Recipe: Protein Pancakes

Recipe: Protein Pancakes

So every now and then you want a “treat” but will feel better about it if it is relatively on the healthy side. Showstopper: the protein pancake.

Serves 2 people.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 scoops of any flavour protein powder (I used the double chocolate, which is why the pancakes are that dark colour)
  • Chocolate chips (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. Whisk the four eggs in a bowl with a fork.
  2. Mash up the bananas in a separate bowl with a spoon (my picture looks like scrambled eggs).
  3. Add the whisked eggs, mashed bananas, baking soda and
    protein powder in a bowl.
  4. Add all of these to a blender and blend until the combined ingredients are a smooth consistency.
  5. Heat a pan on medium heat. (REMEMBER! The first one is usually a flop!
  6. Using a large spoon, add a bit of the mixture to make a round pancake in the middle of the pan (the bubbles forming is a good thing). You can add the chocolate chips on the top now, if you wish.
  7. Using a spatula, flip over the pancake and cook the other side.
  8. Serve. (I cheated a bit with the Nutella) : )
