Protein Pancake

Fluffy pancakes are being served up all over the city for Stampede, but this version will most definitely keep you satiated longer with the protein punch they pack, and the lack of over-processed sugary toppings makes for a much healthier choice. My current favourite toppings are nectarines doused in cinnamon.

3-Ingredient Protein Pancakes

Makes 2 servings (2 large or 4 medium pancakes)

1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup egg whites
2 scoops protein powder

Optional mix-ins: based on some feedback (thanks!), the below also work well if you're looking for an even more robust pancake
Oats
Cottage cheese

Optional toppings: these are the ones shown above, but feel free to get creative with your own!
Cinnamon - I also sprinkle some into the batter before cooking
Fresh fruit
Plain Greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt for a non-dairy option)

Mix the mashed banana and egg whites together until well blended. Stir in protein powder and add cinnamon to taste. Cook over low heat in a frying pan with 1/2 tsp melted coconut oil. Once bubbles form, carefully flip.

Depending on which protein powder I use I've either used a little less egg whites, or added 1/2 - 1 TB of milk to get the right consistency batter.

Enjoy! Let me know which topping concoctions you come up with:D
