|High-Protein, Low-Carb "Pancakes"|
Wife: People who see me eat lunch probably think I'm so weird.
Husband, pointing to himself: You mean like this guy?
That was us yesterday discussing my recent brown-bag specials, which have consisted of turkey and cheese roll-ups and chicken salad made with Greek yogurt. I don't eat a lot of carbs - doctor's orders.
So even though the husband wasn't home this morning when I was eating breakfast, I could picture him in his usual spot across the table from me, saying the exact same thing he said to me yesterday afternoon:
Whatever makes you happy, honey.
Well, some might consider this a strange breakfast, but these "pancakes" made me verrrry happy this morning.
High-Protein, Low-Carb Pancakes
Inspired by This Guy
1/2 cup liquid egg whites1 scoop 100% whey protein powder (I used vanilla)
a dash of apple pie spice
Combine the egg whites, protein powder and spice in a shaker and shake for two minutes. The mixture will thicken and begin to look like batter.
Heat a griddle over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour the "batter" onto the griddle. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until small bubbles begin to form. Flip. Cook on the other side.
Continue making "pancakes" until all of the batter is gone. Top with butter spray or your favorite syrup or fruit. Next time, I might even use a little Greek yogurt and see how that tastes.
