For the Protein Pancakes
- 2 scoops nutraMetrix TLS Vanilla Nutrition Shake
- 1 cup almond flour (or substitute with coconut flour; both are healthy options)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
- 2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
- 1 egg
- Fresh fruit (such as berries, bananas, or sliced peaches), for topping
1. Prepare the Protein Pancake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the TLS Vanilla Nutrition Shake, almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to combine.
2. Add Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter or oil, and egg until well combined.
3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
4. Cook the Protein Pancakes: Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or oil. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side.
For the Homemade Syrup
A healthy homemade syrup can be made using natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar, which offer more nutrients and fewer refined sugars compared to traditional syrups.
Here’s a simple recipe for a healthy homemade syrup:
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup natural sweetener (honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- In a small saucepan, combine the water and natural sweetener of your choice.
- Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
- Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract if using.
- Let the syrup cool slightly before transferring it to a jar or bottle for storage.
- Use the homemade syrup to top your protein pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, or your favorite breakfast dishes.
This homemade syrup is a healthier alternative to store-bought varieties, as it contains no artificial flavors or preservatives and can be customized to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy!
