I just LOVE pancakes. I think pancake day growing up was always one of my favourite days as I have such lovely memories making them with my family. Instead of your usual pancake mixture, why not try a healthier option this pancake day? I’ve been making these protein pancakes for a while now, and I think after a few attempts the recipe is just right. I love finishing a long workout at the weekend and treating myself with these afterwards.
The best thing is, they are REFINED SUGAR FREE, GLUTEN FREE & GRAIN FREE!! Yes, you heard me right, and they taste just as good as ordinary pancakes.. maybe even better! These are so simple to make and taste delicious – you’ll have a hard time not wanting to make them every day from now on!
1 x large mashed banana
2 egg whites
2 scoops vanilla Protein World powder (I use Slender Blend which is high protein & low calorie)
Splash of almond milk
Dash of cinnamon
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Coconut oil (for cooking)
If you have a blender, literally throw all ingredients in (apart from the coconut oil) and blend until smooth and creamy. Alternatively, whisk the egg whites with a hand whisk until it’s frothy and increased in size slightly, then add all the other ingredients making sure to mix well. It may look a little lumpy without the blender but this doesn’t affect the taste I promise! Use a little coconut oil in the frying pan and cook a few minutes on each side under a medium heat. This mixture makes around 8 small sized pancakes. I usually top mine with berries, pecans, and a drizzling of almond butter! It’s that easy!
