
1/2 scoop protein powder (I used 1 scoop of Optimum Nutrition Protein Energy- Cinnamon, Macros are 1C/1F/10P- Cellucor and Quest protein powders cook really well, also)
1/4c pumpkin puree (really helps with texture and it’s low cal with a big punch of Vitamin A)
3/4c egg whites (6 egg whites)
1/8tsp baking powder
MACROS- 315cal: 34C/4F/36P (without the sprinkles! lol)
Directions: Blend about 10 seconds in magic bullet and put on skillet like a regular pancake! Makes 3-4 medium size pancakes
*I usually add Walden Farms Sugar Free Syrup but they taste fine alone!
**They are also good if you make them for the week and prep them each day as a snack
***Amazing post-workout recovery meal!!
