Orange Cream Protein Pancakes

Orange Cream Protein Pancakes

By Brice Woodard, ABS Team Member

Don't you just love Orange Creamsicles? They are the picture perfect summer snack.

But that's not all. Don't forget about Orange Cream cupcakes. Orange cream anything is a great summer treat. While these taste amazing, they come loaded with added sugar and take quite a bit to fill you up.


On my quest to find a tasty and healthier alternative, I came across some orange zest in my spice cabinet and decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. The orange zest added a nice addition to both the flavor and the color of the pancakes, but made its biggest impact in the sauce.

The sweetness of the sauce is the perfect combination to go with the wholesome goodness that comes with these pancakes. They'll fill you up and hit that sweet spot all in one swoop. Check it out.

Peaches and Cream Protein Pancakes

Peaches and Cream Protein Pancakes

By Brice Woodard, ABS Team Member

Peaches are in season and that makes it the perfect time for peaches and cream! I originally came up with this recipe after going on a peach yogurt binge and realized it would make the perfect topping for some delicious pancakes. 

After some small tweaking, I created this recipe that gives you the protein-packed goodness you can expect from ABS pancakes, as well as the sweet and creamy goodness that comes from peaches and cream. Check it out!

Makes 3-4 pancakes:

Calories: 260

Fat: 2g

Carbohydrates: 24g

Fiber: 6g

Sugar: 16g

Protein: 41g

Ingredients:

1 rounded scoop of ABS Vanilla Cake Batter Protein Pancake Mix

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup egg whites

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp peach-flavored Greek yogurt

1/4 cup diced peaches

Directions:

1. Mix ABS Vanilla Cake Batter Protein Pancake Mix with water, egg whites, baking powder, and set aside.

2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.

3. Spray pan and make three to four pancakes by scooping or pouring out batter into the pan.

4. Cook for 40-60 seconds until bubbles begin to appear and pop.

5. Fold in diced peaches.

6. Flip for another 40-60 seconds until golden brown.

6. Top with peach-flavored Greek yogurt.

This recipe works great with fresh, frozen, or canned peaches, but fresh peaches will provide a sweetness and texture that's hard to get from the frozen or canned counterparts.

If you do opt for the canned or frozen version, adding in Stevia or Truvia can help boost the sweetness without the additional calories. You can also add your favorite sugar-free syrup in with your yogurt topping to make your pancakes a little more traditional. Enjoy!

Apple Pie Protein Pancakes

By Brice Woodard, ABS Team Member

Apple pie is one of my favorite Thanksgiving treats. Even though it's available year-round, I always avoid it. Apple pie isn't always exactly the healthiest food you can put into your body. Avoiding it completely used to be the method of choice.

Avoiding foods altogether can lead to overeating when you do eat it, which is usually worse for you in the long run. Finding a suitable alternative can help alleviate binging on these treats and allow you to enjoy the flavor year-round.

I came across an Apple Pie pancake recipe and made a few modifications to make it a much healthier option with the help of some ABS Protein Pancake mix. Check out what I came up with if you need an apple pie fix as well.
