Recipe: Healthy Protein Pancake Puffs with Hidden Fillings

Healthy Protein Pancake Puffs Recipe  low fat, gluten free high protein, clean eating friendly, refined sugar free, healthy dutch pancakes recipe, healthy recipes using cake pop maker

I've got to admit something...

I'm someone who is ridiculously uncoordinated at the best of times. But first thing in the morning, I really shouldn't be allowed to function.

You see, I'm a morning person but I guess my limbs are left in la-la land when I wake up as for the first our I'm a fumbling, bumbling idiot. Don't believe me? Last week I managed to smash four glasses at one time. 

I was emptying the dishwasher, stacking the glasses on top of one another as I opened the cupboard with one glass stack in hand, only to have something come flying out at my from the cupboard, smashing the glasses in my hand which then crashed into a second stack, smashing them to pieces to. I wasn't kidding... fumbling, bumbling idiot.

So I have learnt, over the years that pancakes just aren't going to happen first thing in the morning. Not unless I'm feeling like a pancake scramble

I could wait until my limbs decided to wake up - but I'm someone who needs to eat as soon as  they wake up so usually I just go for another kind of breakfast. 

Usually. But last week, I also decided that I NEEEEEEEEEEEDED pancakes for breakfast and nothing else was going to do. Not oats, not breakfast bakes, not toast - nothing but pancakes would satisfy. 

So what does a girl do when she can't control her limbs but desperately wants pancakes? Why, she sticks them in the cake pop maker, of course! ;)

That, my friends, is how these incredible puffs of joy were born. You see, it isn't so bad to be a fumbling bumbling idiot when that makes you realise that pancakes made in the cake pop maker are really just healthy poffertjes or dutch pancakes that are just calling out for delicious fillings. 

Poffertjes was one of my favourite childhood treats. Whenever we'd go to a food festival or market (maybe once or twice a year), we would all split a plate of poffertjes. Even though I hated pancakes at the time (weird kid, I'll tell you!), I loved these little doughy balls of heaven and they're something I always wistfully eye off when we're at the farmer's market, wishing that I wasn't a coeliac. 

But now, I have my own healthy poffertjes recipe that's secretly healthy and high in protein and absoluteeeeeeeeely delicious! Best of all? It's made in minutes and you can fill your little pancake puffs with whatever your heart (or stomach) desires!

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Recent Things: Cuddly Puppies, Baking Heaven and Delicious Eats


Hello my loves! HAPPPPPPPPPY FRIDAY! (I actually just wrote birthday... getting a little too excited there haha..). The weekend is SO close and it's time to relax - or in our case, spend time with some of our favourite people in the world!

I actually had a reason to accidentally write birthday there, however, as tomorrow is my Dad's birthday and in twelve short days, it will be my birthday - so naturally, I have birthday cakes on my mind!

But let me tell you about what we've been up to this week, shall I?

Recipe: Grain Free Cinnamon Sugar Baked Donuts (Refined Sugar Free!)

Healthy Baked Cinnamon Donuts Recipe | low fat, gluten free, grain free, paleo, refined sugar free, healthy, clean eating friendly, healthy donut recipes

Lately we have been busssssssssssssy - but even when you're busy, you still need delicious food, right? Of course! In fact, I think you probably need it even more than you usually do. 

Generally speaking, when both Jesse and I are busy with work, I stick to super quick staples and treats tend to fall by the wayside.... well... that was until I came up with this super easy, super fast Healthy Grain Free Baked Donut Recipe.

Donuts don't tend to be something you can whip up in seconds, however, with this recipe you'll have a batch of piping hot donuts in just ten minutes. Give or take a few minutes to mix together the four (yes, just four) ingredients and allow them to cool just a touch (though we tend to skip that part).

How can you get simpler than that?! Piping hot donuts, made in minutes that are actually good for you! In fact, not only are they grain free (and paleo!), they're also gluten free, refined sugar free, clean eating friendly and probably a billion times lower in calories than their fried counterparts too!

But whilst we've previously been eating them straight up or as our Healthy Chocolate Glazed Baked Donuts Recipe, we decided that this donut recipe was just calling to be doused in cinnamon sugar. 

Forget refined sugar and funky flavourings, though. These donuts were keeping their refined sugar free title as we swapped regular sugar for coconut sugar, giving them a hint of caramel like flavour and a melt in your mouth texture. They do look a little darker thanks to the natural colour of the coconut sugar, however, they taste absolutely delicious!

But there was one problem with this recipe, friends... 

You see, now I have no excuses as to why I didn't have time to make something delicious. But that's okay because it means we always have a delicious healthified sweet treat to call on whenever someone pops around unexpectedly or a donut craving strikes!

Let me share the recipe with you! >>
