HFHP stands for high fiber high protein, a main requirement for breakfasts. All of my optimal health breakfasts are high fiber and high protein, with a moderate amount of healthy fat.

I taught a great cooking class last Saturday, for which I made HFHP type pancakes for days and days. Last week I was very inspired to make sweet tasting apple and pear based pancakes, and this week I am all about cheese and olive based pancakes.

This easy and yummy pancake is more like a fine and moist piece of high fiber bread, which is why it's suitable for those mornings, when you feel like something substantial and yummy but minus the carbs that a piece of bread offers.

HFHP Cheesy Pancake

For the pancake:

2 free range eggs
1 tbsp flax meal
1 tbsp oat bran
1 tbsp wheat bran

For the filling:

2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp olive pate

Mix all pancake ingredients with a whisk to get a smooth texture. Heat a pan on medium heat and spray with cooking spray or melt 1/2 tbsp ghee (clarified butter). Add the mixture and spread, cooking evenly until golden brown on both sides. Add the cream cheese and olive pate and fold in two. Cook for 30 seconds on each side to melt the filling.

Serve with a few pieces of sour fruit, both green apples and grapefruits work great.
