Literally everyone who has a health food blog has a recipe for protein pancakes. Better late than never, here we are. 🙂
Ok so I experimented with a few different ways to make these bad boys and found that this recipe is not only the easiest but tastes the best. It serves one, so you don’t need to stress over portion size, but can easily be doubled or tripled. I will say, as good as these do taste, they are designed to be able to eat pancakes for breakfast and not feel like you’re cheating. I mean think about it, you’re eating one banana, one egg, about 20 grams of plant based protein, and cinnamon. Maple syrup is a natural sweetener (totes fine), but they don’t even need the extra sweetness. They aren’t as light and fully as the pancakes from like, IHop, but then you’re eating pancakes from IHop…
Feel free to jazz these up with blueberries, nuts, or extra spices. I even like to bring these as a snack and eat them cold. And if you make them don’t forget to tag us on Instagram or DM us a pic! We love seeing recreations of our recipes. 🙂
- 1 banana
- 1 egg (or flax egg)
- 1 1/2 scoops of plain or vanilla protein (I use Vega or Naked Nutrition)
- 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- Add the banana to a blender and blend on low until broken down (not completely smooth).
- Add the egg, protein powder, and cinnamon and blend on low until smooth.
- Heat a frying pan over medium-low.
- Spray the pan with olive oil or coconut oil spray, and then add 1/4 cup of the batter.
- When the pancake starts to bubble (about 30 seconds) flip over.
- Repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Top with pure maple syrup if desired.
- Depending on the size of your banana and protein scooper, this will make 4-5 pancakes.
