We all love pancakes on the weekend, but why can't we enjoy them during the week too?
To overcome this, I've created my 'Everyday Pancakes,' that uses ingredients typically found in your average breakfast option, yet still resembles our beloved pancake.
Love Alex. xx

½ cup quick cooking oats
½ cup milk
1 tsp sugar (optional)
¼ tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop of protein powder (I use Vega’s vanilla or chocolate flavour)
½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
Heat a frypan over medium heat.
Grind the quick cooking oats into a flour - I used my NutriBullet.
Add the milk, egg, sugar and vanilla extract into a jug- sir using a whisk until combined.
Now stir in until smooth the milled oats, protein powder, baking powder and salt.
If the batter is looking a little too thick, add a few extra tbsps of milk.
Begin to fry, making them as big or as little as you like.
I have a non-stick pan, but you may need to add some coconut oil or butter to avoid sticking.
Allow the pancakes to cook on one side until bubbles form and pop, then flip over.
Allow to cook on the other side for a further 30 seconds.
Transfer the pancakes onto a plate and repeat the process.
Once no pancake batter remains, top your pancakes with your favourite toppings - I like almond butter, yoghurt, fresh berries and banana slices.
