Soooooo I’ve never made protein pancakes before. Not sure why. Last week I was making those oatmeal pancakes. They’re delish, but I get bored easy so I wanted to finally try out protein pancakes. I think I was resisting for so long because I think of myself of somewhat of a pancake connoisseur. I was raised on pancakes. My middle name is pancake.
Okay so I was browsing around at protein pancake recipes and I decided that I was going to make my own. You know, because I think I know everything. (Okay fine I don’t know everything in the world but I do know everything about pancakes, there, better?)
I know the point of protein pancakes are that they’re supposed to be low carb or no carb. But I needed just a little more oomph than what I was seeing in most recipes. So I added just a teensy bit of rolled oats.
Protein Pancake Recipe
- 1 egg
- 1 heaping tablespoon of pumpkin puree
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 scoop of whey protein powder (I use Magnum Quattro)
- 1/4 cup of rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon ground flax
Start by mixing the banana, egg, and pumpkin and then add the dry ingredients. Cook in a pan at just under medium heat. Like all pancakes you want to wait until the side is bubbling just a bit before you flip it. It took about 3 1/2 minutes per side for me. You can top with fruit or peanut butter or even maple syrup but I ate mine plain with oranges on the side.
Just call me Morgan Pancake Shuker.
On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love pancakes? Or do you fancy yourself more of a waffle or crepe person?
