Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

Who doesn’t love pancakes on a weekend morning – or every day of the week, I’m not judging. I love this Kodak Pancake and Protein pancake trend that everyone is on because it kind of feels less guilty for eating them all the time. You get good carbs in, and protein – something we all need.

Well, for those of us who are Gluten free (and Dairy Free) we’re still searching for protein pancakes the accommodate our dietary restrictions. If you’re new here, I am Wheat and Dairy intolerant. This means I have a low tolerance for foods including these, but I can still have small amounts occasionally. I generally save these splurges for when I eat out, because who wants to limit themselves when you eat out – not this foodie! So when I cook at home, I typically tend to be pretty strict. I will note, this recipe is certified Gluten free – but the pancake mix does include traces of milk, so those with allergies, can take what I’m using here and maybe find a different Dairy Free Gluten free pancake mix and suppliment.

I honestly just followed the instructions not the box of the pancake mix and did a little twist on my own ingredients, but they came out pretty good! You’re going to be using Trader Joes GF Pancake Mix, and Orgain Unsweentend Plant Protein Power. Orgain is Vegan and Gluten Free – use the previous link and code Taygreeleyblog for 30% off your first order of Orgain.

Mix the dry mix first. Wisk the eggs and water separate, then slowly mix together. Cook pancakes on medium heat, Enjoy!

This is such a good switch to your normal gluten free pancake routine, because lets face it – adding more protein to your diet that we usually lack is always positive.

Garlic Herb Chicken – Quick and Easy Dinner

Garlic Herb Chicken – Quick and Easy Dinner

I am all about a quick dinner you can cook last minute on a week night and have enough leftovers for a few days. This is a dish that you can make in 30-40 minutes and for me -leaves two more meals.

I used a package of Natural Chicken Breast from Trader Joes, and Whole Food’s Organic Garlic Herb Marinade. I typically like to season food myself, but this marinade is amazing! For this dish, I just put it on and tossed the chicken. You could let it marinade in the fridge over night then take it out after work, but it still works well last minute. This can be grilled, baked in the oven, or cooked on the stove. I typically go stove top covered for 20-30 minutes or until chicken reaches 160 degrees internally.

With this dish, I paired seasoned Asparagus and air fried red potatoes. I laid the asparagus out on a cookie sheet, sprinkled with thyme, pink Himalayan salt and garlic powder. I cook at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes then turn on high broil to crisp up. I like mine a little more well done, but make sure you watch and take it out when it reaches desired crispness.

For the Potatoes, I cut red potatoes into 8ths and then toss them with garlic powder and pink Himalayan salt. I used my air fryer that suggests I turn to 350 and place in for about 20 minutes. Follow your air fryers suggested timer. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can cook stove top with olive oil, stirring until potatoes can be poked with a fork (about 15 to 20 minutes).

Simple. Easy. Healthy.
