So I’ve kind of been craving protein pancakes constantly over the past two days. I think it has something to do with my pancakes no longer being scrambles… LOL! I made one yesterday, just the one from the Tone It Up website, but today, I wanted to try something new.
I decided to try a Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Protein Pancake! I’ve never made this before…. It’s not really a recipe in the Fat Burning System, but I kind of combined two of the recipes and added a little bit here and there.
Here’s the ingredients I used:
Chocolate whey protein, egg whites, crunchy organic peanut butter, Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, non-fat plain Greek yogurt, and ground flaxseed. I would have preferred Chocolate Almond milk, but I ran out!
And look at this sticker on the banana! Isn’t that so funny?! Haha :)
To start off, I mixed:
1/4 cup egg whites
1 scoop Chocolate whey protein powder
3 tablespoons Vanilla Almond Breeze
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 a tablespoon crunch organic peanut butter
Then, I mashed up half a banana and added it into the mixture. I cut up the other half of the banana like so:
And mixed it into the pancake batter, careful not to mash it because I wanted the little chunks! I used medium heat and sprayed a little olive oil spray on my pan. I actually made two pancakes using a smaller pan instead of one bigger one…. My first one wasn’t as pretty but I took a picture of my second one!
Look how well that turned out! Haha :) I’ve started getting the hang of this… They all used to turn into scrambles! I think I’m going to do a blog post on a few tips & tricks in making the perfect protein pancake… and maybe a video?! Hehe :)
I felt like the pancake lacked a little taste…. So I added a little bit more of the crunchy peanut butter. Not a whole lot, but just a bit to give it a little more flavour. I’m going to try to tweak the recipe here and there to add more flavour, but I have to say, it was pretty good!
And of course, I enjoyed it with a little bit maple syrup. Ahhhh! Such a satisfying and perfect breakfast. So delicious!
If I come up with a perfected recipe, I will definitely let you all know! For now, what’s your favourite protein pancake?! Have you tried making your own recipe up? :)
