Festive & Sugar-free Protein Pancakes

The holiday season is known for its eat-fest of cookies, pies, fudges, sweets and different kinds of heavy desserts, with loads of sugars and fatty creams…

Unfortunately there are too few delicious and healthy Christmas recipes…

Yes, they taste may amazing, but the sad truth is that none of them are really healthy, clean or natural.
Then I thought to myself, “what if I make a recipe that will save Christmas?“.

A recipe that looks like, feels like and tastes like Christmas, but healthy and clean, prepared without grain flour or sugar.

Well that’s a big challenge, but I’m up for it. Because fit girls deserve to get their creamy and tasty sweet treats too.

Since my father is diabetic, my mother traditionally makes a healthier dessert for the holidays.

So I decided to step up this year and take the mixer in my own hands!

I came up with the healthiest and yummiest Christmas dessert recipe of all time – my Protein Christmas Pancakes!

LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN! 🙂

Instructions
  1. Blend the raspberries into a puree (don't worry about the seeds)
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients into a blender: the banana, egg, egg whites, coconut flour and the olive oil. Blend them until you make sure they've transformed into a homogeneous mixture It should be thick, but pour-able
  3. Heat a frying pan on medium temperature You should cook every pancake for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown. When the pancake starts getting bubbles, you’ll know that it’s time to flip it.
  4. Separate the coconut milk form the coconut water
  5. Pour the milk in a mixing bowl. Prepare the mixer and start mixing it on medium speed. After a minute, start adding the protein powder one tablespoon at a time, without stopping the mixer. After you finish pouring the protein powder, mix for another minute.
  6. Crease the whipped cream onto each pancake, arranging them one on top of the other.
  7. Mix the 3 ingredients, cocoa, honey and water, in a small bowl, with a tablespoon. Mix them until you get a homogeneous mixture. The dressing should be creamy and thick, but pour-able.
  8. Splash the dressing over your 7-story cake with the help of a tablespoon. To make a nice finish, add a tablespoon of whipped cream on top of the pancakes and a few fresh raspberries. And pour few tbsp of the raspberry puree.

I know that lattice crust can be daunting, especially when you have one million other things to make, but trust me, it is easy one you get the hang of it and so worth it for the wow factor in the end! We guarantee this will be your new apple pie tradition for years to come.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove ready-made pie crust from the refrigerator. Once it has reached room temperate, lay one pie crust into a pie pan. Line the crust with tin foil and place pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes; remove foil and weights and bake until pale golden (about 5 minutes more).
  2. Toss sliced apples with sugars, tapioca, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the lemon juice. Gently fold in the apple butter. Transfer the apples to crust and press gently to make sure fruit is tightly packed.
  3. Roll out the remaining crust disk. Use a knife to cut strips 1 3/4 inches wide. Arrange strips in lattice pattern. Brush the top with 1 beaten egg with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  4. Place pie on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling thickly, about 1 hour and 15 minutes more. Let pie cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before cutting. Serve with whipped cream!
