Pancake Recipe

DSC_0001

These pancakes are the badgers nadgers, the bee’s knees, the dogs… You know what I mean! They are amazing. I love pancake recipes that contain bananas, as they add a fluffy texture and mean that the pancakes retain moisture when you add in more drying ingredients like protein powder!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large mashed banana
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 heaping scoop of banana protein powder
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tbsp milk (I recommend unsweetened almond milk)

Mash the banana and whisk it with the eggs. Then slowly add in the protein powder, whisking as you go to ensure there are no clumps. Then stir in the chocolate chips and add between 1-2 tablespoons of milk until a perfect pancake consistency is reached. Heat up some oil in a pan to a medium temperature (I recommend coconut oil) and pour in your pancake mixture. Flip when bubbles appear on the surface. Simple.
