After such a jam packed weekend last week, this past weekend was a rather lazy one. I wasn't well and Jesse was heading off to Canberra to work for the week on Sunday afternoon so we decided to soak up as much together time as possible and do absolutely nothing.
Nothing that is except eat pancakes, watch movies and laze about in warm and comfy clothes - our idea of the perfect lazy weekend.
Pancakes have to be one of my favourite meals ever and I think they're the ultimate weekend treat. Whilst we have a million and one pancake recipes that we use, we're always coming up with new ideas and trying different combinations.
Lately we've been adding a protein punch to our pancakes stacks with these Oatmeal Protien Pancakes - and they are so ridiculously delicious we've been whipping up at least a batch a week. They're super thick and fluffy and so easy to make your own.
Mix through some chocolate chips or juicy blueberries.
Add in some thick banana slices for thick, caramelised banana pancakes.
Switch it up with your favourite flavour protein powder.
Make them into peanut butter pancakes by switching protein powder for peanut flour.
Pimp your pancakes with whatever toppings tickle your fancy.
The possibilities are endless because this is the perfect base recipe!
Jesse and I both tend to go our own route when it comes to the toppings. I'm the peanut butter queen who hassssssssss to top her pancakes with an abundance of thick, stick-to-your-mouth peanut butter whilst Jesse prefers to keep it traditional with butter and syrup.
Whatever your toppings or mix ins, you'll have a perfect single serve stack with a whopping 25 grams of protein in just a few minutes.
But enough talking, let me give you the recipe so you can make them yourself! >>
