Friday Favs #2: PB Marshmallow Protein Pancakes

Happy Friday and 4th of July weekend!

Ever since I got my Cellucor order in the mail, I’ve been having fun with breakfast. Making it my favorite meal again and much higher in protein.I’ve even added it to this protein pancake recipe.

This week my all-time favorite has been some protein pancakes. These pancakes are a semi “spin off” my PB2 protein pancakes recipes, which you can check out here. Enjoy!Peanut Butter Marshmallow Protein Pancakes (one serving)

  • 2 Tbps of Flour (oat, wheat, or your choice)
  • 2 tsps Smooth, All-Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Scoop of Cellucor Peanut Butter Marshmallow Whey (or 1/4 cup protein powder of choice)
  • 1 Large Egg’s Egg White
  • 2-3 Tbsps of Liquid (use vanilla almond milk, soy, etc.)
  • 1/4 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Packet of Stevia
  • Dash of Sea Salt
  • Toppings: Chia seeds, raspberries, maple syrup, etc!

Mix everything into a small bowl, except for the egg white and stevia. Be sure to add the liquid slow, depending on your desired pancake thickness. Whisk the egg white and stevia until nice whipped, then add to rest of ingredients. Let mixture sit for at least 5 minutes.

After, take pancake mixture and add in the egg white. Take a pan, spray it with non-stick cooking spray and turn the stove on to a low-medium heat.

Cook each side for about 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat and top with what your heart desires!

Question: Do you get in a breakfast rut?

What’s been your go-to breakfast this summer?

I was in a big time cereal rut for about 3-4 months of my pregnancy. Now I am changing things up again 😉I’m linking up with Heather and Katie for Friday Favorites. Thanks for hosting ladies!

PB2 Protein Pancakes (Recipe)

Good afternoon y’all 🙂

Even though I may be too “late” for #pancakeSunday, I though I’d share these with you anyway. I bought some PB2 this week and decided to make a variation of my protein pancakes with it.These pancakes have 17g of protein per serving, but if you’d like to bring it up to around 24g, you can just sub the PB2 for an extra tablespoon of protein powder. I used Genisoy natural soy protein shake powder for these, but your choice of protein powder would work too; vanilla or chocolate maybe?I can’t wait to get my sample of Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl to make these (but with plain oats). I’ll let you know when I make them. But for now, enjoy!PB2 Protein Pancakes (makes one serving)

  • 1 Packet of Sugar-Free Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal (or use 1/3 cup of plain instant oats)
  • 1 Tbsp of PB2 (plain or try some chocolate)
  • 1 Tbsp of Protein Powder
  • 1/4 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg’s Egg White
  • 3-4 Tbsps of Liquid (Use water, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, etc.)
  • Dash of Sea Salt
  • Toppings: Chia seeds, raspberries, maple syrup, etc!

Mix everything well into a small bowl, except for the egg white. What I like to do is let this sit overnight and then add the egg to the mixture in the morning before I cook it.

I find that it cooks better but if you are pressed for time, let it sit for at least 5-10minutes. After, take the pancake mixture and add in the egg white. Take a pan, spray it with non-stick cooking spray and turn the stove on to a low-medium heat.

Cook each side for about 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat and top with what your heart desires!

Question: What’s your favorite kind of pancakes? Regular, chocolate chip or maybe pumpkin pancakes?!

WIAW #109: 50 Shade of “Grey”

 Good morning and happy WIAW! 

If you are new to this delicious food party, go check out all the details at Peas and Crayons. Thanks Jenn for hosting, enjoy! Now, let’s being the day with a pre-gym selfie, shall we? Check out my new pullover from Wal-Mart. I am absolutely in love. Oh and in case you didn’t notice from any of my previous pictures with workout clothes, my favorite color is grey. I also have a grey-white pullover too that I wore to the AAAI/ISMA conferece, but I’m really loving this one more. Plus it has thumbholes, well they both do. It’s just a bonus that needs to be addressed.Sunday afternoon, I went to the gym to knock out a cardio session before work. I made sure to prep and three of my meals.

I also picked up a Vega chocolate protein smoothie packet for post-workout fuel. I have been doing much better with keeping up with meal prepping. And cooking up delicious meals for lunch/dinner. Here is some ground chicken with broccoli and grape tomatoes seasoned with Mrs. Dash original. I ordered a Quest bar sampler from Quest Nutrition last week. They had a special for $3.98 and free shipping for two. So I got my current favs; Double Chocolate Chunk and Banana Nut Muffin.I like to have the banana nut muffin for breakfast or my usual oats, chia seeds and not-berries. I have plenty of apples from apple picking to enjoy. Coffee on the side, of course. As for other snacks [that are not Quest bars, apples, thinkThin bars or Chobani] berries, PB2 and a glass of light soy milk are some go to’s as well.For the rest of the evening I am going to relax and prepare for work but before I go, check out this moon from the other night. So beautiful! Question: Are you on top of your meal prepping game? Or do you like to just play it by ear?
