ADVENTURE SNACKS - Protein Pancakes by The Grind!

TIME TO CELEBRATE PANCAKES!

The Grind Coffee House in Howth has, over the last few years, become synonymous with exceptional pancakes as well as top-notch coffee and a friendly & incredibly active staff.  We realise that *technically* pancakes don’t count as ADVENTURE SNACKS! food but contextually this works really well, so just go with it….

The lads very kindly took a bit of time out of their mad schedules (both Darragh & John are personal trainers on top of owning & operating the cafe), to give us the secret ingredients for making their world-famous-in-Dublin Protein Pancakes. Grab a bottle of Maple Syrup and dig in!

The Grind's Protein Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 10 free range eggs
  • 2 semi-ripe medium-sized bananas
  • 2 scoops (48g total) of 100% whey protein (this is a quick-release protein so will get in your system fast!)*
  • 10 scoops oats Odlums Oats
  • 100mls Alpro coconut milk

*Random Protein Fact: The lads go through 20kilos of protein mix every Sunday in the cafe….

Yield:

4 servings (3 pancakes per person)

Toppings:

The world is your oyster when it comes to what (and how much of the what) you put on your pancakes. Make Life Richer and go a little crazy if you fancy it but here’s what the lads from The Grind recommend:

  • Fat-free yoghurt
  • Strawberries
  • Milk choc chips
  • Maple syrup

Method:

Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and blend with an electric hand mixer. If you don’t have a hand mixer, you can also add the ingredients to an electric smoothie blender and combine in batches.

Leave the mix to settle in the fridge for approximately 30 mins (this step is not requisite, but helps to give the pancake mix a nice consistency.

Put a little butter in a hot frying pan and cook pancakes in single batches.

Eat. Enjoy. Be a little smug about your culinary skills.
