Vegan protein pancakes for breakfast

Today I want to share with my first vegan protein pancake. The recipe is from Fitfoodmarket and I’m very pleased of discovering this website. The girl who runs the website is from Spain and she is very active and motivational.

I was thinking on how to “veganize” this recipe and finally I tried it. And, here’s the result!

Vegan Protein Pancakes


  • 8 tsp of no-egg (Orgran)
  • 50g oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla-flavoured protein powder
  • 1 tsp rice syrup

Steps: (easy!!!!)

Mix all the ingredients well. Meanwhile, heat the pan with a little oil (only a few drops). Now get the pan really hot, then turn the heat down to medium and, to start with, do a test pancake to see if you’re using the correct amount of batter. It should take only half a minute or so to cook; you can lift the edge with a palette knife to see if it’s tinged gold as it should be. Flip the pancake over with a pan slice or palette knife – the other side will need a few seconds only – then simply slide it out of the pan onto a plate.

That’s all!

With this recipe you can cook 3/4 pancakes, and the nutritional information is:

  • KCal: 328 cal.
  • Carbs: 39g.
  • Fat: 4g.
  • Protein: 17g.

Remember that you can see all my intakes on Instagram and Myfitnesspal.

Have a nice day!!


My first vegan protein waffle recipe!

Some weeks ago I wanted to create or try a recipe for a vegan protein waffle. Until now, I hadn’t found any recipe that convince me. But, finally, while I was reading the MileHighHealthy blog, I found THE recipe.

I finally decided to try this recipe and it’s delicious. My own recipe actually has 30 gr of protein (6gr for every piece of 35gr). I’m gonna add the nutrition values with the recipe.


  • 60 gr of oat flour
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I’ve used Vanilla-flavoured aptonia protein powder)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk plus more as needed

First of all, mix dry ingredientes together and then add milk, blending well. You can you more than 1/2 cup almond milk if you need to create a smoother consistency (I did)

Heat your waffle iron and cook as usual.

That’s all! In less of five minutes you have my waffles ready!


The resulting waffle weighs 170g (394kcal) but I prefer to cut it into 5 parts in order to divide the intake and get a lighter breakfast.


The nutritional values are the following:

For the entire piece (170gr):

  • Calories: 394 kcal
  • Carbs: 50 gr
  • Fat: 8 gr
  • Protein: 30 gr

And for the small piece (35gr)

  • Calories: 81 gr
  • Carbs: 10 gr
  • Fat: 2 gr
  • Protein: 6 gr

In the future, I’ll try a cleaner version of this recipe.

Hello! How are you today?

I hope you are smiling right now, don’t you? why not? every day has a lot of reasons to smile… don’t waste it! 🙂

I want to share with you (like ALWAYS!) my lunch. Beans Salad! In this case, the salad contains; white or butter beans, avocado, carrot, leafy greens, dried tomato, corn, black olives, flaxseed oil and oregano. Yummy!


I love beans! Beans are an important element in my diet. Today I cooked a kind of bean that I bought in Avila, where my father born and grandma lives. Legumes are very good there, and every summer I take the opportunity to buy different kinds of legumes in a small & old grocery.

Do you eat beans?? Yes? No? If not, you must add them in your diet!  They are a MUST for vegans! 

I’ll give you more information to see if I can encourage you to eat more beans. 😛

Legumes are good sources of fiber, protein, iron, calcium, zinc, and B vitamins, and other nutrients that may prevent cancer and heart disease.
Butter beans (white beans in Spain) are one of the most comprehensive pulses from the nutritional perspective. Among the nutritional properties of white beans include its iron content, than the mythical lentils. The carbohydrates of white beans and legumes are generally slow assimilation. Butter beans have both soluble and insoluble fiber. The soluble fiber helps to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels in blood, while the soluble fiber regulates intestinal transit, particularly legumes fiber combat constipation.

Add more beans in your life!
