Five Minute Protein Pancakes

I am an absolute pancake addict but when it comes to  making pancakes with a generic pancake recipe I am pretty awful. You would be forgiven for mistaking some of my attempts for scrambled eggs- they are really that bad. I’m pretty impatient when it comes to cooking and I always try to flip them too early or I leave them for too long and they get burnt. Basically, it’s normally just easier to leave the pancakes to my boyfriend who is pretty insane when it comes to pancake making. It’s always so hard to persuade him to make them though and they’re not your healthiest breakfast so I decided to come up with a recipe for quick, healthy and tasty pancakes so here it is. If I can manage them, anyone can!

You will need:

1 banana and two eggs (seriously, that’s it). Optional ingredients are protein powder and baking powder.

  • Add a banana to a bowl and mash it into a paste. 
  • Add two eggs to the banana bowl and mix. 
  • If you have protein powder and baking powder you now add a scoop of protein (any flavour) and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Mix these ingredients with your banana and egg mixture.
  • Melt a little oil of your choice (I use coconut) in a pan and pour some of your mixture into the pan. I tend to make relatively small pancakes as they tend to get harder to flip when you make them bigger.
  • Cook on each side for approximately 40 seconds on a medium-high heat.

Once your pancakes are cooked, I recommend topping them with some yummy exciting ingredients. My favourite toppings include granola (trust me on this one), toasted nuts, Pancakegreek yoghurt and fresh fruit.
