Banana protein pancake recipe
I have a sweet tooth, well actually, I also have a savoury tooth. I generally just love food! But I also love being healthy and fuelling my body well for a healthy and active life.
I like to ‘treat’ myself from time to time, but treats don’t have to be unhealthy. Below is a great pancake recipe I made this week. Super delicious, packed full of protein and good for you!
- 1 over-ripe banana
- 3/4 cup of carton egg whites
- 1tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 cup berries (defrosted or fresh)
- 1 tbsp of low-fat greek yoghurt
- 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal
- 1tbsp of honey
- Place a frypan on to a hot stove top and grease lightly with canola oil.
- Whisk banana, egg whites and cinnamon together using a whisk or a bullet machine (such as a ‘magic bullet’).
- Pour small amount of mixture in to pan to make one pancake and allow to cook for 1 minute. Flip and cook on the other side. Repeat.
- While the pancakes are cooking, defrost frozen berries in the microwave for approximately one minute.
- Place pancakes on to a plate, top with frozen berries, yoghurt, flaxseed meal and drizzle with honey.
You can also make just one large pancake with the mixture. Give it a go for a healthy ‘treat’ breakfast this weekend!
