PROTEIN PANCAKES

There's honestly never a time in which I don't stop thinking about food. Simple food, that is.

Simple is always better. Especially when I’m incredibly lazy on the weekend. Seriously lazy. I mean, I still always move my body and am out running errands, but then, I tend to not want to do anything else. So my cooking is extremely simple on the weekends. I make lots of eggs, and sometimes I even make these delicious protein pancakes...

 

PROTEIN PANCAKES

Serving: Makes about 6 pancakes

Ingredients

2 eggs (substitute with vegan egg if you like)
2 bananas
2 scoops protein powder of choice (about 16g grams)
2 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
Optional: Vanilla extract
Optional: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Optional: Organic strawberries


Instructions

  1. Mash banana in a medium mixing bowl. *You can also blend the banana in a high-speed blender to make these extra fluffy.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the medium mixing bowl and whisk until no lumps remain. Add additional add-ins of choice.
  3. Heat butter or avocado oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter melts, turn down heat to low and pour in batter. Cover and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip, and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
  4. Serve warm with maple syrup, or additional toppings of choice!
