High Protein Rice Pancakes

“Thou should eat to live, not live to eat.” – Cicero

At Spartan HQ, we are committed to changing lives.  You’ve watched the progress of our very own Chris Davis on his road to getting healthy and continue to lose weight under the watchful eye of Spartan coaches and staffers, we bring you daily WOD’s to condition your bodies (sign up to get them in your inbox HERE), and obviously we offer races all over the world – almost 50 venues now – to give a battleground to bring all that training to the start line.  Want to get registered?  Sign up HERE.

Another major component to health and well-being is nutrition.  You truly are what you eat and we want to help our Spartan community with healthy food choices.  To do that, we’ve teamed up with Spartan champion and clean cooking Rose Marie Jarry to bring you some of the healthiest recipes to fuel your Spartan bodies.  Rose-Marie Jarry is no stranger to Spartan Races or the Spartan Podium.  Jarry used to compete at a National level in track and field.  Her event was 800 meters but now she is a Spartan racing fanatic.

Spartan Beast Rose-Marie Jarry

Jarry has been on the Spartan scene for some time.  She discovered Spartan Races when they began 2 years ago.  June 24th 2012 she ran her 16th race since she discovered Spartan racing.  Jarry claims shes’s become “an addict over the last two years,”  She goes on to say, “it’s a lot of fun and very different from what I was used to doing in track and field. I won 6 races, finished 6 times on the podium as 2nd or 3rd place and 3 times I’ve finished 5th.”

You’ll be seeing much more of Rose-Marie in our blog and on our Spartan Race podium!  Up first in the recipe series is her High Protein Rice Pancakes.  Enjoy!

High Proteins, Gluten free, vegan pancakes (Approximately 4 servings)

What’s better than taking your time on a weekend morning than to start your day with a hearty and healthy breakfast? You’ll have all the energy you want and need to kick off an energetic week-end. For those who would like an alternative to regular pancakes, you’ll be served.

2 organic whole eggs   140 cal

3 table spoons of 100% pure maple syrup   200 cal

2 cups of water

1 cup of light coconut milk      45 cal

40 g of brown rice protein 80% unflavored     160 cal         1

1 cup of organic brown rice flour       600 cal

½ of a cup of organic quinoa flour      190 cal

1/4 cup of organic coconut flour     72 calories

2 table spoons of organic chia seed   137 cal

½ tea spoon of Xanthan (optional: gives better texture for the gluten free mix)

1 table spoon of real vanilla extract

386 calories 1 portion (about 3 pancakes)

 Beat the egg and maple syrup together in a big bowl.  Add the coconut milk and the water.

Add the rice protein to the liquid mix, and make sure you mix it well to dissolve all the protein powder before adding the rest of the ingredients.

If your mix happens to be too thick, add a little bit of milk or water.

Pre heat a pancake cooker sheet if you have one and cook thin pancake on it. If you have a regular pan, maybe add a little bit of sunflower oil in the pan to make sure it doesn’t stick.

Be careful, the coconut flour will make your mix thicken extremely quick, so make sure you don’t measure too much.

Serve with your favorite fruit and real maple syrup.

    These pancakes look really good, but are not actually vegan with the 2 eggs. A vegan diet contains NO animal products ever. Plus, eggs fill your body with nasty cholesterol, unfit for a spartan. The protein you get from them are useless in this case, as the brown rice and quinoa flour provide all 9 essential amino acids needed.

    I’m going to make this same recipe, but use Applesauce, bananas or ener-G egg replacer instead of the eggs.

    These look great, but they’re not vegan because of the eggs….
