Banana Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Banana Blueberry Protein Pancakes recipe


I saw this recipe ages ago and it seems to have certainly become popular with fitness bloggers (and anyone with a New Year's resolution to get into shape).  I wanted to believe that these pancakes were good, but I was totally skeptical... until I made them for myself!  They are really tasty, a little bit sweet and surprisingly have a decent texture.  Plus, these are a great breakfast option for Chris Powell's Body Transformation Challenge, because they have the right servings of carbs and protein to fit the breakfast requirements. And they are so easy to make!



Banana Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Adapted from The Skinny Confidential, Blogilates
Serves 2

1 ripe, mashed banana
2 eggs
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds (you can omit this and the pancakes will still work)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of cinnamon
Handful of blueberries
Vegetable oil
Pure maple syrup, for serving

In a medium bowl, mash bananas to a smooth consistency.  Whisk two eggs into the mashed banana, then add cinnamon, ground flax seed, and vanilla.

In a medium skillet, heat a small amount of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.  Once a droplet of water sizzles in the pan, pour the pancake mixture in the pan, using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.  Allow the pancakes to cook for about 30 seconds, then add a few blueberries to each one.  Cook an additional 30 seconds (or until the batter bubbles) and flip.  Serve with more berries and a little bit of pure maple syrup.

  6. Hmm...interesting!! Do you think you could freeze them? Like make a whole bunch, and then lay out how many you want to eat that morning?
