For me, breakfast is really tricky. I love having a healthy start to the day, but this unfortunately mean’s that it’s not just a 2 minute cereal and milk job. My brain physically cannot handle complicated recipes and vast ingredients before 8am, so I am glad I have found another quick and healthy alternative to add to my weekly food plan.
I am extremely wary of pre-made mixtures of any kind and usually stay far away from trying them, but having heard such good reviews from MyProtein’s chocolate pancake mixture I thought I’d give it a try. The dietary table is impressively clean with just 1g of sugar per 1 and a half scoops alongside only 3g of fat and 32g of protein, so admittedly I was reluctant towards it’s taste, but the results really were amazing.
Here is my 5 minute recipe:
- Add 2 scoops of mixture a bowl and add 150ml of semi-skimmed or almond milk
- Add any extras to the mix (honey, natural yoghurt, small pieces of fruit)
- Fry for 1 minute, flip over and continue for another minute
- Add your toppings
For toppings I chose to add some berries and a banana alongside MyProtein’s no sugar syrup. This is another product to which I was hesitant about the taste but surprisingly, this tastes exactly like a syrup packed full of sugar. I’ve tested it on a variety of people, none of which could tell the difference. It’s available in both Chocolate and Golden Syrup flavours, as is the pancake mix.
