Breakfast is Protein Pancakes

There are so many things you an make ball shaped. Imagine tiny round pizza balls, spherical cheese filled hash browns, and little grilled yaki onigiri rice balls. These all sound amazing, but the cutest thing to make might be pancake balls.

If you’re a pancake fan, and I am, you’ll love Protein pancake, fluffy little pancake balls served up for dessert usually but maybe also as a breakfast food? Fitness peeps, let me know! From what I can tell, they’re a special treat that is usually served around Christmas, but maybe also eaten at breakfast time? Either way, they’re absolutely delicious and since they’re technically a “pancake” I’m calling them breakfast.

Originally I tried to take the powder from Protein Pancakes to try to make into pancake balls, but it was an absolute disaster. I think maybe I didn’t let them cook through enough? Anyway, it was a mistake so I went with a more classic pancake recipe but also whipped up the whites separately so that the balls would be a bit fluffier.

They turned out super cute and tasted even better than they looked. What is it about food being balls? Or if you put them on a stick?! I almost died of the cuteness before inhaling them. A note on inhaling though, be careful when you’re eating powdered sugar. Sometimes I get too excited and it whooshes into my through and coughing abounds. Not a good look. Anyway, hope you make these little pancake balls, either as a special breakfast/brunch or even just as regular one when you have some time.

Protein pancakes are a healthy and well-balanced breakfast idea for a healthy lifestyle. These 4 easy protein pancake recipes will help boost your energy and wont leave you feeling gross afterwards. Banana Protein Pancakes: 1 cup rolled oats, uncooked.

Small Batch Sundays: The Best One Bowl Blueberry Bread Recipe

Now that local blueberries are starting to pop up everywhere, I’ve got blueberries on the brain. I love blueberry muffins, but since I’m still obsessed with loaves, I decided to take my favorite blueberry muffin recipe and loaf it up, small batch style. It came out wonderfully – cake-y and moist with pockets of blueberry jammy goodness and a crispy sugary top. I baked it up on a Tuesday, just in time to slice it up and wrap it into individual pieces to bring on our first summer camping trip!

They were the sweetest part of the trip, and not just because the other other things we ate were instant noodles and hot dogs. Usually I use vanilla with blueberry muffins and bread and such, but I ran out, so I used some almond extract instead and I think I almost liked it even better than vanilla. There’s something about almonds and blueberries that go together so perfectly.

  • 1/4 cup room temp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup blueberries, washed and dried
  • coarse sanding sugar, for the top

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly oil and flour pan a mini loaf pan (6×3 inches or a pan that fits 2 cups liquid) or line with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugar until light. Add the egg, beating well. Add the vanilla.

Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder, and add to the creamed mixture alternating with the milk: flour milk, flour, milk, ending on flour. Fold in the berries.

Spoon the batter into the pan and sprinkle the sanding sugar over the tops and bake at for 40-50 minutes, or until the top is golden and toothpick comes out clean. Cover with tinfoil if it starts to brown too quickly.

Let cool in the pan completely then remove, slice and enjoy.
