Protein Pancakes


I usually make everyone breakfast in the morning, which means I  get to choose the menu.  Knowing my sons like to start their day with something healthy, I decided to make a twist to a breakfast favorite and created Protein Pancakes. I mixed bananas, eggs, and protein powder to make the cakes and then topped them with a peanutty sauce thanks to a mixture of peanut powder and water. The boys loved them and thought it was so fun that I used their protein powder and peanut butter powder as two of the ingredients.  The pancakes were so simple to prepare, healthy, and especially yummy with the sauce and a few extra slices of bananas to finish. 


Ingredients for Protein Pancakes:

serves 1-2


2 ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/4 cup protein powder

PB2 - Powdered Peanut Butter

Serve with sliced bananas and peanut butter sauce


Time-Saving Tip: Have all of the ingredients room temperature.


Let's see what we need.

We're ready to cook.



Add the bananas, protein powder, and eggs to a food processor. Blend until almost smooth.


Coat a non-stick pan with cooking spray. Pour some batter into the pan, making equal-sized pancakes. These pancakes are pretty thin, so it's best to use roughly 1/4 cup measure. Flip over once they start to bubble and cook until the bottom is golden.

If serving with PB2, combine some of the powder with water until desired consistency.


They're ready! Protein Pancakes take minutes to prepare and are delicious. I love how they are such a healthy way to start the day, and they're so light. So if you have some protein powder in your pantry, give these a try, and I bet you will love them.


Enjoy!
