Recipe: Protein Packed Almond Pancakes



If you loved my recent Low-carb Cinna-Coconut Pancakes, you are going to love these pancakes! Almonds are used in a variety of our Quest Protein Bars and for good reason. Almonds provide protein and fiber, contain the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 and are rich in vitamin E. The high fat amounts in almonds are monosaturated fats, which is great for the heart. With all the great benefits of almonds I decided why not make a pancake! These pancakes are packed with protein, good fats, and low in carb.

Ingredients: Makes 7 pancakes2 cups almond meal/flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
4 egg whites
½ cup water + 2 tablespoons
1 tsp cinnamon
3 packets stevia

Directions: Preheat a non stick pan and mix all ingredients together. Pour batter onto pan by using 2 spoonful’s. Flip when the pancake starts to slightly bubble. Makes 7

    What kind of protein powder do you recommend?

    How does one pancake equal to be only 142 calories? 2 cups of almond meal/flour is about 1,280 calories (160 calories per 1/4 cup) and if you divide just that into 7 pancakes that equals out to be about 183 calories per pancake. I entered all the ingredients in and got about 232 calories total per pancake. Instead of thinking of eating about 300 calories with some sugar free syrup, I ate almost 500 calories!
