Cooking Non-Traditional Breakfasts with Rebecca & Holly, Part 1: Protein Pancakes!

Check out our cooking video on YouTube!

Quick and Easy Protein Pancake Ingredients:

1 cup almond meal or flour (we used Trader Joe’s “Just Almond Meal”)

2 duck eggs (or 3 chicken eggs)

3 tbs coconut oil, melted – 2 in the batter and 1 on the pan (preferably unrefined from a glass jar)

Dash of sea salt

Blend all ingredients together and spoon onto a low/medium pan, cook each side for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Yields about 6 small pancakes (about 2 servings).

Topping Options: grass fed butter, grade B maple syrup, fruit, cinnamon, nuts, peanut butter, jam

This is a great healthy breakfast because it’s quick and each serving (about 3 pancakes) has about 24 grams of protein. This is a nice high amount that’s great for stabilizing blood sugar.

Stabilizing blood sugar helps support energy, mood, adrenal function, weight loss, and healthy digestion.

Like I said in the video, for people who need more protein and fat this is a great meal. For those who do well with carbs, adding syrup or fruit is a great way to sweeten up this dish.

Since this meal is gluten free and dairy free, I recommend it for many of my patients who are sensitive to these foods.  Additionally, using duck eggs is helpful for those who may not tolerate chicken eggs.

Nutrition Facts:

1/4 cup almond meal contains:

15 grams fat

5 grams carbohydrates

3 grams fiber

1 grams sugar

7 grams protein

1 duck egg contains:

9.6 grams fat

1 gram carbohydrate
