Protein Pancake Brunch Punch – by Sanja M.


One basic pancake recipe + a hint of creativity = a trio that trully pack a P.O.W. (WOW) Brunch Punch!

Being an Elementary School English teacher in South Korea, I drew my inspiration from something rather..well,  elementary – The Alphabet and colors! Red, Orange and Blue! I think these First graders are bringing out the kid in me(: …

Orange chilli choc Perfect red 1 Whey 2 blueBelieve it or not, but these pancakes are all made from the same recipe ! With exception to one KEY ingredient – the liquidy part.

P. erfect Red is my twist on the classic Red Velvet- substitute the milk for 1/2 a cup of beet puree mixed with a tspn of cocoa and a tspn of vinegar.

O. range Chilli Choc is a delicious combination of sweet and spicy- substitute the milk for 1/2 a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice.

W. hey to Blue is a fresh, fruity mix – substitute the milk for 1/2 a cup of blueberry puree, and a dash of cocoa.

I baked the pancakes and then cut out the letters with a stencil. Ofcourse, you could just enjoy them just as they are too.The Butter beans in the recipe lower the G.I. and add a lovely moistness.

It was really fun making them; have a look on my blog to see more “behind the scenes’ photos and tips.
