Homemade Almond milk and protein pancakes!


This recipe was so easy and fun to make I wish I could take full credit for it! The brain behind this one however,  is Anna Sward from Protein Pow(d)er. (She definitely has the power when it comes to cooking with protein!) Seriously, her website will REVOLUTIONIZE your cooking- protein no longer just has to be gulped down with milk, but can be used as a very versatile and nutritious ingredient in ssoooo many other
foods.


So, who guessed you could make your very Almond milk at home. It's ridiculously easy and way cheaper than store bought versions.

Almond Milk

You need: 1 cup of almonds
                  2 cups of water to make the almonds milk with
                 1 tsp vanilla essence
                 1 tbsp honey

1. Start off by soaking 1 cup of roasted almonds in water overnight.


2. In the morning, drain then off and throw them into a blender with 2 cups of water. 

3. Add the honey and vanilla and blend baby blend (: Stop once its liquid like and milky. 

4. Strain ( using a sieve ) over a bowl and keep the almond pulp ( its the secret ingredient for the pancakes!!)


Store the yummy milk in a glass milk bottle in the fridge (: 

Now for the Protein Almond'y' pancakes

You need :

1 egg
1 scoop of Whey protein powder ( I used this one)
1/4 tsp baking powder
 1/4 cup of almond meal ( the left over from the milk)
1/2 tsp honey
Mix together and cook!.


I enjoyed mine topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt and blueberries.
