My Favorite Breakfast

Updated: Mar 16

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


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). Take them ON DA ROAD!
