Protein Pancakes

Brunch Music: Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson

I am absolutely jumping on this bandwagon. After hearing so much about this tasty low carb option, I knew I had to try it. And I fell in love. To the point of never feeling the need to make pancakes the old school way again. Maybe not ever.. But they really are that good. We topped ours with a homemade Vermont Maple Yogurt and some sliced almonds for crunch. The extra protein you get from these via the protein powder was a perfect addition after our morning gym session. Try these out, you’ll love ‘em.

Ingredients
o 1 Bananas
o 2 eggs
o 1 scoop whey protein powder
o ½ tsp. cinnamon
o Bacon
o Coconut Oil
o 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
o ½ C. Plain Greek Yogurt
o Sliced Almonds

Start the bacon on a low to medium setting. In a medium sized bowl mash the banana and add in the 2 eggs. Stir until blended and mix in the protein powder and cinnamon. Grease a skillet with coconut oil, adding the batter once the oil is hot. Flip the pancakes when they bubble around the sides. Mix the yogurt with the maple syrup and top the pancakes with the mixture, finishing with the sliced almonds. Bon Appetite.

Baked Eggs in Avocado

Brunch Music: Wolf by First Aid Kit

As you probably know I live for Brunch. I really wanted to try making baked egg in avocado after seeing it all over the place. So I did just that. My husband was quickly on board, and we went to town on Sunday morning making a delish little brunch. We upped the protein and skipped the carbs being that we just came from the gym. But feel free to pair this with some rye toast. It goes really well with a fresh Orange Carrot Ginger juice too!

Ingredients
o Bacon
o 1 Avocado
o 1 C. Spinach
o 1 C. Broccoli
o Sm. Yellow onion cut into strips
o 5 Eggs
o Paprika

Start by taking a small baking pan and spraying it with a little coconut oil. Preheat the oven to 425. Next cut your avocado in half, removing the pit and scooping out a little bit of the inside of the avocado to make room for the egg. Place one egg in each half and place tightly in dish in a heated oven for 15-20 mins. As this bakes start cooking your bacon. Start on your scrambled egg mixture. Crack remaining eggs into a medium sized bowl and add a dash of garlic powder, red pepper flake, and turmeric. Put aside. Sauté onions on low for about 5 mins with a bit of coconut oil, add in broccoli. Next add in egg mixture and once almost fully cooked, fold in spinach and cook down until wilted. At this point your baked eggs should be just about done. Remove from oven and dust with a little paprika salt and pepper. Plate along side the bacon and eggs.
