Sunday Funday

The title of this post is quite ironic being that I’m sitting here on the computer at work (YES, on a Sunday! 😦 ) Yuck!

Luckily, I get out in a few hours the sun & breeze are coming through the windows so I’m feeling energized =D

I thought I’d quickly share my figure-prep post workout breakfast with y’all 🙂

Pancakes chocolateMy recipe:

1/2c oats

1 scoop ON Pro-Complex Double Dutch Chocolate

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2tsp baking powder

6 egg whites (3/4cup)

TOPPING: 1 tbsp Barney Butter Vanilla Bean & Espresso and Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup

Macros: 522cal/ 42C/ 15F/ 61P

I always start my morning off with 60min fasted cardio and finish with a protein shake and some coffee… About 20-30 min after, I begin my lift and then I eat the breakfast above^^ 🙂 You can always cut cals by taking out the coconut flour, almond butter, etc.

Do you have a special protein pancake recipe that you swear by?? PLEASE SHARE! I’m always looking for more suggestions! (I am buying pumpkin tonight and that’s what I’ll be having tomorrow– it makes the pancakes extra moist :))

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

Ever since I was little I LOVED Reese’s peanut butter cups.  That choco-pnut /salty-sweet/ fatty/ savory/ happy combo wakes up each taste bud and makes the day extra-better.  BUT, I digress.  Because this post has nothing to do with Reese’s peanut butter cups so I don’t want to get your hopes up.

Good news is, I gotchu a substitute 😉 If you want something sweet after your workout, try these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes. They’re yummy they’ll make you happy. Which is really cool 😎 Here’s a low-quality iPhone photo:
