Coconut & Almond Protein Pancakes

Hands up who loves pancakes?

Hands up who wants to feel great in their clothes or on the beach this summer?

Hands up who needs to keep an eye on the quantity and quality of their food intake to help achieve that?

Ok so now we have that sorted you will be pleased to know I have the perfect solution for you with these super easy, healthy and filling pancakes that have the added bonus of being dairy, sugar and gluten free 🙂

Ingredients:

Blend all ingredients together and fry in coconut oil then serve as desired. I topped them with some Coyo coconut yoghurt and some frozen dark cherries. The yellow colour of these pancakes comes from the curcumin in the protein powder – great for inflammation so if you used another protein powder they would look and taste different 🙂

These pancakes make a great breakfast as the protein content is high and will therefore keep you fuller for longer and your blood sugar stable – the magic solution for weight loss.

Protein is key for muscle repair so when we exercise we need to ensure adequate amounts and for vegans or vegetarians using a protein powder in smoothies or recipes such as this can really help boost intake.

If you can get away with eating more calories and want a delicious variation then I recommend spreading some cashew butter between 2 pancakes – yummylicous 🙂

Cashew or Almond butter works really well with protein pancakes

Who is Zita?

Someone recently called me “little miss huff & puff” 🙂

However, it’s  said that Saint Zita was the patron saint of housekeeping – not sure that’s true! Also it is a very thick, big pasta – that probably is true 🙁

All I know is that I’m half Portuguese and I’ve still never met anyone with the same first name of Zita. Although my surname (Alves) might sound exotic, in Portugal it’s pretty common and a bit like Smith would be in the UK (no disrespect to any of you called Smith:)

For any of you who don’t know much about me (and my former life as the “cake monster” in my previous career) I recorded a little video ( with a couple of Somerset sheep in the background for good measure).

So hopefully you might understand why I am so passionate about helping people with their health and fitness whether it’s through Zest Bootcamp in Bath, 1-1 Personal Training in Bath & Somerset or online via the Total Body Shape Up Plan for anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Hope to meet you soon
