Hands up if you love pancakes!
I confess to loving all things sweet. But I also love finding healthy alternatives to treats. Don’t get me wrong – I still think eating unhealthy once in a while is a good thing. I don’t believe in cutting out cakes and sweets. But I do prefer a healthy alternative for those weeks where I have already overdosed on cakes (it happens).
These pancakes are super healthy and packed with protein, yet they taste delicious. It’s a great and healthy weekend treat that will leave you fealing energized and full.
These pancakes are great with a heaping of fresh berries and greek yoghurt for that extra luxurious feeling.
For those days where I crave extra pampring, I like to mix sugar with lime zest and pour on top of the berries. If you havent tried this yet you DEFINITELY need to. It’s like a small bite of heaven (if I could get away with it, I would put it in every cake recipe).
As an added bonus, these pancakes also meet my laziness criteria – they are quick and easy to make.
So if you are in the mood for a healthy treat, then get cooking.
Super Healthy Protein Pancakes
- 1 egg
- 1 banana
- 8.8 oz Rolled Oats
- 1 tbsp Coconut oil
- Pinch Of Cinnamon
- 1 Dollop of Greek Yoghurt
- 1 Cup Fresh Fruits
- Peel and chop the banana. Mix the banana, protein powder, eggs, cinnamon powder and oats in a blender to make your batter. Heat up half the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Use a large spoon to pour little pancakes into the pan. You should get around 3 small pancakes with half of the batter. Cook for about 1 minute on each side. Remove the pancakes when cooked and repeat with the rest of the batter. Serve the pancakes with a dollop of yoghurt and some fresh berries. Tip: Use as many spices as you like. I also like to use cardamom, fresh basil leaves and a little lemon juice.
