Chocolate Pancakes

Postby SarahC » Tue Feb 13, 2007 2:11 pm

These are extreeeemly delicious, if you have the ingredients. There's only about 6g of carbs and tonnes of protein... very filling!

Ingredients:
35g FibreX cereal (available in health food shops or online at http://www.completehealth.com.au or http://www.empowerfoods.com.au )
20g Chocolate protein powder (any brand I guess, I used Nature's Way soy protein)
2 eggs (I used two teaspoons of Orgran No Egg)

Method:
Mix ingredients together in a bowl, fry in a pan, as you do :P

Yum! Sounds good, Sarah!! I wonder if you could use like All-Bran or something like that instead of the Fibre X? What kind of consistency is it?

Not sure about the bran... you could give it a go I guess! I use the "no egg" powder and it is a pretty stiff mixture, depending how much water I add to it. With real eggs I couldn't say :?

FibreX is yummy. Actually, it contains psyllium husks which thicken the mixture and help it to hold together. The bran might fall apart a bit, but why not give it a go.

There's tonnes of other recipes too on the website http://www.empowerfoods.com.au - on the actual site and in the forum part as well. Hungry now :P

Yeah and I reckon soak it in boiling water as well, so it's all mushy.

The ones I make are just oats, egg whites and protein powder which I guess is pretty similar. When you mix it together it does look a bit like vomit (sorry) but they taste fantastic! :P It would probably mix up better if you use the whole egg but I was trying to cut down my cals. Another variety I make is use vanilla protein powder instead of choc and add some cinnamon and grated apple. Mmmm apple & cinnamon pancakes! :P
Liz :D
PS. WHat's this fibre X stuff made of?

I usually put in 4 egg whites (only 17 calories each), about half a scoop of protein powder (prob about 60 cals depending on which one you use) and half a 30g serving of oats (about 60 cals). All together about 188 cals so pretty good considering it keeps you full for aaaages! I always find I never get hungry for a while after eating egg whites.
With the other ones, I just swap choc with vanilla powder and add a dash of cinnamon. Also replace the oats with half a grated apple. Depending on how sweet the protein powder is, sometimes I add some splenda for sweetness. ENjoy! :P

The bran works! I added some psyllium husks though... but if you use real eggs it should be right :D Yum!!!!

Just "invented" another recipe.... it worked alright. I used LSA and psyllium husks (both available in the supermarket) in place of the FibreX cereal.

I mixed up 10g of LSA and about 5g of psyllium husk with some boiling water, then added 15g of chocolate protein powder and one beaten egg (I bought eggs when my friend came to stay but he didn't eat them :oops: ). It wasn't too bad :D

A great dose of fibre and protein with hardly any carbs - yay!

Here's another one that I have been making recently:

Mocha Pancake

45g Bran Plus
1 big teaspoon of instant coffee
20g chocolate protein powder
4-5 splenda tablets (or whatever sweetner you like to use)
1 egg

Soak the bran, coffee and sweetner in boiling water until soft and mushy. Add protein powder and egg and mix well with metal fork. Pour mixture into small non stick frying pan and cook as per usual.

Variations:
- Add some psylluim husks for even more fibre (as if there weren't enough in this recipe already!)
- Use egg white instead of eggs (I've yet to try this, but it should work)
