PB&J Protein Pancake

PB&J Protein Pancake

This is a new twist on my Paleo Protein Pancake, and for that matter a new twist on PB&J.

I’m always looking for new, creative breakfast ideas.  It’s really important to add variety to your meals so your metabolism can stay on its toes.  That being said, when you’re not eating grains, dairy, and sugar, it limits your breakfast options.

Enter my new PB&J pancake.  Packed with protein this breakfast keeps me full for hours.  It’s the perfect post-workout fuel to get my day going.

 

PB&J Protein Pancake

3 egg whites

1 scoop protein powder (I like Vital Proteins)

2 tbsp powdered peanut butter

2 tbsp almond milk

2 tbsp strawberry jam

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl
  2. In a non-stick pan spray a little coconut oil spray or a tspn of coconut oil
  3. Pour the pancake batter into the pan
  4. Cook for 5 minutes, until sides are golden brown and bubbling slightly
  5. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes
  6. Top as you please! I covered mine in extra strawberry jam!

Strawberry Jam

Let’s be real for a sec- strawberry jam is good on, well, basically everything!  One minor problem.  The strawberry jam found at your grocery store is most likely packed with sugar.

And why? Berries in season are so naturally sweet.  It’s so unnecessary and crazy how many things contain sugar for absolutely no reason.  But whatever, you do you store-bought strawberry jam, and I’ll do me.

I made this strawberry jam with no refined sugar and it’s just as delicious and sweet!

 

Strawberry Jam

2 16 oz. cartons of strawberries
½ Juice of 1 lemon

  1. Slice the strawberries into quarters
  2. Combine the strawberries and lemon juice in a sauce pot
  3. Bring the strawberry mixture to a boil and reduce to simmer while stirring
  4. When berries are simmered and you can easily whisk through the strawberries (they have broken down) turn the stove off and let cool
  5. Once cool enough to handle transfer to a jar and store in the refrigerator
