Almond Banana Protein Pancakes

Warm, fluffy, and thick pancakes with the perfect hint of banana flavor. This is one of those recipes I go back to again and again. Perfect every time!




Almond Banana Protein Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/4 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons almond flour
2 tablespoons vanilla whey protein
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 ounces banana (about half a medium banana)
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons egg whites
1/2 teaspoon butter extract (optional)

Directions:

1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray.
2. Blend your oats into flour (I use my Ninja food processor).
3. Add the remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.
4. Add a spoonful of batter to the pan at a time. Flip when the edges set and the pancakes start to form small bubbles.
5. Eat!

I like layering mine with sliced banana and PB2, or Greek yogurt sweetened with stevia.
