I have not had Pancakes for a while and Sunday is the perfect day for pancakes! I love sweet pancakes but have never ventured to the realms of savoury ones....today that all changed- Enter Hulk Pancakes. These are A-OK for breakfast lunch or dinner, I will probably eat them for all of those meals today because they taste so damn good.

Loaded with green goodness, high in protein and healthy fats, low in carbohydrates, this really is the perfect any-time-of-day meal.

Pancakes-

1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup flavorless protein powder (you can swap for extra almond meal)
4 eggs
Few handfuls of baby spinach or kale
1 grated zucchini
1 1/2 cups milk of your choice (dairy, almond, coconut, oat)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Sauce-

2 cups chopped mushrooms
2 cups coconut milk
1 small red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbs chopped fresh thyme

For the pancakes- put everything in your food processor and blitz until combined. Use a bit of coconut oil in your pan to cook them. Easy.

For the sauce- sauté the onion and garlic, add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms start to soften. Add coconut milk and thyme, bring to a simmer then cook until the mushrooms are completely cooked.

Stack up your hulk-cakes, pour over sauce and get that in your guts! So freaking good!
