Easy Protein Pancakes

Protein Pancakes

Protein Pancakes

Healthy protein pancakes made in the blender (Vitamix) with gluten free oats, yogurt, banana and an egg!
They’re simple to make, filling and high in protein!
This costs me $5 and served 3-4 people. I already have a large bag of Trader Joe’s gluten free oats on hand, so all I had to by was some frozen blueberries, yogurt and fruit. I usually always have all the below ingredients on-hand though.

Crispy Garbanzo Bean Patties

Crispy Garbanzo Patties

Crispy Garbanzo Patties

Despite not being fried, these biscuit like patties are crispy and have a soft, creamy interior. I consider these a mesh between Falafel and a chickpea burger!

They turned out so much better than I could have imagined and are quite addicting. The exterior really crisps up, but the interior stays soft with a texture similar to hummus. They were great on their own, or use them as a side item!

Did I mention they are super healthy and easy to make?

Easy Sunday Healthy Italian Dinner

Easy Gluten Free Italian Dinner

Easy Gluten Free Italian Dinner

If you grew up anything like I did, it was football and Italian food on Sunday’s. It was something I always looked forward to growing up and something I still hold dear to my heart Even though I live 3,000 miles away from my family back in Virginia Beach, I try my best to keep the tradition alive.

My step-dad is Italian, and an amazing cook! The recipe I’m about to share with you is a twist on his ‘Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs” recipe. Mine is much simpler to make, a tad bit healthier (sorry Dad) and very healthy/yummy!

This recipe’s quite easy to make and everything I got comes from Trader Joe’s. This is my simple “cheat” recipe, meaning it’s a lot of items that’re already pre-made from Trader Joe’s . . but hey, that’s what Sunday’s are all about, right?! J

This meals serves 4 – 5 people at less than $15, total! Yes, you heard that right!
