What's on my plate? -Sweet Egg Omelet

I know what you're thinking.  Eggs aren't supposed to be sweet.  Yea, yea I know it sounds pretty weird... But I promise this recipe will make you fall in love with sweet omelets for breakfast!  Don't knock it till' you try it.

My good friend Rob Saeva (thanks Rob!), who happens to be strong as hell AND a nutrition genius, gave me this idea a few weeks ago and I have been making it whenever I'm craving something sweet.  It resembles a regular pancake, only without the added carbs as the base.  Its super easy to put together and is made just like a normal breakfast omelet.  

Ingredients:

  • 2 Wegmans Organic Eggs
  • 46g Liquid Egg Whites (1 serving)
  • 1/2 scoop (16g) PEScience Snickerdoodle Protein
  • 20g Wegmans Organic Peanut Butter
  • 60g Banana
  • 10g Organic Maple Syrup

 

Directions:

  1. Whisk the eggs and egg whites together.  Add the protein and continue whisking until the protein isn't clumped together anymore.
  2. Cook in a small pan for about 3 minutes on medium heat.  Then flip it to the other side to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. After it's finished cooking, smear on the peanut butter while its hot so the peanut butter melts a little, then slice up the banana.
  4. Pour the maple syrup on top and enjoy!

Look how delicious that looks! I've always been skeptical of mixing whey with eggs, but this recipe turned out perfect.  You can't even tell that it has whey in it.  It just tastes like a sweet, fluffy pancake with PB and bananas.  The snickerdoodle protein was an awesome addition to this recipe, but you could also use vanilla protein and I'm sure it would turn out great.

I ate mine like an open faced omelet because it looked cool ha.   But it would be equally as good if you folded it and ate it that way too. The macros can be tweaked as needed: if you don't have the extra fats for that much peanut butter you could easily substitute PB2 dehydrated peanut butter!  Or even eliminate a full egg and substitute an egg white.  I really like this recipe with the full eggs, however.

Also, if you're not sure what PB2 is, you must get some immediately.  It's dehydrated peanut butter powder that's pressed of all the extra fats and oils to reduce the fat content.  Then all you do is add a couple dashes of water, stir it up, and it turns into a normal peanut butter texture.  Not to mention that it tastes almost exactly the same!  But only with 1.5g of fat!!  You can get some at Wegmans, but here is a link to buy it through amazon:

Feel free to add any additional toppings that you like as well!  I would do dark chocolate chips or something next time to add a little sweetness :)  But you could also do strawberries or some nuts as well to keep it on the healthier side!

Try it out and let us know what you think!

Live well, be well.
