(recipe makes 12 blocks)


2 bananas (the older, the better)
1 c oats(gluten free, rolled)
6 eggs
2 scoops protein pwd(6 protein blocks - 42g) -I used chocolate
7 Tbsp chia seed/coconut mix (see link below)**
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking soda

12 total blocks which I made into six 2-block snacks -- 2 blocks each
3.8oz = 2 blocks


Blended the bananas, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla
Add the oats and pulse
 a bit just to chop the oats

Add in the chia mix, protein powder and baking soda and blend just until mixed
Cook in a skillet that has been greased with coconut oil

I ended up with about 16 pancakes and then weighed them out and found that 1.9oz was 1/12 the recipe so 3.8oz is 2 blocks which is what I was looking to create for a mid-afternoon snack on my way from work to my afternoon session. Goal was to create something that was easily digestible and easy to eat on the go and so far this looks like a winning and delicious combination ;)

This is the link for the Chia mix Spectrum Essentials Chia and Flax Seed Decadent Blend
You can also get the chia mix at whole foods which is where I discovered it.

***You could also substitute coconut butter or any nut butter (usually about 2 Tbsp = 18g fat (12 blocks) for these options) for the chia mix.***

  1. I've been looking for a paleo (ish) zone website and I'm glad I found one! Do you have any other recipe websites that are geared more toward paleo zone with blocks in their recipes? Thanks!
