Macros: 35g Protein, 97g Carb & 11g Fat
A tasty low-fat meal which is ideal for breakfast, dessert or post workout to replenish those depleted glycogen stores from your muscles. This is a fun dish that you can change with different flavoured protein powder and/or toppings of your choice. You can also change the macro profile of this meal by adding something like Greek yogurt and take away the fruit or honey to have a lower carb higher fat version.
• 1 Banana – approx. 180g
• 2 Whole Eggs
• Oats – 20g
• 1 Scoop of Whey Protein Powder – (flavour of choice)
• 1 Apple – medium (for the topping)
• 1 Table Spoon of Honey (for the topping)
I enjoy with a sprinkle of cinnamon, some sliced apple and honey, but these pancakes are just as good with berries and yogurt!
Eggs are rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals with the yolk also containing good cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Bananas provide Potassium, vitamin B6, C, Magnesium & Copper. Oats are a good source of carbs, fibre, including the fibre beta-glucan to bind to excess cholesterol. Whey Protein powder is a convenient way to add in those extra grams of protein in if you struggle to hit your macros.
