Nutrition per serving: kcal: 423, Protein: 45g, Carbs: 12g, Fat: 21g

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  1. 1 tsp Coconut Oil 
  2. 110g TPW Protein Pancake Mix, Natural flavour
  3. TPW Zero Syrups, Maple Syrup flavour to serve 
  4. 300ml Unsweetened Almond Milk or water 
  5. 6 rashers of streaky bacon 

Method:

For the Bacon:

  1. If using a pan, place streaky bacon rashers in a cold non-stick frying pan and cook over a low heat to start with, once some fat starts to run out, increase the heat and cook for 1–2 minutes on each side.
  2. To grill bacon, first preheat the grill to high, place the rashers on a grill pan and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side, depending on how crispy you like them.

For the pancakes:

  1. Add 110g (four large scoops) of Protein Pancake Mix to 300ml of milk or water
  2. Mix lightly with a fork, be careful not to over mix, the mix should still have a few lumps in it, so don’t worry!
  3. Leave the batter to rest for 1 -2 minutes.
  4. Gently heat a non stick pan with a light coating of Coconut Oil over a moderate heat.
  5. When the pan is warmed then add 2 tablespoons of the batter into the pan, and repeat to form 3 round pancakes in the pan.
  6. Cook GENTLY for one and a half minutes until the pancake begins to “fluff” up , then flip over and cook for a further one minute until evenly golden brown on both sides.
  7. Keep the first batch of pancakes warm and repeat steps 4-6 with the remaining half of your batter.
  8. Immediately take the hot pancakes out of the pan, top with the streaky bacon and maple Zero Syrup and dig in!

Tips:

  1. To make larger, crepe like pancakes, simply add more milk to the batter mix.
  2. If you’re looking to cut further calories; for either method of cooking the bacon, once cooked you can drain on kitchen paper before serving to remove any excess fat.
  3. Throw a handful of blueberries into/onto your pancakes for a hit of antioxidants, nutrients and added sweetness.
