Cherry Almond Protein Pancakes

Cherry Almond Protein Pancakes with Fruit Salad

Cherry Almond Protein Pancakes with Fruit Salad

Protein pancakes are definitely my most frequently used recipe.  Why?  They are delicious, quick, and healthy, plus they can be adapted to suit whatever ingredients you have available.  They are equally excellent served warm or cold – and the perfect way to get a TON of protein without meat.  The other day I tried a Cherry/Almond combination for the first time, and it was definitely along my favourite combinations!  You can use different types of nut butters, different flavoured protein, add spices/raisins/nuts as you desire, use different fruit in the pancakes (or leave it out all together) – whatever you like!  The recipe below will make too generous portions of pancakes, and should definitely leave you nice and full! 🙂

Mango Banana Bread

I had one mango left that I needed to use before it spoiled, so I thought I’d give a mango bread a try!  I was worried about not having enough mango (I like a lot of fruit in my bread) so I added a banana.  It took awhile to bake, but it was a nice after dinner snack!

Lime Layer Cake

I think this cake is officially my new favourite!  I love the flavour of all the limes, and this cake wasn’t too sour or too sweet.  It was the perfect way to end a barbeque on a sunny Saturday evening.  Continue reading for the recipe, nutritional information, and more photos! (more…)

In case it isn’t apparent yet, I’ve tried lots of lemon-flavoured desserts!  I really liked that this cake was flavourful without being too overpowering.  Beating the egg whites to soft peaks before folding them into the loaf resulted in a dessert that was lighter than many of the quick breads I’ve previously tried.  Continue reading for the recipe and nutritional information (more…)

These muffins are a perfect alternative to banana bread.  With thick yogurt, toasted coconut and chopped walnuts on top, they definitely don’t need any icing!  I ran into some trouble while trying to strain regular yogurt – so I recommend you just buy thick greek yogurt in the first place!  (Regular yogurt will work fine as well, it will just be a bit runnier!)  Continue reading to see the recipe and nutritional information (more…)

I love recipes for desserts that incorporate fruits/vegetables so I was excited to give this Cinnamon Carrot loaf a try!  It ended up being very special – its officially the first recipe that Daniel (AKA official photographer/taste-tester) gave a perfect rating.  With 2.5 grams of fat, this bread is a perfect alternative to greasy carrot cake.  Best of all – it is FAST and very easy!  Click on ‘more’ for the recipe and nutritional information.

I was excited to try this bread, as it looked very attractive in photos.  The twisting wasn’t too difficult, and it sure ended up looking great.  The finished bread was tasty, sweet and airy.  I apologize for the fractions in the recipe – the original recipe this was based on was for three loaves – much too many for me to try and eat!  Click below to see the recipe and nutritional information (more…)
