Recovery (Protein) Pancakes


I calling these pancakes ‘Recovery (Protein) Pancakes’ because I used ON’s Recovery 2:1:1 powder to make them. Why is it called Recover 2:1:1? Because of its 2:1:1 blend of carbohydrates (waxy maize: glucose: fructose), 2:1:1 ratio of proteins (whey protein isolate: casein: egg white protein powder) and 2:1:1 blend of aminos (Leucine: Isoleucine: Valine). It’s designed this way to hit the system with fast-digesting carbs and sustained-release protein and aminos to allow for one’s optimal recovery  post-workout. This makes powder is a lot higher in carbs than our usual protein powders though; that’s why I’m calling these Recovery (Protein) Pancakes. Ready to give them a shot? Because they’re really easy to make – all you need are three ingredients – and they turn out pretty much like regular pancakes!


1 fat scoop vanilla 2:1:1
2 fat scoops rolled oats
2 egg whites + 1 whole egg


You just blend it all together and panfry it on a hot-hot-hot nonstick pan that’s been further nonsticked with some coconut oil. As soon as you spoon your batter onto the hot-hot-hot pan (so that it sizzles upon contact), turn down the heat to medium to ensure you don’t burn the lot and end up with sadface. Aaaaaand, that’s it!

I ended up with 15 perfectly fluffy mini pancakes and ate half of them spreading some Nutella over a few after a particularly demanding day at the gym. I am trying to replicate the Nutella actually, to create a healthier version for you guys that lacks all the hm-hm ingredients and improves its macros to allow for a higher-protein stack of pancakes. I think it can be done. No, scrap that. I KNOW it can be done; it’s just a matter of time.
