Heart-shaped pancakes are not JUST for Valentine's Day - treat yourself with love EVERY DAY with these Everyday Love Protein Pancakes!

1/2 scoop Open To Play vanilla protein powder
100g pumpkin
100g egg whites...
50g whole egg
20g natural bran
15g chia seeds
1 tsp instant coffee granules
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dash of cinnamon and salt
1/8-1/4 cup water
Cooking spray

Cook the pumpkin, mash and cool slightly. Whisk the eggs, then combine all the ingredients together (except water) and mix until the batter is smooth. Allow the batter to rest for 5-10 minutes or until the chia seeds turn gelatinous. Stir in enough water to bring batter to your desired consistency. Spoon 4 tablespoons of the batter into a lightly greased pan over medium heat. Flip when bubbles form, cook for a further minute and stack on a plate.

This recipe made 5 generous-sized pancakes, and I topped it with 150g strawberries and sugar-free maple syrup!
