Recently I have been logging my food to see what kind of macro breakdown I’m hitting on a vegan diet. My daily food intake was not at its healthiest, and so I was definitely lacking in protein rich foods.
So now my aim is to hit around 100g of protein daily to improve dietry balance and boost workout results.
It can be a challenge to hit that level of protein on a vegan diet, so I am always looking at diffferent sources of protein to help increase my intake. Luckily I recently found a recipe on Naturally Stefanie’s blog for protein vegan pancakes which I have slightly adapted and ohmygod..they are soooo good!
They are so simple to make – add all ingredients to a high speed blender and that’s it! Ladel the mixture in to a hot pan with oil, and cook on each side until golden. The recipe above makes pancakes for 1 serving and provide around 20g of protein!
The dates make the pancakes quite sweet, but you could add fruits, coconut yogurt or syrup as toppings! Also I realise that my pancakes are not the prettiest and are far from Instagram perfect, however they taste just as good! The yogurt I have used is my favourite (as mentioned in my vegan overnight oats post) – Alpro vanilla.
Fyi – I am currently trying cover a macro ratio of 60:20:20 of carbs, fats and protein.
