Recipe: Protein Pancakes

Eating clean can be pretty boring. I got a bit sick of raspberries and greek yogurt for breakfast especially when anything else would mean I’d have to get up ridiculously early to eat before work. I am not a morning person and anything I can prep the night before a work day is a big positive for me. The lovely Sal published a recipe for protein pancakes on her blog and I thought I’d try my hand at some. I tinkered about with the ingredients and different variations before coming up with these…

Ingredients – Makes 2 servings

1 large egg
2 large egg whites
28g scoop of vanilla protein (I use MyProtein Elle True Diet)
1 small banana
1 teaspoon olive oil


Pop all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Meanwhile heat a none stick frying pan with a little buy generic cymbalta online olive oil. Using a dessert spoon pour 2 spoonfuls of the batter into the centre of the pan and cook until little bubbles form on the surface.

Use a slotted spoon to turn and cook for a few minutes on the other side until golden brown.

I get around 8 small pancakes out of this batter mix and find it works best when the banana isn’t too ripe. I find when they have just changed colour to yellow from green they are the perfect consistency for this recipe.

I love them warm with either bacon or sausages on a Sunday morning or cold with Total Greek yogurt and raspberries. What’s more, they keep until the next day so I can grab and go before work. Perfect!

Do you make protein pancakes? What do you enjoy them with?

    Using protien powder instead of wheat flower is a fantastic idea.
