    Cool I somehow made a carb-free pancake...

    Primal Fuel
    As a poor university student, I sometimes need to rely on whey from costco to fulfill my protein requirements. I usually mix it as a shake with coconut milk, but I had a weird urge to experiment last night... and I was blown away by the results.

    Only three simple ingredients...
    2 eggs
    Two scoops of vanilla flavored whey
    Roughly 3tbsp of melted butter

    Stirred into a batter, with a bit of added water for a better consistency. Because of all the delicious butter in the batter, I didn't bother to add any grease to my pan.

    The result?
    Golden-brown on the outside, fluffy white on the inside. An amazing alternative that tastes bread-y and sweet. Not as sickeningly sweet as real pancakes thankfully, slightly denser than a normal pancake though. HIGHLY FILLING.

    Breakdown of the concoction:
    681 calories
    45g fat
    9g carbs (ok, not entirely carb free!)
    60g protein

    Just wanted to share, not sure how many recipes like this are floating around! (Have seen primal pancakes, but usually full of nut-flours and too many carbs for my fat loss)
    There aren't many problems in life that can't be solved by sleeping it off, or adding more butter.

    I tried making the Almond Banana pancakes from the free Reader-Created Cookbook this morning. I substituted Peanut Butter (still converting my kitchen) for the Almond Butter and was really disappointed in how they turned out. I am looking for an alternative to flour for baking/cooking. However, I'm not a big nut fan so using nut-flours are less than preferable.

    Have you used Whey protein powder in other baking recipes? I have a large canister on hand regularly since DH makes protein drinks after his workouts.

    Thanks!

    I've had this recipe on my blog for 3 months, lol. I'm always so happy when people find stuff that works for them

    Pancakes with almond butter works way better than peanut butter, so don't give up! Also, coconut flour works well too. This morning I'm doing coconut puff pancake with fried apple for the kids.


    6 eggs
    1/2 c coconut flour
    enough raw milk to make it into thin batter
    cinnamon
    nutmeg
    vanilla

    preheat cast iron pan in oven at 400 degrees, butter ban, pour in batter, bake until it 'puffs' and looks springy serve in wedges.

    Would the listed ingredients add up to one serving?

    This is the first time I made something solid with whey. Usually it's just shakes. I am excited to see if I can make more simple baked goods.

    It definitely makes a lot of batter. Several pancakes worth, depending on how big you like them.
