Just for the record, saturated fat, found in animal products like cheese, does not cause heart disease.
Cheese is a good source of protein & calcium, and with strong tasting cheeses like goats cheese you don’t need a huge amount (so no excess calories being added) while still getting a lot of flavour.
I like using good quality protein powders in my pancakes (links below), but feel free to substitute for a second egg.
25g natural whey protein (or vegan alternative) such as Pulsin‘s (use code PTC20 for 20% off order over £20)
30g goat’s cheese, chopped
2 tbsp. chives, chopped
½ tsp. bicarbonate of soda
Whisk the egg in a bowl, then mix in the crumbled goats cheese and chopped chives.
Mix in the protein powder and bicarbonate of soda. If you’re using a vegan powder, you might need to add a little water or almond milk, as these tend to absorb more liquid.
Heat a non-stick pan, or use spray cooking oil or a smear of butter or coconut oil.
Pour in the pancake batter and turn the heat down.
Fry until bubbles start to appear then flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Serve with salad or vegetables of your choice – a green salad and beetroot dressed in balsamic vinegar goes really well!
