Who doesn’t love a pancake? With a healthifying makeover, you can have these any day of the week rather than saving them for an indulgent Sunday brunch. When you are wiped out at the end of the day, you can even whip these up for dinner and not feel the slightest bit guilty about it…
6 tablespoons plain flour
1 scoop of protein powder of choice
1⁄2 tablespoon xylitol or stevia, or other granulated sweetener
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 small banana, peeled
1 tablespoon non-dairy milk of choice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄2 teaspoon coconut oil
berries of choice and maple syrup, or dark/bittersweet chocolate chips, to serve
In a bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, sweetener, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, mash the banana until no lumps remain, then add the milk and vanilla extract.
Mix the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients until combined.
Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan/skillet over a medium heat so that it coats the bottom of the pan. Spoon a quarter of the pancake batter at a time into the pan, then flip the pancake over when you see it start to bubble. Cook until golden underneath. Remove the pancake from the pan and keep it warm while you make the remaining pancakes with the rest of the batter.
Serve with berries and a touch of maple syrup for a healthy option, or dark/bittersweet chocolate chips for a treat.
