Banana and Chia Seeds Pancakes

For 1 serve you need:

One and a half tablespoons of Chia seeds.

One whole egg and one egg white.

One cup of oats.

One scoop of low carb whey protein powder (approx. 1/3 of a cup).

One small banana (mashed).

Dash of almond milk.

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

Two tablespoons of natural yoghurt.

One tablespoon of coconut oil.

Place chia seeds into a bowl with 1/2 cup of water and soak for at least ten minutes. Stir a couple of times. Chia seeds absorb the water and swell into a jelly type consistency. Combine all ingredients into a bowl (excluding yoghurt and coconut oil). If the mixture seems dry, add a dash of almond milk. Bring pan to medium heat temperature, grease with coconut oil. Pour pancake batter into three small pancakes and cook until golden brown. Flip pancakes (it should take 2-3 min. on each side). Serve pancakes topped with yoghurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon and fruit. Enjoy :)


Oat Cookies

For approximately 12 cookies you need:

One cup of oats.

One whole egg.

Selection of dried fruit and nuts (approx. half cup).

One tablespoon of honey.

Half cup of quinoa flakes.

Dash of almond milk.

One tablespoon of coconut oil (for dough), one teaspoon for greasing the baking tray.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until you will get the consistency of dough. If the mixture seems too dry, add a dash of almond milk. Make a roll approx. 5cm in diameter and wrap the roll kitchen foil. Put into the fridge for about an hour to cool down. Remove the foil and cut a roll in approx. 2 cm round slices. Grease baking tray with coconut oil. Place your dough slices on the tray and bake in 180°C preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
