#CombatProteinPancakes: See a previous post about #proteinpancakes for official details and recipe comparisons, as well as a “syrup” substitute idea. The recipe for the pancakes was originally found on http://www.bodybuilding.com and I tweaked it to fit what’s already in my kitchen.

Macros for another "syrup sub" option

The picture at the top of the post features what I call “Just Plum-Tastic” jam. Homemade jam made from dried plums, better known as prunes..lol! Don’t knock it until you try it!

In a previous post explains how I made another syrup sub called Date Syrup, same concept and instructions can be applied for either fruit, with the exception of grounding the fruit first mixed with water, then placing it into the pan to sear briefly. Let it cool and “gel” then serve!

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.
