We’ve been fasting the last few days in preparation for Turkey Day. Needless to say, by the time this morning rolled around, The Lady and I pretty much had one thing on our minds:
Second thing on our minds?
We have a pretty good keto-friendly holiday spread in the works – turkey, stuffing, green beans, kabocha, and of course pumpkin and pecan pies!! But, before we can get to dinner, we need something for breakfast – you know, to break our fast :). We decided pancakes would be a good idea. We’ve had my pumpkin spice pancakes recently, since we are having kabocha with dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert, I decided blueberry would be a good choice. I know, berries? It’s just a quarter of a cup so the carbs are not an issue for us. If they are for you, just leave them out – you could even sub in some chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds for something different. Go ahead, play with it! Sorry there’s only one pic, my battery died before I could plate them up and there was no way I was going to make her wait for it to charge :).
Ready? This is dead simple and only 4 YES 4 ingredients. How cool is that? I’m going to do the nutritional value on the pancakes with additions, adjust them according to your preferences.
Hobbit's Protein Pancakes
- 1/2 cup vanilla whey isolate (low carb – I use Dymatize Elite)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Heat up a skillet on med-high heat. It’s hot enough when a drop of water bounces around before it evaporates.
Whisk the eggs until frothy, then add the rest of the ingredients and whisk to a batter.
Pour a little oil of you choice in the skillet, let it heat up for 30-45 seconds, then using a measuring cup or ladle, pour about 1/4 cup worth of batter per pancake in the skillet. When you start to see bubbles pop up in the middle and there’s a good line of them around the edges, flip. They should puff up nicely. Remove and repeat when the bottom is a nice brown.
