BBF Flavored Pancakes

Compared to most people I know, I eat a very boring diet. Not just in terms of food choice, but also in variety. I see so many recipes with ingredients I wouldn't even dream of combining, cooked and baked in ways I'd never imagine. It would never occur to me to microwave protein powder. Or to combine it with a few different things and then put it in the freezer. Who thinks of things like that?! I'm in awe.

The one cooking thing I AM good at is making pancakes. I love egg whites and protein powder, so I'm always looking at ways to combine them into different pancake varieties. My latest concoction involves Big Bitch Formula and some frosting flavoring. Check it out!

BBF Flavored Pancakes

Flavored Pancake Ingredients
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 scoop Big Bitch Formula - Cake Batter flavor
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 drops vanilla liquid stevia (or powder stevia or Truvia to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp frosting flavor (Duncan Hines) - pick your flavor

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients into blender or Magic Bullet and blend.
  2. Blend and then pour into pan on the stove.
  3. Flip when one side is cooked.
Notes:
You can top with sugar-free syrup or Cool Whip, although these are so good, they don't need a topping. Makes one pancake. You could also include xanthan gum, almond milk, Green yogurt, or cottage cheese, depending on your diet requirements.

The coolest thing is that the pancake is pink, although it's tough to tell in this photo!
I have no doubt that you all are much more creative than I am, so if you have any (carb-free) suggestions of other ingredients that might make a tasty pancake, please share in the comments! Also, if you give these a try, please let me know what you think!

  3. That's a good idea. I'll prob try making this sometime. I sure hate trying to do low or no carb diets, they get pretty hard.
