French Toast Protein Pancakes

When Two Breakfast Foods Love Each Other Very Much…

Last week was my birthday and my bf and I won a trip to the Arnold Sports Festival over in Ohio! The best part about these expos/conventions, aside from meeting all your favorite athletes, HAS to be all the free samples you take home. You get everything from protein powder and bars to t-shirts and super cool hats! This year while we were walking through the booths, we discovered a new brand called “InFITnitude” and they were giving out free samples of their whey protein. I usually just grab the samples stuff them in my bag and drink them later, but InFITnitude had a flavor I have never seen before; French toast. I was immediately excited because I LOVE French toast!! I knew this protein powder wasn’t going to be wasted on just an average shake.

Now this French toast protein powder immediately reminded me of my childhood. My mom used to make me French toast ALL the time until one day I told her I didn’t want it anymore. She decided to continue making French toast, but she cut it diagonally and renamed it “zappity toast” and I would happily eat it. Our morning conversations would go something like this:

Mom:”Swasti do you want some French toast today?”

Me: “Uh no, but I DO want some zappity toast.”

Mom: (LOL this idiot child) “Okay.”

I decided to combine my childhood love of French aka zappity toast and my adult love of protein pancakes and combine them into one ridiculously bombastic protein pancake stack! This recipe combines a few of my favorite things.

  3. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter by Peanut Butter & Co.

  4. Halo Top Creamery ice-cream, which is a wonderful macro friendly alternative to regular ice-cream. So without further ado, I bring to you French toast protein pancakes!

Cooking Instructions


Pancake Ingredients:

  • 40g cinnamon roll oats from myoatmeal

  • 32g French toast protein powder by Infitnitude

  • 92g egg whites

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 45g fat free Greek yogurt (I use Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt)

Toppings: 

  • Sugar free maple syrup (I used Maple Grove Farms which I got at Target. You can use Walden Farms pancake syrup or any maple syrup you want to, just make sure to update your macros!)

  • 45g Vanilla bean Halo Top ice-cream

  • 24g Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB&Co peanut butter

  • Pinch of ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Throw your oats in a blender/food processer and grind till fine oat flour is formed.

  2. In a bowl, mix all pancake ingredients and whisk till a batter like consistency is reached.

  3. Spray a pan with pam/cooking spray and ladle your batter in. Cook like you would a regular pancake and continue making pancakes till you’ve used up all the batter.

  4. Assuming you’ve stacked your pancakes, spread the peanut butter on the pancake that tops the stack. Then add the Halo Top icecream, dust it with some ground cinnamon, and top your entire stack with the pancake syrup.

  5. Enjoy!!
