Protein Power Pancakes

Protein Power Pancakes

These pancakes are an adaptation from Mix & Match Mama’s recipe and I absolutely LOVE it! It is gluten-free, full of flavor and super easy to make! I hope you enjoy!

Protein Power Pancakes

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a bowl, smash up the banana and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Add a splash of oat milk to thin the batter out slightly (you still want it to be somewhat thick but slightly pourable – I added about 2 TB).

Preheat your skillet over medium heat and cook like you would any other pancake. I topped mine with a drizzle of honey and ate them with fresh sliced strawberries. You should get about 3 pancakes with this batter, which you could freeze some or just eat them all in one sitting, like I do 😉

Purple Power Pancakes

A dear friend of mine created a version of this nutritious recipe for her family after needing to use a bunch of fresh berries that she and her family picked at a local farm. These pancakes are delicious and full of wonderful, healthy ingredients that your family is sure to LOVE!

I have adapted this recipe from hers and I am sure you are going to love it!

Purple Power Pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: about 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 2 TB organic maple syrup
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup organic whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup organic shelled whole walnuts
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Sacha Inchi protein powder
  • 2 TB organic coconut flour
Just poured on the hot griddle. These will puff up when they are ready to flip, about 5 minutes.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your large pan/skillet/griddle over medium to medium low heat.
  2. Place all ingredients in a high power blender and blend on low for 30 seconds, then high for about a minute until well combined.
  3. Butter/grease your pre-heated griddle and pour about 1/4 cup of pancake mix on the griddle.
  4. Let cook on medium to medium-low heat for about 5 minutes and flip (the pancakes should have puffed up and the bottom side should be slight brown).
  5. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes on the flipped side and check for doneness.
  6. Plate and eat! My boys love to stack them and top with butter and let the syrup run down the sides! This recipe makes a lot of pancakes so we always have extra for the boys to munch on throughout the morning (they just grab one a go!).

My Favorite Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

My Favorite Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Since battling Candida and other health issues (which I will address all of this Wednesday), I had to avoid most all fruit (until recently). Which meant I could not have my normal fruit-loaded smoothies. I also struggled to find a protein powder that tasted delicious and was safe for my Candida. That is until Truvani!

Truvani’s plant based protein powder tastes AMAZING! One of the main reasons I love the Truvani company is its commitment to real food and supplements without added chemicals, toxins, and they source only the best organic ingredients. In addition to being certified organic, it is also gluten-free, super clean with just six simple ingredients, and safe for my Candida.

Speaking of, since my Candida is getting better, my doctor and I decided that I could reintroduce a little bit of fruit! I could not be more happier! Now I am able to make smoothies that taste great and cure my sweet tooth!

Without further ado, here is my favorite chocolate smoothie recipe:

Chocolate Plant-Based Smoothie

  • 1 scoop Truvani Chocolate Plant-Based Protein
  • 1 TB organic almond butter
  • 1 TB organic coconut butter
  • 1 TB organic hemp seeds
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins collagen
  • 8 oz liquid of choice (I like homemade hemp milk or coconut milk)
  • Handful frozen organic spinach
  • 1/2 really ripe frozen banana (optional)
  • 1/3 tsp ashwaganda
  • Ice

Blend and enjoy!

Delicious Sugar-Free Fat Bombs

Delicious Sugar-Free Fat Bombs

These fat bombs are DA’ BOMB! Haha! No, seriously, they are the perfect sweet treat but also pack a protein punch!

All you need is carob powder, coconut oil, almond butter, collagen peptides, and salt.

I love using carob powder for many reasons! First and foremost, it is allowed on the candida diet. Secondly, it is naturally sweet and has many health benefits, including that it is low in fat and sodium, contains calcium but no oxalates, it’s high in fiber, naturally gluten-free and caffeine-free, and is a rich source of polyphenol antioxidants. Another BIG plus for those who suffer from migraines, carob does not contain tyramine. Healthline.com states that Tyramime is a byproduct of tyrosine, an amino acid. Foods that contain tyramine may trigger migraine headaches, and chocolate contains tyramine. Carob, however, does not contain tyramine and is considered safe to eat if you get migraines. Also, fun fact…carob powder is Fido-friendly. It doesn’t contain high levels of theobromine, a compound that is toxic to dogs and cats in large quantities. Win win!

Sugar-Free Fat Bombs (Candida-friendly, Keto, No Bake)

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter (pure almond butter – no added sugar)
  • 1/4 cup carob powder
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • Stevia to taste, if needed (I find carob powder to be enough sweetness)
  • Walnuts, quartered

Instructions

Mix all ingredients (except walnuts) together until smooth. Pour into silicone ice cube trays (I like these ones) and top with 1/4 walnut. Freeze. Pop out and eat when you need to cure that sweet tooth!

Go & Tell Podcast with Lauren Greci: Episode 30 with Scharlee Glenn | Living Eternally

A few weeks ago, I was asked on my friends’ podcast to chat about my book, Mercy in the Mess, and when I was chatting with Emily about the next topic for the podcast: living eternally, she immediately told me that I needed to chat with her mom, Scharlee. And boy was she right! Scharlee is so wise and I loved my conversation with her about living eternally. I know you will, too.
