As I’ve mentioned before, I’m always trying to get some protein for breakfast. And I LOVE fruit!!! So making protein pancakes is a regular staple in my mornings. I normally go for cinnamon, chocolate, or plain vanilla. I top it with greek yogurt and berries! Recently I was given a large amount of apples, so I began experimenting with putting them in my pancakes!
Apple cinnamon pancakes
- 2 ripe banana, mashed
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 scoop protein powder
- 2 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup of almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 medium apple, chopped (I like mine chopped because I like the chunks in my pancakes. If you don’t like this texture, chop them finely or even grate them to get a flatter pancake)
- cooking spray/ coconut oil
- for topping: chopped nuts, greek yogurt, and if desired you can drizzle honey or agave.
Mix all the ingredients!
Cook as a traditional protein pancake! LOW and SLOW. I cook on low for about 5 minutes on each side.
Tip: If you like, you can sauté the apples before mixing them into the batter. It can make sure they are soft and cooked all the way through.
Pile on a plate and top as you please!
Store any leftovers in the fridge or freezer and pull them out as you like.
What are your favorite protein pancakes? Any good recipes to share?
