When I first saw this in the movie, my initial reaction was “gross,” as in this man is so cut it’s disgusting. As in, disgustingly hot.
Another day, another experimental pancake recipe. I tried using ricotta this time. I was hoping for a more decadent experience, but it just made really dense cakes.
Using an immersion blender, I mixed
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 mashed banana
2 tbls egg whites
4 tbls almond milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
I feel like my banana should have been riper, would have made for sweeter pancakes, naturally.
I think so far, the best results have come from using Greek yogurt in the mix.
Chocolate protein pancakes were essentially a failure. I still ate them, but they weren’t entirely right. I used a packet of protein powder, maybe it was the wrong kind of protein powder. The cakes puffed up and fell during cooking, kind of like flourless cakes. I won’t let this misstep derail me. I will try again.
