Ok so I am a little obsessed with getting on the pancake bandwagon but I just cannot get to grips with the whey protein recipes so have tried one instead using porridge oats, cottage cheese, 1 whole egg, 1 egg white and cinnamon - and it is gorgeous :D I am going to have it in the morning with banana. Not as protein heavy as some of the others but good enough for my stage, methinks.

The help required is, I made enough mix to do me tomorrow morning and the morning after - will it keep? I have it in a glass jug in the fridge with cling film over it. Nice as it is, I'd rather it didn't kill me!

Food for today....I really need to eat a bit more but i just wasn't hungry today!

B - Granola with semi-skimmed milk
S - 100g each red grapes & pineapple

  1. Sounds good, think I'll try one like that - I think the texture of cooked protein powder is horrible so I'm not keen on making pancakes with it.
    Can't see why it wont keep - I've left all the ingredients separately for a day or two before.

  2. They are yum aren't they! I haven't made the mix in advance before but I do plan to as I want to make sure I can do it for when I am back at work next week and don't have time to make it! Let us know!

  3. You have given me a fantastic idea of making up my pancake mix in advance and freezing it - thank you!!!

  4. Well it worked a treat and the mixture was fine this morning, and I'm hoping will still be fine tomorrow morning! Shall post pics on todays post....
