protein, oats, pancake

This is a nice, easy pancake recipe for whenever you want a little treat or as a high-protein option for pancake day.

Protein pancakes

3 whole eggs

2 egg whites

1 scoop whey protein powder

1 ripe banana

1/3 cup oats

½ tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

Simply put all ingredients into a blender and mix. You may need to add a little water if the consistency is too thick (this will depend on your protein powder).

Ladle into a warm pan with a little coconut oil.

Cook on one side until bubbles start to appear then flip over and continue cooking, you want a golden brown colour to the pancake.

Serve and eat straight away with fresh berries and Greek yoghurt or sliced banana and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate or maple syrup.
