Protein pancakes + honey butter + strawberry kiwi compote = a very happy Friday!
I’m not much of a photographer so I don’t have any pictures (though I think I’ll work on that) but I can give you the recipe!
Protein Pancakes (yields 3 with 1/3 cup scoops)
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
(Note: I didn’t add sugar in the pancake batter because I know I’m putting fruits over it, but feel free to add 1 tbsp white sugar if you’re skipping out on the compote.)
Combine the flour, protein powder (I personally use Nutrabolics Vanilla), baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a fluid measuring cup or separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, and vanilla. Make a well in the dry ingredients and slowly add the liquid while stirring or whisking (I use a fork vs a whisk or wooden spoon), being careful not to over mix.
Heat up a pan at a low-med temperature (I use 4 on my stove), add some butter, and scoop a 1/3 cup of the batter into the pan. Flip when you see the edges drying out and bubbles forming on the surface. There’s something about the protein powder that makes it get quite dark, but I promise you it’s not burnt.
Strawberry Kiwi Compote (yeilds about 1 cup)
- 85g strawberry (about 3 medium-large berries)
- 85g kiwi peeled and cut (1 whole kiwi)
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1 tsp. white sugar (or honey)
- lemon, to taste
Remove the stems and leaves from the strawberries and cute into cubes. Peel and cube the kiwis, too. They don’t have to look good or be tiny chunks since they’ll break down in the pot. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low (I use 2-3 on my stove). Let simmer, mixing every few minutes until most of the liquid is gone, then serve over your pancakes.
- 1-2 tsp. butter
- 0.5 tsp. honey (or more, to your taste)
Combine, and spread on pancakes as necessary!
Though I think next time if I’m having compote I won’t make this. However I did try it with a pancake without any compote and it was preeeetty good.
Enjoy everyone! Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!
