Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup – optional
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries – optional

Instructions

  1. Add all pancake ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on high for 15-30 seconds. Then let the batter sit for a few minutes to help it thicken up. 
  2. Heat up a pan or griddle to medium heat and grease it with some more butter. Pour the batter in 1/4 cup amounts onto the buttered, hot griddle, top with fresh blueberries and cook them for about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Plate them and serve with your favorite pancake toppings.

Equipment

Notes

  • Use a semi-ripe banana, if possible for the best flavor. If you do not have a ripe banana then you can add an extra dash of maple syrup.
  • The maple syrup in the pancake batter is optional and can also be substituted with stevia or munfruit if you prefer.
  • You want to make sure to use a vanilla or unflavoured protein powder in this recipe since flavored powders will alter the taste. A higher quality protein powder works best since the lower quality versions can alter the flavor of these pancakes. 
  • To store these pancakes after they are cooked, let them cool then keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
