After reading a blog post this morning about homemade protein pancake recipes, I wanted to make it on my own with my own ingredients.
I made my variation of peanut butter banana pancakes with PB2 powdered peanut butter and a lot of other good, healthy ingredients to make them fluffy and full of flavor!
These protein pancakes pack a ton of protein. I’d estimate about 30 grams of protein per serving. This makes for a delicious, filling, and decadent weekend breakfast!
I may be a little pancake obsessed, but they are really that good. They’re perfectly fluffy, nutty, and full of flavor. Ok, so here’s the recipe:
Nutty Protein Banana Pancakes (for two people)
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 scoop PlantFusion vanilla protein powder (optional)
- 6 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2/3 cup mashed bananas
- 1/4 cup of almonds
- 2 egg whites
- 4 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1. In a small bowl, mix together maple syrup, 1 tbsp PB2, 1 tbsp almond milk for the syrup.
2. In a food processor or Nutribullet, grind the oats and almonds.
3. In a medium bowl, combine oats and almonds, protein powder, PB2, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix in the mashed bananas, egg whites and almond milk.
4. Heat a large skillet and spray with non-stick cooking spray or melt butter on the skillet. Spoon pancake mixture onto the pan.
5. Cook until desired, then flip to cook through.
6. Serve pancakes with maple peanut sauce, bananas and extra cinnamon on top!
