5min Protein Pancakes

28 Mar


These are like the coolest pancakes ever. They kind of go against everything I thought a pancake was because they are healthy and so super quick to make instead of unhealthy and only suitable to make on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They are jam packed with protein and amazingly kind of taste like cake! I got this recipe from a new blog I have found called moderngirlnutrition.com. It is a blog basically all about eating green and healthy which is what I’m (trying to be) all about at the moment and this fabulous recipe fits in perfectly with that. I recommend everyone to visit it, I hope you’ll be as enthralled by it as I am.


5min Protein Pancakes (Serves 1)

1 banana

1/3 cup oat flour (If you don’t have oat flour just whizz the oats in a food processor until fine)

2tbsp protein powder/1tbsp cocoa powder

1 egg

1/2tsp baking powder

olive oil

  • Mash, whisk or stir all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • In a small pan, heat enough oil to just cover the surface over a medium/high heat.
  • Dollop the mixture onto the pan to make 2 pancakes and cook for 90sec on each side until cooked through.
  • Serve hot off the pan with your chosen toppings. I put crunchy peanut butter, natural yogurt and cacao nibs on mine but feel free to experiment.
