Protein-coconut ‘scramble’

It is occasionally necessary to improvise when in the kitchen. This morning for example I had intended to make myself a pancake for breakfast, however when I was throwing everything together I realised that I had no eggs- brilliant.

Hmm… what can you use in place of eggs in a pancake? A banana would have worked, but I didn’t have any of those either.

I flipped and flopped and tossed this and that into my bowl. It looked like pancake batter, kind of. Into the pan it went and it was quickly obvious that this creation of mine was not going to hold together. When it was flipped the middle broke out, so close, and yet so very far.

Rather than let it go to waste I scrambled my almost-pancake up. And you know what… throw on some greek yoghurt and strawberries, and you’ve got yourself a surprisingly delicious breakfast!

Protein-coconut ‘scramble’

1 sachet perfect fit protein (or 20g of your preferred protein powder)
1/3 cup almond meal
1/4 cup (ish) unsweetened shredded coconut (or to taste if you love/hate coconut)
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
milk (cow, soy, almond, whatever takes your fancy)- as much as you need to get to your desired consistency

Throw everything in a bowl and mix it up until combined. Heat up your pan/skillet and add your choice of lubrication- butter, margarine, coconut oil. Pour in your batter and form into a rough pancake shape. When it’s time to flip it, do your best to get it all over in one go (the only part that flipped properly for me was the section that stuck to my flipper- it looked sad). Once you’ve got some flipped over, scramble it up! Flick it all around until it looks cooked, it shouldn’t take too long. Plate it up with your toppings of choice. Enjoy!

  1. Kitchen experiments can be really fun! It looks like you came up with a really delicious dish. And you’re more determined and resourceful than me; I’d be so tempted to throw everything in the trash and just eat the strawberries and yogurt!
