I am a big fan of breakfast food. I love pancakes, waffles, eggs, omelettes, granola, and, well, let’s just say that I like breakfast. When I started Trim Healthy Mama, I loved their Trim Healthy Pancakes (page 259 in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook). I decided that I wanted a good pancake to use in any fuel setting, especially for a Fuel Pull meal, and I wanted it to be dairy free as well. I also tend to like large servings, and I wanted to be completely satisfied after my pancakes. After some trial and error, I ended up with these delicious pancakes.
These single serve pancakes are quick and easy (you may recognize that as a theme with my recipes). In fact, I don’t like getting a lot of measuring spoons dirty, so I only use one measuring spoon (1 Tablespoon) to measure all of the ingredients (start with dry ingredients before wet ingredients). In case you have efficiency aspirations like me, 1 teaspoon is 1/3 of a Tablespoon.
I also like the fact that I get a nice amount of vitamin C in the form of baobab with these pancakes. Bonus! If you don’t have any Baobab, feel free to leave it out and slightly reduce the liquid.
You may notice that these don’t have a lot of protein in them. For added protein, I like to enjoy some coffee with a scoop of collagen for breakfast along with my pancakes. Other options would be to add some Canadian bacon, cottage cheese, yogurt, or a mini frappa.
The beauty of these pancakes is that they are FP and can be used in any fuel setting. Are you in the mood for a delicious S meal? Enjoy these slathered with butter with some bacon and eggs on the side. Do you want some E carbs? Add a piece of fruit or slice a small banana on top. Enjoy the recipe as is if you want to keep this in the FP setting. They are delicious with some berries! I enjoy adding 1/2 cup blueberries to them to make blueberry pancakes. (Be aware that the oatmeal adds 6 net carbs.) The sky is the limit with this flexible recipe!
Pancakes - THM FP
These pancakes are low fat, low carb, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and a THM FP. This is a single serve recipe. You can keep them Fuel Pull by using FP friendly toppings. Use them in an S setting by slathering them with butter and adding a couple of eggs. Use them in an E setting by adding some fruit to your meal. The sky is the limit with this flexible recipe!
- 3 tbsp Baking Blend (THM brand or another FP homemade mix)
- 2 tbsp Dry Oats, Ground
- 1 tbsp Baobab Powder
- 1 tbsp Gentle Sweet (or equivalent sugar free sweetener of choice)
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 pinch Sea Salt
- 6 tbsp Egg Whites
- 3 tbsp Nut Milk of Choice
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- Coconut Oil Spray
Preheat your griddle or pan to medium-high heat.
Grind the dry oats in a small coffee grinder.
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together until combined.
Let the batter rest for a minute to allow the dry ingredients to absorb the wet ingredients.
Lightly spray your pan with coconut oil.
Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup or less for each pancake.
Cook until each side is golden brown.
