Healthy Cranberry Orange Pancakes

Healthy and flavorful cranberry orange pancakes made gluten-free and high in protein! Is there a better way to start off your morning than fluffy pancakes loaded with tart cranberries and a hint of citrus.


I always like to use bananas in my protein pancakes but you can replace the mashed banana with any starch such as applesauce, pumpkin or sweet potato.

This recipe serves 2 or 1 if you are me but you can easily double it for more servings if needed. I used PEScience Select Protein in this recipe. You can get 30% OFF all PEScience products on their website www.pescience.com

Healthy Super Green Chia Seed Protein Smoothie

Healthy Super Green Chia Seed Protein Smoothie

Healthy high protein chia seed smoothie made from the greenest produce I could find in my refrigerator. A great post workout recovery drink.

I’m trying to be better about using up all of my produce. Anyone else have commitment issues when it comes to the last wilting strawberry in the bunch? Or the last lonely Granny Smith that’s lost it’s juicy crunch because you impulsively bought a bag of apples on sale big enough to feed a family of 10? Maybe it’s just me but I like to buy my fruits and veggies in bulk which sometimes can end it wasted food. So I’ve decided to gather all of my *expiring soon* produce and blend it into my afternoon post workout smoothie. Yay! No more finding rotting kiwis in the back of my refrigerator.

My favorite thing about these brownies besides all the delicious whole food ingredients (hazelnuts, almonds, dates, cocao powder, protein and maple syrup) are that these brownies require zero baking.


 

 

I topped these date brownies with a rich chocolate ganache made from coconut oil, cocao powder, maple syrup and almond milk. The combination of those ingredients equals a velvety chocolate frosting.
