Protein Pancakes

INGREDIENTS:

Makes 1 serving of 4, four-inch pancakes, or one large pancake

Batter:

  • 1 scoop protein powder – any kind or flavor
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed (optional for an added nutritional boost)
  • 2 Tbsp almond milk
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 banana – mashed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (if your protein powder is plain)

Toppings:

  • 1 Tbsp sliced almonds or almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp low sugar syrup
  • Fresh Fruits

METHOD:

  1. In a small bowl, mash half of a ripe banana and set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine one scoop (or one serving listed on packaging) of protein powder, ground flaxseed, almond milk, egg whites, and cinnamon.
  3. Add the mashed banana and stir all ingredients together until smooth batter is created.
  4. If using a unflavored protein powder, pure vanilla extract can be added into the batter.
  5. Lightly coat a pan with nonstick cooking spray, and place on stove over medium heat.
  6. Pour the batter into 4 inch circles (or one gigantic pancake!).
  7. Flip pancakes once they start to bubble. Top with sliced almonds or almond butter or any type of fruit you like and low sugar syrup.
