GU CAKES FROM THE ATHLETE’S KITCHEN

Welcome to the first installment of Watt’s Cookin’ by the Rad Scientist

We think our Hydration, Energy, & Recovery products are great… but that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to spice them up every once-in-a-while!  Did someone say pancakes?

Here’s how you can make delicious pancakes using our Vanilla Cream or Chocolate Smoothie Recovery Drink Mix – a perfect post long-run or long-ride indulgence.


Ingredients:

  • 2/3 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Recovery Drink Mix (Chocolate Smoothie or Vanilla Cream)
  • 2 TBSP Sugar
  • 2 TSP Baking Powder
  • ½ TSP Salt
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2 TBSP Vegetable Oil (or Butter)
  • 1 Egg

    Step 1: Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl

    Step 2: Whisk wet ingredients in a different bowl

    Step 3: Whisk wet ingredients with dry ingredients

    Step 4: Grease up the griddle (over low to medium heat)

    Step 5: Scoop onto the griddle and flip when the bubbles burst… then let the other side get to a golden brown

    Step 6: Top them with…

     

     

    Avocado and Olive Oil

     

     

    Maple Syrup
