1 Scoop Whey Protein (Optional — My recipe did not have Whey but this can add flavor)
1/3 cup MuscleEgg Vanilla Flavored Egg Whites (If you’re not using Whey Protein – increase to 2/3 cup Egg Whites)
1/2 tsp Baking Soda or Baking Powder
1 tsp Nutmeg
A dash of ground ginger
1 tbsp of Cinnamon (do not leave this out)
Turn stove burner on medium heat using a pancake skillet or regular sized pan. — pancake skillets are cheap and an excellent investment if you make these daily like me =)
Peel or skin your sweet potatoes. Since you aren’t cooking with the skin on there isn’t a need to aerate your potato with a fork. I usually cook up to (2) potatoes at a time in the microwave for 5 minutes.
Weigh out your sweet potatoes to meet your desired macros (7 oz = 40 grams of carbs)
Use a muddle, potato masher or a spoon to mash up your potatoes in a mixing bowl. Make sure there aren’t any chunks. **For best results use a food processor or Vitamix/Blender to mix all ingredients together for the best possible pancake batter.
Combine all other ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix together into your pancake batter.
Spray your pan with non-stick spray or coconut oil (healthier fat over olive oil or canola)
Make 6″ round circles by pouring the mixture slowly into the center of your pan.
Walk away for a few minutes and flip when the mixture no longer is runny on the top and it begins to slightly bubble around the edges.
Cook your other side for 2-3 minutes, remove and repeat with the remaining batter.
Add your favorite spices, sugar free jelly, sugar free syrup, fruit, PB2, Almond/Peanut butter or whatever you fancy =)
Enjoy a delicious, nutritious muscle building pancake that tastes like dessert.
