THM Recipe: Super Simple Fuel Pull Pancakes

Dear Reader,

I don’t know about you, but I find to hard to find a Fuel Pull breakfast (for more on the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating see here). I am not a big egg eater and egg white omelettes appeal even less.I saw the basic idea for these pancakes online. It amounted to essentially: use protein powder, add liquid, cook. That seems pretty bland so I added a few things. It is still pretty simple though. I will not tell you these are th best pancakes ever. They definitely need something moist on top like sugar-free syrup, maybe Greek yogurt or low-carb jam, but they cook up nicely, hold together well, and have pretty much no fat or carbs.

Fuel Pull Pancakes:

Ingredients:

2 scoops protein powder

1 tbsp xyltiol

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp xantham gum

1 tbsp oat fiber (optional)

splash vanilla

4-6 tbsp water or almond milk

Directions:

Combine dry ingredients. Add vanilla. Add water or almond milk a tablespoon at a time and stir until you get a get a fairly liquid, pourable batter. I had to sue the full 6 tbsp but if you omit the oat fiber, I assume you would use less liquid as well.

Pour the batter a small portion at a time on a preheated skillet. When the top shows a fair number of bubbles, flip it over (it cooks pretty quickly).

A few bubbles are starting to form on the first side.

Cook for about 30 seconds on the second side and then remove from heat.

The first side is done beautifully.

Repeat with the remaining batter. This made 3 and a half small pancakes for me, a good amount for one breakfast.

All done!

All done!

    What are the conversations for trivia or sweet blend? And can I use glucomanan instead of xanthum gum?

    • I would think you could use the same amount of Truvia as xylitol. Do you know if sweet blend is a 1:1 substitution for sugar? If it is, that should work too. My experience if glucco has more thickening power than xantham so maybe try a little less of it. If you make the substitutions, please stop back and let me know how thye worked.

    was wondering what size the scoop is. All protein powder scoops are different. I have one that is 1 Tablespoon size for a scoop. I think thm is 1/4 cup that is quite a difference.

    • I think my scoop is 1/3c though it might be 1/4. Honestly I have bought different kinds and the scoops have always looked the same size so I’ve never thought about it.
