Perking Up the Pancake

For the mornings you want a sweet treat that won’t weigh you down, try my protein pancakes! I have lightened up the traditional breakfast favorite, giving you a guilt-free and satisfying start to your day. photo-48

These little cakes are packed with protein, low in carbs & flourless- words I would never consider fit for describing a pancake. But with the help of the oats and baking powder, these pancakes have the traditional fluffy, cake-like texture that we all love so much.

The ripe banana adds natural sweetness that will satisfy your sweet tooth without using  any empty added sugars. But if the cakes are not sweet enough, feel free to add a natural substitute, such as Agave nectar or Stevia.

Spice things up by adding a dash of cinnamon or stir in fresh blueberries for a burst of flavor!

Protein Pancakes

1 Serving

1/3 cup Oats

1/3 cup Egg Whites (or 2 whole eggs)

1/2 Very Ripe Banana

1 tsp Baking Powder

2 tbs Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 tsp Cinnamon

Mash the banana and combine with the other ingredients using a whisk, or blend together in Magic Bullet. Add additional egg whites if the batter does not have a thick consistency. Spray a nonstick cooking pan and heat to medium heat. Pour half of the batter onto the pan, when the pancake begins to bubble, flip and continue to cook on the other side. Repeat with the remainder of the batter. Top with fresh berries, Greek yogurt, or no sugar added maple syrup!
