INGREDIENTS:

60g Vanilla Whey Protein

30g Peanut Flour

100g Blackberries

Zest of 1 orange

50g 0% Greek Yoghurt

2 Egg Whites (70g)

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder.

Enough milk to form a thick batter (i.e. Unsweetened Almond Milk for less calories)

Sweetener of choice (i.e. Stevia as it’s practically zero calories)

Cooking oil spray


METHOD:

1. Put a large frying pan on a low to medium heat (when cooking with protein it’s always best do it slow and low as it tends to burn easily
2. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl first. Then add the egg whites and mix
3. Add the zest of the orange to the bowl along with half the blackberries
4. Slowly add the milk a little at a time until you have a thick batter (if you rather thinner pancakes, add more milk)
5. Spray the pan with cooking oil and drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot pan
6. When you see bubbles start to form on the top, carefully flip each pancake over and allow to cook for about another minute
7. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate with some kitchen paper under them to allow it to soak up any moister that tends to form underneath
them (don’t stack them straight away if still hot otherwise they tend to get soggy)
8. Top with the Greek yoghurt, more orange zest and any remaining blackberries
9. Serve with Maple flavour Zero Calorie Syrup
