I am SO excited to share this recipe on the blog! This was my third attempt at protein pancakes (you can see my first attempt in this blog postand trust me when I say… there is no better feeling in the kitchen when you perfect a recipe. I made it another 2 times after (just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke) and now I think it’s ready for the blog :)

This made a PERFECT breakfast – both freshly prepared or if you freeze them and pop them in the toaster.

Note that you will need a blender of some sort. This is the one I use (affiliate link.)

For the pancakes, you will need (makes 6-8 small pancakes):

P3010822 1 ripe banana / half scoop vanilla protein powder / half cup oats (overflow the cup) / 2 large eggs

Make your batter (basically just add the ingredients one by one in your blender):

bana And now you’ve got your batter! Easy, right?

P3010839 Make sure your pan is at medium-high and start cookin’ your pancakes! Note that these pancakes should be smaller than your average diner pancakes. You can add coconut oil or spray a non-stick oil if you’d like. Like regular pancakes, flip them over when the bubbles start to form! These 2 are a little burnt because I took too long to flip them – was busy taking pictures.

For the almond chocolate protein sauce:

P3010822-2

vanilla protein powder / chocolate almond milk / almond butter (I’m not giving you measurements because it really depends on how nutty or chocolatey you want your sauce to be.)

P3010843

 For me, I used 2 and a half teaspoons of almond butter in a shallow bowl and then I poured the chocolate almond milk to cover about half of it. Then you want to microwave it for a minute and a half and when it comes out, it will be VERY hot so be careful. You want to mix this until smooth – I used a fork – it will feel like it’s not “melting” together at first, but if you keep at it, you will get it right. Then, add your protein powder to thicken it – that way it’s more “saucy”.

f-mm

Pour your sauce over the pancakes + cut up the rest of your banana! I know you will LOVE them – tastes just like banana Nutella pancakes!

It fell apart when I tried to eat it because I stacked them too high! Note that these are GREAT to freeze – just pop them in the toaster to warm them up in the morning ! Let me know if you make this recipe and what you think :)

VARIATIONS!

Edit: You can definitely enjoy these pancakes without the chocolate sauce! Tip: for fluffier pancakes, just make sure you blend your egg whites + egg yolks for a longer time!

How To Make it Like a Crepe cake: Omit the protein powder in your mixture + add the whole banana. For the sauce, use the same method listed above with milk + almond butter + protein powder and layer it in between each pancake. Make your sauce a little more runny than solid. Serve warm!
