Instagram is probably the worst place to be when you’re hungry after a tough workout. Some how everything looks way too delicious and like a mission to make but sometimes its actually way easier than it looks.
A while ago I stumbled across a video on Instagram of a guy who highly recommended these pancakes as a good post training meal and treat… it made so much sense and all he used was hand ground oats (yes he used his hands too actually grind them😂) , banana and egg… It’s the best post training meal for me me as it ticks my boxes. Healthy, filling and easy. For a little extra boost you can always add some honey, almonds, cranberries, bananas or any fruit you like.
As these are meant to be healthy. .. clean eating pancakes i used my own home made flour (very proud of this😆)
HOME MADE FLOUR :
●about a quarter cup of regular oats (not quick cooking oats)
●about 3 table spoons linseeds
●about quarter cup of coconut flakes (you could toast them before)
I only used these ingredients but you can add anything you like eg. Quinoa,almonds, cashew nuts etc
I tried grinding the flour by hand which didn’t work as well as the guy in the video I did the next best thing. I used the milling blade for my Nutribullet and it worked perfectly. Throw all of this into a blender and mill away! So once you’re done making your own flour you only need a few more ingredients.
●half cup of flour
●one scoop of whey protein
●one whole banana mashed
●quarter cup of cooked oats
●some milk to loosed the mixture when it gets too thick…
(add a tablespoon of peanut butter for added protein yumminess)
I like to get my pan reasonably hot so i get that heating up while I’m doing my prep. I smear the pan with butter… lightly though. I dollop a quarter cup or approximately that amount of batter into the pan and leave it. I wait for tiny bubbles to appear before i even think of flipping them. Each side only needs a few minutes and you can judge they’re ready!
