I have been looking for a tasty oatmeal pancake receipe and finally found it!!! I used strawberries as my fruit. Cut receipe in half and still made two big pancakes. Wonderful!!!

what can the 20g carbs fruits etc be swapped for?

What type of whey protein is he using? Does it come flavorless?

Posted on: Fri, 08/16/2013 - 18:34

Vanilla is a great option for making protein pancakes. However, there are flavorless protein powder that can be used as well

20 grams of carbs from fruit equals about 350 grams for strawberry/blue. When added all this it just got soggy and not similar to pancakes at all. :-(

So just to be sure ; 1 Cup oatmeal (90 grams) 2 jumbo eggs (i use 4 large cause we dont have jumbo eggs in Norway) and 20 grams for carbs from fruit (350 g strawb/blue mix).

I mixed it all up in a blender with some water and all that other stuff mentioned. Can someone please help this brother out? Thanks :-)

You save the fruit & syrup for the topping mix rest for the batter and cook I’m assuming he means big eggs . I’ve never heard of jumbo eggs

Is there a certain flavor whey to use or do u use a no flavor whey?

Just made these, using regular syrup though. Pretty tasty, I don't regret spending the time. Will likely make again.

cooking protein powder denatures the protein...

Posted on: Thu, 04/05/2012 - 20:40

cooking eggs denatures the proteins. what is the effect on your body's ability to absorb and build muscle with the denatured protein?

Tried these for the first time this morning and I was pretty impressed. A much needed break from the breakfast I've been making every morning during the week when i am pressed for time. Will definitely be making these more often!

wow I didnt know this recipe had some many comments lol Bruno, no new studies have shown Whey doesnt lose properties after cooked. If its dry add a few tablespoons of water and cinamon for extra taste. I mix all the ingredients together before cooking.

Posted on: Wed, 11/10/2010 - 21:52

well mate .. this looks delicious
just a question, I have understood that if you cook the whey protein loses its properties, this is true?

Posted on: Fri, 10/29/2010 - 14:34

Hi Rich,

The amount of grams in a cup depends on the substance. Which ingredient would you like to know about?

Posted on: Sun, 08/15/2010 - 15:34

Posted on: Sat, 08/07/2010 - 06:42

you must blow at cooking because these are deliscious

Posted on: Mon, 07/05/2010 - 18:30

Do you add the fruit after it's cooked or put it in the mix?

Posted on: Wed, 05/12/2010 - 22:12

Very tasty, a little dry though.
I've started making these with one whole egg and two egg whites instead of two whole eggs. They seem to come out moister and they have less cholesterol too.
