Description

When it comes to weekend comfort food it’s hard to beat a big stack of fluffy pancakes – these protein pancakes get a nutritional boost from banana, whole wheat flour and protein powder!


Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup vanilla flavored protein powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Add milk and whisk together until smooth.  Add egg and egg whites and whisk again.
  2. Add the flour, protein powder, baking soda, vanilla and salt.  Whisk again until all ingredients are incorporated.  Gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. Spray a non-stick pan with coconut oil or other cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat.  Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the heated pan.  Repeat until the pan is full (about 3 pancakes fit into a 10″ pan). Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the edges begin to just slightly brown.  Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown.
  4. Remove pancakes from the pan and keep warm.  Repeat until all the batter has been used up.  Serve with maple syrup and blueberries or fruit topping of your choice.
