Fitness model Jen's Jewell shares her protein pancake recipe.

I start my day with a solid meal of protein and healthy carbs, which provides me with energy for the day right from the start and helps to provide fuel for my workout.

Generally with breakfast I’ll drink both water and have one coffee with light, unsweetened almond milk in place of coffee creamer. Using the almond milk adds flavour without the addition of fats or sugars that many coffee creamers have.

Ingredients 

1/3 cup oats

4 egg whites

½–1 scoop of whey protein powder

1 tbsp almond milk

2–3 strawberries or berries of your choice, chopped

What You’ll Do

Mix all ingredients up and cook on stove as you would regular pancakes

Top with fruit and sugar-free syrup
