What is it about pancakes? They can be a treat, they can be a weekend breakfast favourite, and they are almost always on the list of comfort food.
If you like or love pancakes but have been avoiding them because you are working on eating healthy and clean, I have some great news for you – we’ve got “healthy” pancakes for you. These are good for you and guilt free, plus we’ve figured out a way to add in a serving of protein powder to the batch. Make these and enjoy.
If you are one of my online coaching clients, you likely already have this recipe! It has been my go-to for many, many years, and I can eat it hot, cold, plain or drizzled with sugar-free syrup – it’s simply so satisfying!
2/3 cup egg whites
1 serving protein powder of choice
1/2 cup oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ to 1 banana ripe, sliced
1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen (optional)
Coconut oil cooking spray
1-2 tablespoons sugar-free syrup (optional)
- Mix up the first 5 ingredients and cook mixture over medium heat in a non-stick pay (lightly sprayed). I prefer to use a small pan and cook each pancake individually so they take nice shape.
- When bubbles form, spread banana slices and blueberries evenly into it and cook another minute before flipping once.
- Cook another 5ish minutes and you’re done! The recipe may make a few pancakes, depending upon the size of your pan. Enjoy!
Pro Tip: I have vegan and no-carb protein pancake versions available on my website, for those eating keto or watching their sugar intake. These other variations are also optimal as nighttime snacks, or as a great travel meal.
