Serves 2

Ingredients

- 1 tbsp protein powder (go for a neutral flavour)

- 1 banana mashed or ½ tbsp sugar

- 1 tsp baking powder

- ¼ tsp salt

- 2 large eggs

- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

- 125ml milk of choice

- 1 tbsp coconut oil to cook the pancakes or cook spray

- Fruit of choice to serve (1/3 cup blueberries for example)

Instructions:

  1. Place all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt) in a large bowl.
  2. In a different bowl (or in a blender) combine the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, vanilla extract and banana (if using) until well mixed.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together until well combined.
  4. Place a pan or griddle on to stove with low-medium heat. Lightly grease the pan using coconut oil or cooking spray. Spoon out the pancake mixture into pan according to desired pancake size.
  5. Cook pancakes until the bottom side is brown (3 -4 minutes), then flip the pancake and cook the other side until lightly brown.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Top pancakes with fresh fruit, a dollop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

Energy boosters (optional)

  • Boost fibre content further by replacing half the flour with whole oats
  • Serve with 1 tbsp of runny almond nut butter for more good fat, protein and therefore calories
