Make these easy protein pancakes THREE different ways!


Scale

Ingredients

For the extra light protein pancakes:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup of egg whites
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (every container is different so aim for about 2 tablespoons if you’re unsure)
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
  • optional: sprinkle of cinnamon

For the Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (every container is different so aim for about 2 tablespoons if you’re unsure)

For the Chocolate Protein Pancakes

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of milk (any kind works)
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (every container is different so aim for about 2 tablespoons if you’re unsure)
  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

Instructions

  1. For all 3 of the pancakes: blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. The oatmeal pancakes take a bit longer so the oats can get fully blended.
  2. Heat a griddle to 300 degrees F and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter on the griddle and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. The key with these pancakes is to cook them on a lower heat than traditional pancakes and for a longer period of time than traditional. If using a skillet, you want the heat on medium low.
  4. Top with your favorite pancake toppings and ENJOY!!

Notes

The extra light recipe makes just 2 medium pancakes while the oatmeal recipes make 4 medium pancakes each.
