Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes
This is a classic that NEVER gets old! :)
I happened to have some ripe bananas at hand and I thought I’d whip up a batch that I could eat over the next couple of days. Just reheat them in the morning for a quick breakfast, or take them with you to work and microwave them for a minute for a delicious lunch.
If you ask me, pancakes are great any time of day! Enjoy! ;)
Ingredients (makes 6-8 pancakes)
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1 cup oat flour (gluten-free)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/6 tsp. salt
2 scoops whey protein powder (I used Vanilla flavor)
2 tsp. stevia or sukrin gold
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (optional)
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1 whole egg
1/2 cup milk (lactose-free or any you prefer)
1 tps. vanilla extract
1 tbs. oil (coconut, macadamia nut, any you prefer)
Optional add-ins: chopped walnuts.
Possible substitutes: If you don’t have protein powder at hand, then leave it out and adjust the 2 missing scoops by adding 1/2 cup oat flour.
Make your flax seed meal by grinding flax seeds in a blender till powdery, then put in medium bowl.
Add all dry ingredients to medium bowl and mix well.
In small bowl mix all wet ingredients, then fold into medium bowl and mix till batter is smooth.
Mix in any add-ins here.
Heat non-stick pan on medium heat, you don’t want it to be too hot. Use cooking spray if you think your pan might have tendency to stick.
Give each side approximately 1 minute and remove from heat.
Top with organic maple syrup and walnuts
