Protein Pancakes

Standard

A lazy weekend treat, which you don’t have to feel guilty about! You can substitute with other protein powders but these two I have tried and tested. Whey protein tends to make the pancakes more soggy in my opinion.

Ingredients

160g gluten free flour

20g hemp/ rice protein powder

1 tbsp. xylitol

1 tsp. baking powder (gluten free)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 bananas mashed

140ml almond milk

The Road to deliciousness

  1.  Put all ingredients into a bowl and whisk.
  2.  Melt some coconut oil into a frying pan and add a spoonful of pancake mixture, as sides begin to bubble, flip pancake over. (You can keep the pancakes warm in the oven whilst you make the others.)
  3.  You can serve the pancakes with nutella if you are feeling naughty or a berry sauce made from handful of frozen berries warmed on the hob and then blended.

Marmite Dippy Eggs and Soldiers

Standard

Have you ever tried marmite with eggs? It’s heaven! Okay I know it doesn’t really qualify as a recipe, but you have to try this….with or without gluten free bread!

  1.  Boil your egg to soft boiled, however you like it. I use an egg timer which you place in your water and it tells you when your egg is soft, medium or hard boiled. You can buy one here (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ashley-Colour-Changing-Perfect-Boiled/dp/B00478GF5A/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1413132107&sr=8-5&keywords=egg+boiler)
  2.  Toast your bread (I use gluten free Genius bread)
  3.  Coat your toast in coconut oil and marmite to taste and cut into soldiers.
  4.  Enjoy!

Ingredients (Serves two)

2 English Muffins, cut in half

200g Halloumi – sliced

5 eggs

1 tsp. Mixed Herbs

1 chilli

1 lime

2 tsps. Mustard

Handful of Spinach

The Road to Deliciousness

  1.  Lightly toast the muffins under the grill (they’ll be toasted again later)
  2.  Put the slices of halloumi in a frying pan and fry each side until golden (you do not need any oil in the pan.)
  3.  To make the omelette: Crack eggs into bowl, beat and add herbs. Put some oil in your frying pan and the egg mixture. Using a wooden spoon or spatula pull the cooking egg to the middle of the pan and pour the still runny egg into the gaps in pan. Continue to do this until the egg mixture is no longer runny. Then fold the omelette in half in the frying pan.
  4.  Whilst omelette is cooking. Make the sauce…
  5.  Grate the lime and then squeeze the juice into a bowl. Add the mustard and diced chilli. Blend until consistent (spreadable without being too runny).
  6.  Spread half the mixture onto the muffins and place back under the grill for a minute (or until ready)
  7. Once cooked, add omelette to toasted muffin and glaze with remaining mixture. Serve with a couple of spinach leaves.

Zing!
