Are you getting tired of protein shakes or bars? It happens! Try these three-ingredient protein flats instead for an on plan swap! The best way to describe the protein flat is a combination of a pancake and a crepe - with endless flavor possibilities. In this recipe I used chocolate protein to satisfy a sweet craving but you cold easily make vanilla protein flats or put a dash of cinnamon in them as well! Enjoy them plain or top with vanilla Greek yogurt (watch the sugar content!) or sugar free maple syrup! Special Thanks to Lisa Gundle for discovering and sharing this recipe.
Below is the basic recipe using only a scoop of protein powder (for me). Check your nutrition plan and adjust the recipe accordingly to esnure you are meeting your required protein intake for the meal. Bonus: If your meal includes essential fats you can top these with nut butter!
One Scoop of Protein (I used chocolate)
¼ Cup of Egg Whites
A TBS of Almond Milk
Dash of Splenda (Optional)
Mix ingredients in a small bowl. The almond milk will help “thin out” the batter just a bit - it can be a bit sticky without it.
Heat a small frying pan on medium high heat. When the pan is hot spray lightly with cooking oil and pour ½ of the batter in. You may use your spatula to spread the batter to get a nice round shape.
Set a timer and watch these carefully! The protein flat will cook very quickly and is easy to burn! I flipped mine at 60 seconds and let it cook another 45 seconds on the other side and it was complete! ENJOY!
