Today after my morning workout I needed some protein...stat. I also noticed that my bananas were getting ripe. So I thought...protein pancakes it is! So I googled recipes online and found this one from Body Building. I made some modifications since I only had chocolate protein powder and wanted to use my ripe bananas. It is rather simple...cleat eating at its finest!
Banana-Chocolate Protein Pancakes
- 1/4 cup of raw oats
- 1/4 low-fat cottage cheese
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1 smashed banana
- Blend all ingredients until a batter forms. I used chocolate protein powder but I believe the recipe says to use vanilla.
- Pour over a hot griddle. Flip when the edges start browning.
- Decorate with fresh fruits. I opted not to use any maple syrup to watch my calorie intake.
It was rather simple to make these pancakes. Wish I could say that I was 100% sold on them. Not sure if it was the different texture or the chocolate protein. Either way I am going to continue to search for new protein pancakes. The good thing about these pancakes are that they are healthy and low in calories.
