Hiya! Today we will discuss about Easy protein pancakes


1 banana
75g oats
3 large eggs
2 tbsp milk (dairy, soya, oat or nut milks all work)
1 tbsp baking powder
pinch of cinnamon
2 tbsp protein powder (whey, pea or whatever your preference)
coconut oil, or a flavourless oil, for frying
nut butter, maple syrup and berries or sliced banana to serve


Whizz the banana, oats, eggs, milk, baking powder, cinnamon and protein powder in a blender for 1-2 mins until smooth. Check the oats have broken down, if not, blend for another minute. Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan. Pour or ladle in 2-3 rounds of batter, leaving a little space between each to spread. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until bubbles start to appear on the surface and the underside is golden. Flip over and cook for another minute until cooked through. Transfer to a warmed oven and repeat with the remaining batter. Serve in stacks with nut butter, maple syrup and fruit.

Chorizo & broad bean risotto

Heat the oil in a medium-sized pan, then add the bacon, shallots, garlic and chorizo. Gently cook for 8 mins, stirring occasionally so everything cooks evenly. Stir in the rice, coating all over with the cooking juices in the pan. Add just enough stock to cover the rice, bring to a simmer and gently cook until all the liquid is absorbed. Continue adding the stock a ladleful at a time, and gently cook. Just before the final ladleful of stock, add the broad beans and stir through, cooking for 3-4 mins until tender. Remove the chorizo, slice thinly, return to the pan and mix through before serving.

Heat oven to 200C, 180C fan, gas 4 and line a baking tray with non-stick paper.

Mix the peanut butter with the garlic, curry powder, soy sauce and lime in a bowl. Some nut butters are thicker than others, so if necessary, add a dash of boiling water to get a coating consistency. Add the chicken strips, mix well then arrange on the baking sheet, spaced apart, and bake in the oven for 8-10 mins until cooked, but still juicy.
