IMG_7976What You Need:

1/2 cup of chocolate (or vanilla) protein powder (I use Optimum Nutrition)

1 whole egg

1 egg white

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup of almond milk

Step 1: Mix protein powder, egg & egg white, baking powder and vanilla in a bowl.

Step 2: Mix in the almond milk slowly, while continuously whisking the mixture.

Step 3: Heat a pan on medium heat. You’ll want to use a small round pan if you want the pancake shape, as the mixture will be very runny.

Step 4: Pour about 1/2 cup of the mixture into the pan and flip once it starts bubbling (after 1-2 minutes).

Step 5: Top with peanut butter, strawberries and a dash of powdered sugar!
