3 Vegan Plant-Based Protein Recipes


We love protein, but we’re a little sick of chugging down a shake EVERY DAMN DAY. 

After receiving a special delivery of our fave plant-based protein from our friends at Myprotein, we decided to mix things up and put it to the test in the Fitcover-kitchen.

There are 101 ways to incorporate your favourite protein into tasty treats, and we’re here to share three with you today.

Fluffy Vegan Pancakes 

Sometimes a shake just doesn’t cut it for breakfast, and you’re desperately craving something of a little more. Something of serious substance – like pancakes!!

Try this simple recipe: 

•    1 cup all-purpose flour
•    1/4 cup of your favourite plant-based protein
•    1 tbsp baking powder
•    1/2 tsp sea salt
•    2 tbsp of natural sweetener (stevia, date syrup, agave)
•    1 cup water + more as needed!

Method: 

1.    Mix all the dry ingredients together
2.    Add your sweetener, followed by the water. Mix until your batter is combined. Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly smooth, just add small amounts of water until the mixture is thick but well-combined.
3.    Heat a non-stick pan OR add a knob of coconut oil to grease the pan
4.    Cook your pancakes over medium heat until small bubbles appear, then flip them over!
Serve with a spoonful of your favourite nut butter and a sprinkling of fresh fruit, and you’ve got yourself a delicious, protein-packed-pancake!

Marvellous Mousse 

There’s nothing more decadent than a beautifully fluffy chocolate mousse and so we’ve got the perfect one for you.

Eat it for breakfast, lunch or dessert, this baddie is so healthy it really doesn’t matter!

Try this simple recipe: 

•    ½ Cup of non-dairy yogurt
•    ¼ Cup of your preferred non-dairy milk
•    1 Tbsp of chocolate protein powder
•    1 Tbsp of raw cacao (to make even more chocolatey)
•    1 Tsp of psyllium husks
•    A Tincy-tiny bit of natural sweetener (stevia, date syrup, agave)

Method: 

1.    Mix all of the ingredients together and spoon into a glass
2.    Put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours (be patient!)
3.    Take your marvellous mousse out of the fridge and enjoy!
