Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week... Breakfast of Champions!

If you've been training long, you know all about the oatmeal/protein pancake. 
It's a standard during certain training phases. But there's also those times
where oatmeal isn't welcome at breakfast. You can still enjoy some tasty
pancakes, with syrup, without oatmeal - or any other "flour".  This is a speedy
treat that you can embellish according to what your diet allows. My photos show
them topped with sliced banana, but you can use another fruit, or omit the fruit
all-together. Fast, easy, tasty, and full of protein... enjoy this Breakfast of

Chelle's Champion Nutrition Pancakes
recipe by Chelle Stafford


  • 2 scoops Chocolate Champion Nutrition Pure Whey
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut butter (butter, not oil. Coconut butter is the ground flesh of the coconut).
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • *optional: Fruit to garnish

  • Blend together everything but the fruit, until smooth.
  • Reserve about 2 Tbsp of batter. 
  • Heat a skillet to medium-high, then spray with cooking oil.
  • Pour out batter, flip when pancake is lightly bubbling and you can slide a 
  • spatula under it. Cook briefly, then remove to a plate. (I made 3 pancakes with 
  • this recipe).

Use reserved batter as syrup, drizzling over the pancakes and fruit (if using).
Eat 'em while they're hot!

TIPS: Make pancakes thinner by spreading out the batter and lightly
shaking/sliding the skillet to widen the pancake to a "crepe", then fill with
the fruit & drizzle with syrup.
