Pancakes (gluten free)

5

Hi my Friends, I have for you a high protein pancake recipe, so delicious and easy to prepare.

These pancakes you can eat even on a diet plan for losing fat. Just eat less, 2 pancakes for under 400 calories, or more if your goal is staying fit and healthy. The difference between losing weight, maintaining weight or building muscle is not in the type of foods but in the quantity. So adjust regarding your goals!

One more thing: Recently I am witnessing the parents’ struggle to keep kids away from junk sweets. It is so difficult task under the bombing from TV: “chocolate with vitamins”! and other “healthy” staff packed with sugar, high fructose corn syrup and processed fats. Where is old homemade food? I know it is time consuming to cook, but it is important what you put in your body. You can’t put junk in the body and expect to come out treasure, right?

So, no more ramblings, here is the recipe!

Food list for 1 big, tick pancake
1 egg
1 tea spoon pumpkin seeds flour
1 tea spoon chickpeas flour
(or 2 tea spoons any whole grain flour, but it will be not gluten free)
2 table spoons water
Some salt

Filling for 1 pancake
25 gr (1 oz) cheese
Tomato chopped

Motion
I ate 2 pancakes and prepared mixture for each of them separately.

In a bowl mix egg, flour, salt, stir well, add water and stir again.

Bake in a non stick pan. I didn’t put any fat but you can add some. The result is a thick pancake, so if you like a thinner, just use half of the mixture.

Fill the pancake with tomato and cheese, it was so juicy and delicious.

Note: if you’ve never tried pumpkin seed and chickpeas flour you may not like the taste, because it is different. Just use regular flour and it is regular high protein taste 🙂

Question of the day:

Do you cook meals to bring in the office or school? Do you succeed to convert your colleagues and relatives to cook their food?

    I made pancakes with whole grain wheat flour last night. I didn’t use eggs so I added more water. I filled them with home-made tomato sauce and mozzarella. Unfortunately, I can’t find many ingredients in the town where I live, but things are getting better and I think people are more aware of the importance of eating clean and healthy – or I would like to think so 😉
    I bring vegetables, oat meal and low fat yogurt to work and I also eat fruit during working hours. My only colleagues are my father and another relative and so far I haven’t been able to convince them not to eat bagels every day 🙁
