I love pancakes. Unfortunately, pancakes can be a sure fire way to send your blood sugar soaring. Not these puppies! These pancakes are completely grain-free, therefore also gluten-free, and loaded with more protein than your average carbohydrate-filled breakfast. And they are super simple to make. Just combine all of the ingredients below into a blender or small food processor and your batter is ready to go.
- 2 Eggs
- 1 large ripe banana
- 1 serving of protein powder (I use Innate Response's vanilla, vegan pea protein powder, it has 32 grams of protein)
- 1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- A bit of almond/coconut milk to thin batter to ideal consistency
Blend in your blender or food processor. Pour batter in pools of desired size on a hot grill or skillet. (For convenience, make sure they are an appropriate size for your spatula.) Allow for a few bubbles to appear in batter and then flip over. When they are cooked through- enjoy!
I love to top these with coconut oil. You can use whatever toppings you want- even add sliced bananas for a real banana pancake feast!
