Hold Tight For These Tasty Quinoa Power Protein Pancakes

Posted by Joe Wicks in Recipes

If you love pancakes after a workout then this recipe is perfect for you? The quinoa not only provides your muscles with carbohydrates, it's also a good source of protein.


75g pre-cooked quinoa

50g porridge oats

1 banana, roughly chopped

2 scoops (60g) chocolate protein powder

75ml almond milk

1/2 tbsp coconut oil

handful of blueberries and raspberries, to serve (I added some pineapple for this one)

1/2 tbsp reduced-fat Greek yoghurt, to serve

drizzle of maple syrup, to serve


Place all the ingredients apart from the coconut oil, berries, yoghurt and maple syrup into a blender and blitz until you have a smooth batter. 

Melt a little of the coconut oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. Spoon in small pools of batter – I normally manage four puddles of 1 1/2 tablespoons.

Leave the pancakes to cook for about 1 minute. When bubbles begin to break on the surfaces, flip your pancakes and cook for a further minute.

Remove the pancakes to a piece of clean kitchen roll and blot away any excess oil. Carefully wipe the frying pan clean with another piece of kitchen roll and repeat the process with the remaining batter.

Pile up your pancakes, scatter over the berries, dollop on the yoghurt and drizzle a little syrup over the top.

⋆ Top tip: Take advantage of the different flavours of protein powder. I’ve gone with chocolate for this, but vanilla or strawberry would work well too.

Goan fish curry? Yes please ...

This curry recipe is super easy to make and tastes incredible. If you don't like fish, you could also use 250g of skinless chicken breast fillet instead. This is a also a good one to batch-cook and freeze when you're prepping like a boss.

Hold tight for the eggs baked in avocado

This is becoming a bit of a signature dish for me. I've posted it a few times, and I love seeing people make it at home and share it on Instagram. It contains more healthy fats than you can shake a stick at . . . oh, and it's got bacon too, so you know it's going to taste as good as it looks.
