Whole Wheat Banana (Protein) Pancakes

By: Pearl Maalouf BS, FMSC, CPT, CF-L1
I’ve been on a pancake kick lately and making them several times a week! I have a much simpler recipe for myself that I use on a daily basis, but if Robert decides to join me this is my “go-to” recipe.

INGREDIENTS
1 ½  cups whole-wheat flour
½ cup protein powder (I use ON 100% Gold Standard Whey Chocolate)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
dash of cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¾ cups water (or almond milk)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 ripe bananas, mashed
PAM coconut oil spray

INSTRUCTIONS
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon).
Add in the wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla extract, water/milk, and coconut oil). Mix together thoroughly.
Add in the mashed bananas into the batter and mix.
Heat a griddle or sauté pan over medium heat. I use PAM coconut oil spray for cooking the pancakes.
When the pancakes have begun to turn brown on the bottom, flip them over to cook the other side. Once flipped they don’t need too much time cooking, as when you stack the pancakes up on the serving plate they will continue to cook.
Serve with honey, maple syrup, or even peanut butter! You could even eat them on their own- they are super moist and delicious!
