Quick, Easy and Healthy Banana Protein Pancake Recipe



I know I’m not alone in loving pancakes!


When I was a kid, my dad would make them for us on a Sunday morning and I could not look forward to it more if I wanted to. It felt like such a decadent treat for breakfast. We’d smother them in chocolate sauce, whipped cream, ice cream, maple syrup and sprinkles - my mouth is watering now just thinking about it.


As an adult now, I still love pancakes but have developed a healthier recipe so I can have my (pan)cakes and eat them too.


Remember, life is all about balance so whether you're vegan, gluten-free, paleo or eat everything, this recipe can be tailored to be everything you need!


Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas

  • 1 cup flour (I prefer Wholemeal Spelt Flour)

  • 1 scoop protein powder (flavoured or unflavoured! Choose your own adventure)

  • 1 1/4 cups milk (Almond milk for me)

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder **Optional: add 1 tbsp maple syrup or

  • Add an egg for an extra protein boost and fluffier pancakes

Method:

  1. If you have a high speed blender - throw all the ingredients into the blender and blend for no longer than 30 seconds or until ingredients are mixed, you don’t want too much air in the batter. If you don’t have a blender - mash the bananas and add in .5 cup milk and whisk until smooth, slowly add the rest of the ingredients, stirring as you go

  2. Spray/melt some coconut oil or butter in a pan, pour in batter, heat on one side until it starts to bubble, flip and cook until brown

  3. Serve with your favourite toppings - mine are peanut or almond butter, maple syrup and fruit!

**Hot tip: Throw some frozen berries into a frying pan with a small drizzle of oil and cook until a thick sauce forms for a delicious and healthy berry coulis for your pancakes!


*Other variations:

  • Blend in spinach for a healthy green mix

  • Add a tbsp of cacao for a chocolate hit

  • Add in muesli and a grated apple for bircher pancakes

  • When your pancakes are cooking on the first side, add chocolate chips, blueberries or chopped up protein bars before flipping
