Power Breakfast - Protein Pancakes

Breakfast is by far the most important meal of the day. Your body has been fasting all night and it needs fuel to fire up the metabolism furnace.

One product that I have found to be invaluable is vital wheat gluten. It can be found in most groceries (usually in the organic / healthy eating section). It can also be found at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. It is usually with the flours and baking goods. Vital wheat gluten is the protein portion of wheat. It can be used in most recipes that call for flours.

My current power protein breakfast consists of vital wheat gluten mixed with Egg Beaters® to make a batter. I then cook it like you would a pancake. It is full of protein and taste very good. You can experiment with the ratio you prefer for the consistency desired. You can use Egg Beaters or eggs (or mix of both). You can add in some cinnamon, vanilla or flavoring to add to the breakfast experience. You can also use low sugar preserves to put on top of it and YUMMY.

Stay tuned………
