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 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!
