This recipe is one of my favourite ‘go-to’ recipes and is great for adding a bit of variety to your breakfasts.
1 large banana
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
Any flavour powder will work, just use whatever you prefer.
Put all the ingredients into a smoothie cup and blend together for about a minute. It’s important the batter is smooth and without lumps.
If you want to increase the amount of batter (to make more pancakes) add about 200ml of milk to the mixture.
In a little olive oil or low-calorie spray, fry the mixture in a flat pan.
Add the batter slowly, allowing it to spread across the pan into 4-inch sized pancakes
Fry each side for about a minute. You can tell when they’re ready to flip as bubbles will appear on the top. Make sure you check the pancake isn’t burning by lifting it up. Once browned and solid, flip it over to cook the other side.
Once the pancake is cooked, transfer to a plate. Add some more oil and batter until you have a nice pancake stack.
Here I’ve topped them with yoghurt, almonds and honey. But the options are really up to you.
Other good toppings are more banana, eggs, berries or cherries.
