I recently found a great protein pancake recipe by IFBB Figure Pro Ava Cowan, and put my own twist on it. Lately, I’ve been enjoying these every Sunday morning. I’ve also been making them for my husband and they rock his world! Since we enjoy them so much, I thought I’d go ahead and share them with you. When you’re eating clean day in and day out, it’s a great way to mix things up and stay on plan!
Banana Protein Pancakes:
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal
- 1/2 or 1 whole scoop of vanilla protein powder (or any flavor you prefer)
- 4 egg whites
- 1/2 banana (this is optional, but I like to add it because it makes the pancakes moist)
- Splenda to taste
- water (if needed for proper consistency)
- coconut oil
Mix all ingredients (except coconut oil) in a bowl. Heat up frying pan on medium-high heat and coat pan lightly with coconut oil. Pour half of the batter into the pan and smooth out with spoon to desired thickness/size. Cook until edges are firm and then flip. When cooked all the way through, remove from heat and top with honey, agave nectar, sugar-free maple syrup, natty peanut butter, fruit spread, or whatever you like!
