Protein Blueberry Pancakes

I truly did not plan to, yet I woke up Sunday with an intense craving for blueberry pancakes, so I decided to come up with a healthier version than what I would have gotten at the diner, plus there’s bacon at the diner.   I combined several recipes to make the most delicious blueberry pancakes I have ever tasted!  They may not be like grandma’s pancakes  – hence the protein supplemented to increase the protein content but they are delicious!  Here is the recipe:

1 Package of Advocare’s Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake
1/2 cup of unbleached flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon

1 large egg (or 2 eggs whites)
1 small apple pureed with 1/2 cup water (or unsweetened applesauce)
Optional: 1 tsp sugar (or other sweetener optional. I didnt add the sugar since the berries were sweet)

Mix with fork or blender until coated, then put 1/4 cup batter into hot skillet of thin coating of oil (I used olive). Top with spoonful of blueberries. Once top begins to bubble or edges get golden brown, flip and cook for few more minutes.

Make 8 small cakes or 6 medium cakes. Serve with scrambled eggs. (As your shake blend will only get you about 6 grams of protein if you eat 2 cakes, and you need more! and I estimate you will get about 12-15 grams of carbs )

Now this is a treat, I only eat pancakes like 2 or 3 times a year so make this for those rare occasions or you can make it a post – exercise meal with again eggs and fruit if you have a intense workout ( ie. very hard)   Enjoy!
