Blueberry Banana Protein Pancakes:

Ingredients:

  • 2 large egg whites (about ¼ cup)

  • 1 medium *very ripe* banana, mashed

  • 1 scoop protein powder (30g)

  • ¼ tsp baking soda

  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon

  • ¼ cup blueberries,fresh or frozen

Instructions:


1. Beat the egg whites on high *or whisk vigorously* in a medium-sized bowl for 1 minute.

2. Add remaining ingredients & beat *or whisk* together until smooth & well blended.

3. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Scoop about ¼ cup of the pancake mixture at a time onto the skillet *should make 4 ¼ cup-sized pancakes OR 3 HEAPING ¼ cup-sized pancakes*.

4. Use your hands to add the blueberries to each pancake & poke gently so they are about half way through each pancake. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.

5. Transfer the pancakes onto a plate to serve. Top with desired toppings like extra fruit, chopped walnuts, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, etc. & enjoy!


NOTES:

  • I top mine with this organic, sugar-free maple syrup & it’s SO good!

  • The hubs likes his topped with the same syrup plus melted creamy peanut butter mixed with a dash of melted coconut oil!

  • I use a plant-based protein powder, specifically Vega, which is thicker than whey protein. I haven’t tried this with whey protein powder, but you likely would need to add an extra tbsp of protein powder.
