Disclaimer: I was given 4 bags of Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder and Nutritional Boosters to review as a Sweat Pink Ambassador with Fit Approach. As always, all opinions are my own.
I’ve been using Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder and Nutritional Boosters for a month now and reviewed the product several weeks ago. Read my review here!
I’ve been adding the Protein Powder and Nutritional Boosters to my smoothies and it’s been great! I drink a smoothie as a snack or as pre-workout fuel. I had my smoothie before my recent trail race and it kept me full during the race and afterward, as I had a late dinner.
Here’s a recap of the protein powder from my previous post. All of the protein powders have 20 g of plant protein. Sometimes I don’t do too well with whey or soy protein so plant protein is a great alternative. Additionally, all of the protein powders have nutritional boosters, too! They have a good amount of fiber and probiotics.
Here are nutritional facts:
- 20g plant-based protein per serving
- 12g fiber per serving (9 g soluble fiber)
- Beneficial Bacillus coagulans probiotics
- Good source of omega-3 fatty acids
- 35% RDA iron per serving
- Gluten free
- No soy ingredients
- No dairy ingredients
I’ve been wanting to try protein pancakes and now that I’m on summer break, it was the perfect time to experiment! I read many recipes online and here’s what worked for me.
Protein Pancake Recipe
• 1 scoop Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder and Nutritional Booster
• 1/2 cup egg white
• 1/2 cup oats
• 1/4-1/3 cup almond milk or coconut milk (I start with 1/4 cup and add a little more if the batter is too thick.)
• 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
• dash of salt
• coconut oil (instead of butter on top)
• Optional: 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut, fruit, peanut butter or other add-ons!
I made a protein pancake with the Vanilla Protein Powder and Nutritional Booster and added blueberries and unsweetened coconut flakes. I used 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes and about 1/3 cup of oats for this batch. The photo of the pancakes is above!
I also made a Lemon and Blueberry Protein Pancake using the Protein and Fiber Nutritional Booster. It was really good except that I need to add more lemon rind next time as I didn’t get much of a lemon taste. I added fresh blueberries to the batter and it was tasty!
The batch yields 2 pancakes. I used a bit of coconut oil to butter the top instead of butter. I love butter but I’m trying to make a healthy pancake so this was the next best thing! It’s not very sweet so if you needed to make it sweeter, Stevia or agave would be good choices. I liked the taste as is and tried to sweeten each bite with fruit.
The oats help to thicken the batter and make it more like a regular pancake in terms of texture.
I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancake with the Chocolate Protein Powder and Nutritional Booster. It was really good! I added peanut butter to the batter itself and also topped the pancakes with some pb!
In the fall, I’d like to make a Pumpkin Chai Protein Pancake with the Chai Protein Powder and Nutritional Booster. It’d be perfect in the fall with pumpkin from the can and maybe pumpkin seeds.
