Here's a quick little something that is perfect as breakfast, lunch, dessert, or perhaps just a snack!
I mentioned it to a couple of friends, and they requested that it should definitely be posted up on the blog, and here it is!
Muscle Chocolate Pancake
(Makes 1, about 155 calories, this depends on the protein powder used though, excludes topping)
1 egg white
15 g (2/3 scoop) vanilla protein (or chocolate...of course!)
1/3 tsp baking powder
2 topped tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp agave nectar
50 ml semi skimmed milk
100 ml water
- Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, adding a little bit of stevia or more syrup if you want something a little sweeter.
- Let it sitt for 5-10 minutes before frying in a small-ish non-stick frying pan on low heat. Once you can see that the top is slightly cooked through, flip over for 1-2 minutes until done.
- Serve with syrup, peanut butter, jam, or anything else that takes your fancy! I decided to have it with a little bit of peanut butter and a sprinkle of dessicated coconut, mmmmm!
Also, today...I walked past a little something that brought back lots of memories of young Julie running around in grandmother's garden, harvesting currants of all colours, gooseberries and plums from the plum tree in the Autumn when all the berries were gone. It was super cheap and who can resist cheap sentimental things? Especially when it requires a little bit of creativity too - my favourite!
And so I bought a bush of my favourite berries, red currants (!!!) and planted it into a large pot!
Content plant! I will let it stay indoors for a few days, as it's been quite windy over the last couple of days. Then, I will set it out in the common backyard. Hopefully Spring wont be too ruthless, and in a year and a bit, there might be berries! Fingers crossed!
