My Favorite Breakfast

Updated: Jun 30

Protein Pancakes!

When I'm training and sticking to "the plan" this is my Go-To breakfast. I drizzle a little honey on top and BOOM, I'm ready for the day. If I have a super long, slow workout on the schedule, I'll slather a tablespoon or 2 of almond butter on top instead to get some fat.

These were one of the OG recipes when I first started working with RD.Veronica and I remember thinking that there was no way I would finish eating them! They were so big, and so filling! Up until my time working with her I was under-eating, and that was why I couldn't shed my excess body fat. Wow. What an eye-opener.


Shopping list: bananas, rolled oats, egg whites, vegan protein powder, fresh or frozen berries

Anywho: PROTEIN PANCAKES!!!

1 small banana

1/2 cup Rolled Oats

4 egg whites

1/2 scoop Garden of Life Sport Protein (or protein powder to get the right consistency in the batter)


Mash all of these ingredients up together until they are a pancake batter consistency. (Sometimes I get crazy, and add maca powder if its runny... I know, too much, too soon. Stick to the recipe!)

After the batter is done, add 1/2 cup of berries like blueberries, chopped strawberries, etc.

Cook them in a heated skillet and enjoy with aforementioned honey or almond butter.


If you're on the road, or need a mobile snack, throw them in muffin cups and bake then in the oven on 350 for 45min (or until not gooey in the middle).

If you don't have any muffin cups, you can put them in a baking pan, then cut into squares after they've cooked and cooled (AND... you could have a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream on a warm square in the evening for a not-so-guilty treat!!)
