Protein Pancakes - Dairy and Gluten free


This pic doesn’t do these pancakes justice.  They’re totally dairy and gluten free but beyond satisfying if you are missing a sweet treat breakfast.  I’ve seen a ton of posts about making 2 ingredient pancakes with mashed banana and egg.  I set out to make this, but got carried away and turned mine into a 5 ingredient, fiber and protein filled version.

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon flax meal

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used vegan SunWarrior Classic Vanilla)

  • 5 shakes of cinnamon

  • (1 teaspoon coconut oil for cooking)

Mash the banana with a fork until there are no chunks left.  Mix in egg.  Add flax and protein, mix well.  Heat pan and add coconut oil.  Canola oil would be fine too, however I think the coconut oil takes the flavor next level.  Small pancakes (4 inch diameters) cook best.  2-3 minutes each side. This recipe yielded about 8 little guys, but don’t think you have to share.

I used the same pan to melt almond butter to drizzle on top instead of maple syrup.  I added pomegranate, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries straight from this morning’s farmers market. Enjoy!
