Jam Dounut Protein Pancakes (Clean Eating, Refined Sugar Free)

I love donuts, any flavour, cinnamon, jam, chocolate….I could go on and on! But ofcourse they are a huge no no. Why should we miss out on such a yummy flavour..right?   I made some jam donut flavour cookies for my kids the other day trying to keep them as healthy as possible for them  and thought hmmmmmm wonder If I could make a super healthy jam donut flavour pancake. So I attempted it today and I was happy with the result. I bought egg whites in the frozen section of the super market and its so much easier to do protein pancakes instead of wasting the yolks or trying to find recipes I can use the yolks!!    Theres only so much custard you can make before the kids get sick of it!!

Here’s what I did….

Jam Donut Protein Pancakes

1/3 cup egg whites
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder or cookies and cream
1.5 tsp coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp rice malt syrup or honey

Blend all ingredients in a food processor and make 2-3 pancakes and cook both sides.

 

Filling:

1/3 cup chobani plain greek yoghurt
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
sweetener to taste if needed (like rice malt syrup, honey or stevia etc)
Mixed berries or your favourite berry.

Mix all ingredients except fruit in a bowl. Layer some of the vanilla/cinnamon cream layer on one pancake and add fresh berries. Top with another pancake and spread more of the vanilla/cinnamon cream and top with more berries. Add the last pancake on top and spread with remainder of the cream mixture and top with a few more berries. I also microwaved a few berries to warm them then mashed them creating kinda a juicy/jam type thing. Then pour a little over the top. And Voila a healthy alternative to the jam donut…..and just think how excited you will be coming home from the gym after a gruelling workout knowing this is what you are about to eat! Enjoy!!
