My go to recipe for Protein Pancakes

OK, I will admit, it is not the most attractive thing in the world is it.
But this little buddy just so happens to be my go to snack when I need a 2nd breakfast on the weekend or just a bit of an energy pick me up in the afternoon.

I made this for myself when I got off work early on Friday - I needed something to tie my over until dinner!

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup of oats (you can have it right out of the box, or blend to refine prefered)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1t cinnamon 
  • 2T of milk (Soy, nut, whole etc)
  • 1t milled ground flaxseeds
  • 1 ripe pre-mashed banana
Mix all but the banana in a bowl and make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined.  Then add the banana and check the consistency.  You might want to add a little more milk if desired.  Don't be afraid that this mix does not look like "normal" pancake mix.  It shouldn't!

 Spoon the mixture into a frying pan and flip when ready.

I like to top my pancakes with peanut butter and agave nectar but you can top with whatever you like.  Cinnamon, lemon juice, fruit and low calorie sweetener etc.  Whatever your heart desires!

There are many many modifications that can be done to this recipe.  You don't have to use banana if you don't want to - cottage cheese works well too.

I originally came across this recipe from the lovely ladies over at Tone It Up.  Cool video and an awesome recipe to make your own :)

  1. I was always reluctant about cutting pancakes completely out of my meals, but now I know how to ease them back in! Thanks for the lovely post :) (can't live without the peanut butter lol!)
