    some whey protein have soy in it and i am allergic to soy can i replace it with something else

  • Maddi

    I don’t have protein powder and I didn’t plan on putting it in my pancake yet. Is there something else I can replace it with for now??

  • Ariana

    Hi,cassy always uses egg whites in her recipes, but I like using the whole egg. What is the equivalent to two egg whites, one whole egg?

  • Anisa

    It sort of confuses me when Americans say half a cup or a cup for e.g. In london we work with grams and it’s much more simple. What cup am i supposed to use? plastic,mug,glass etc?

    • Kate

      approx. 250 grams per cup

  • Sarah

    would skipping the protein powder affect the taste?

    • Ali

      Ummm yes since that is actually used in place of flour. You would only have liquid goop.

  • Bri

    Great recipes, but I liked it better when you did recipes without protein powder. Many of us do not want to invest money into that…or maybe you can show the alternative to protein powder.

    • Mehwish

      I totally agree Bri!!

    • Kimberly

      Protein powder is worth the money

  • Vicki

    OMG I’m dying! Those pancakes look SO good. I can’t wait to make them this weekend!!! So happy CCE is back! :)

  • yaheleda

    what kind of protein shakes should you be looking for? like what should the calories, fat, carbs ect be around?

  • Kathy

    Hey Cassey!
    my boyfriend isn’t really happy with his body right now. He is 6’3” ft tall and weighs about 235lb. He has no energy or time for sport (I tried to do your videos with him but he thinks that’s girl stuff and not manly.) because he works a lot and has appointments till 9 p.m.. When he comes home he usually doesn’t do much. Just finding something to eat when I’m not there to cook (usually it’s toast) and plays a lot on the computer before going to bed (he needs such things to relax). I understand that he can’t really jump around doing workout at home at night cause he got neighbours with a little child. So I want to know what I can give him for dinner or prepare the day before so that he doesn’t have to starve. he doesn’t eat breakfast and hardly ever lunch because of lack of time. so he needs to eat something at night.
    What can I prepare or what could i give him that he can eat during lunch break or in-between two appointments?
    thanks for an answer!

      Hi Kathy,
      Check out ProBars. They’re natural meal-replacement bars that he can eat whenever. Also Svelte meal replacement shakes are an option. Both can be found on Vitacost.com

      You can also try making some of the recipes on here in larger quantities (double or triple the amounts to make alot at once) and freeze the leftovers. That way when you’re not around, he can at least heat something up that’s ready-made. I do this for myself and my family and it works out great. Saves me some time, too, so I’m not cooking 24/7! :)

  • Amanda

    Cassey! You should definitely do a video or blog post about staying fit and healthy when your in college! Like, how to chose the right food in the cafeteria, and balancing workouts with school work!

  • Honor

    Hi Cassey, these recipes look awesome and can’t wait to try but I’m actually commenting cause I’m dying over your outfit! So adorable x

  • Claudia

    This recipe looks awesome, but I have I problem :-( I’m allergic to oats, any ideas what can I substitute the oats with? It makes eating clean difficult :-(

    • Elana

      You can use another type of flour, like brown rice or chickpea I would think :)

      • Claudia

        Thank you, i will definitely try that.

  • This looks so good! I am definitely trying this out tomorrow morning! Thanks Cassie!

  • I’d love to see some new breakfast recipes!
    You’re banana egg pancakes are insanely good!! <3

  • I am going to add this one to my protein recipes! Love pancakes! thanks

  • Elana

    This seems like more of a strawberries and cream protein shake. What can I do to enhance the cake flavor? Nutmeg, or any other ideas? Also, I don’t eat dairy. Should I try to find some vegan Greek yogurt? Or use soy, or any other suggestions? I love the smoothie recipes; it helps so much to know the proportions so thank you!!! :)

    • Jessica

      You could add vanilla! That might increase the cake flavour.

      • Elana

        Yummy! Thank you! :)

  • I love pancakes… now I love it even more !
    Thank you !

  • I’m seriously dying to try those pancakes!! They look so good!

  • I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a great protein pancake recipe and I think I’ve finally found it! I can’t wait to try these out. :)

  • Do you think you can do a low carb dairy free version of ice cream?
