Protein Pancakes with Popcorn
There's not much that's more appetising for breakfast than a pancake stack, and this one's pretty darn appetising. The basic recipe is below, using both whey and slow release proteins and then it's up to you on toppings and sauces! This one has popcorn n for an added crunch...
In a bowl, whisk together your egg whites and liquid until the mixture has doubled in size and is nice and fluffy! Whisk the sweetener and baking powder into the egg whites.
Now add in the rest of the ingredients, continuing to whisk until they are well combined. Then leave the mix to rest for 5 minutes.
Now grease your frying pan (we use coconut oil) and heat the pan on a medium heat. Drop a tablespoons worth of mix in to the pan; cook on one side for three minutes and then flip and cook on the other for around 2 minutes!
Keep doing this until you have a mighty stack!
Now go toppings crazy and ENJOY!

(makes 12 pancakes)
- 50g of egg whites,
- 50ml of liquid (this can be a fruit juice, coconut water, dairy and non-dairy milks etc)
- 1 teaspoon of sweetener (I use natvia or truvia, you could use any that you fancy),
- 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder,
- 15g of Neat Nutrition Whey Protein
- 10g of Neat Nutrition Slow Release Protein
- 25g of flour (remember that coconut and almond flour are more absorbent so will require more liquid).
Optional add ins; superfoods (maca powder, beetroot powder, matcha powder), chocolate chips or cacao nibs, raisins or other dried fruit, granola and obviously cacao powder!
Toppings; go crazy! I love chocolate sauces (cacao powder, yogurt and sweetener mixed together), peanut butter, caramel, sugar free syrups or just a simple layer of yogurt!
