Protein Pancakes or Protein Breakfast Cookies? Your Choice!

So I’ve been experimenting with foods that I can make with my protein shake powder,  because let’s face it…liquid food gets boring after a while!

So, this weekend I found a recipe for protein pancakes made with the exact protein brand that I use. The recipe was called Combat Pancakes, and I found it on http://www.bodybuilding.com

Ingredients

Combat Pancakes
2 scoops MusclePharm Vanilla Combat Protein powder
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites
Directions
1. Mix together all ingredients until you achieve a pancake-like consistency.
2. Preheat a pan over medium heat, then spray pan with non-stick spray.
3. Place mix into pan and cook both sides until mix is fully cooked through. Test with a toothpick.

As always I tweak the ingredients of any recipe I find online a bit to create something that fits what’s already in my kitchen, and also fits my macros, and ended up with what looked more like a Combat Breakfast Cookie…lol but still just as healthy and awesome:

Plus I made my own syrup out of medjool dates. Just on a whim, had these little guys in the fridge and dropped 6 of them in the skillet with about 16 to 20 ounces water and simmered the juice out. The result is what’s in the glass container below. Serving size 0.5 ounces. Yields 4 ounces.
