Adrenal Fatigue Recipes – High Protein Blueberry Pancakes

Fluffy, delicious and easy to make pancakes, have always brought back memories of Sunday mornings with the kids.

But while the memories were great, we’d all feel bloated and sluggish afterwards.

So, after a few weekends testing, we created these – they’re gluten-free, high protein and the perfect breakfast treat – oh yes, delicious and easy to make too. 

Don’t worry if you’re out of blueberries (I keep a stash of frozen berries in the freezer), you can easily add in other fresh-fruit favorites (try banana) or if the kids are helping, even a few chocolate chips!

(Just go easy on the maple syrup – you don’t need any more than a slight drizzle)

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites (around 4 eggs)
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (around 25g, 1 oz or 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 banana (mashed)
  • splash almond milk (add a splash if mixture seems too thick)
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (around 25g, 1 oz or 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Whisk together the egg whites and protein powder.
  • Stir in the mashed banana and add the blueberries. If the pancake mixture seems too thick, add a splash of almond milk to thin it.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a pan to low-medium. Pour in the pancake mixture and cook until little bubbles form(about 5 minutes).
  • Make sure the pancake has set enough before you try flipping it, then flip over. Cook the pancake for another 2-3 minutes.  
  • You can also make 3 small pancakes instead of 1 large.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings, such as sliced strawberries or bananas, or perhaps a very small amount of natural maple syrup or a drizzle of honey.
