I thought I’d break the trend for my protein pancake making on Sunday’s and make some banana berry protein pancakes on the Monday of the long weekend instead.
Today’s protein pancake recipe is banana berry protein pancakes, I say pancakes because if you are making this for two it will be pancakes (Unless you just cut the pancake in half), I usually only make one pancake and use the whole mix as the rest of the family don’t indulge.
Again, I have just finished wolfing this one down before the family gets up and it was pretty tasty.
1 x Full egg
½ a Banana
2 x Tablespoons of almond milk
¼ x cup of porridge (Quick Oats)
1 and a ½ scoops protein (I used a vanilla flavoured high protein powder)
1 x Teaspoon reds powder (A powder form berry mix supplement)
1 x teaspoon of organic honey (For later, don’t put in bowl)
1 x Tablespoon olive oil (For cooking in the pan)
How to Cook and Serve the Pancakes ::
Put all of the above (Not the honey or olive oil) into a mixing bowl and mix them all around with a fork, I usually write the above in the order I put them into the bowl, not that it matters too much, but just in case you were wondering.
Break up the banana into small pieces and then just kept on mixing until these were broken up into very small pieces in the bowl, when mixed in with the oats you can hardly even see the banana anyway.
This pancake batter made one big pancake as you can see or if you are sharing it would be quite easy to make two pancakes.
Next stage is to heat your frying pan on the stove, I usually put it on about half to ¾ maximum heat (We have a gas hot plate), wait for the pan to come up to a suitable temperature and then scoop the banana berry protein pancake mix into the pan at the sizes or size you are wanting to make, with me it is just one pour and one pancake.
Let the protein pancake cook for a while until you see the top layer bubble through and then flip the pancake over and then cook until the bottom second side is golden brown and the pancake is cooked through.
Grab your knife and fork, dip your fork into the pot of honey and drizzle over the pancake.
Serve and eat.
This Banana Berry Protein Pancake mix was very moist as far as pancakes go, quite filling, red in colour from the berry powder mix that was added and also tasted very good too.
There you go, I know a few of these are similar in ingredients to the last recipes, but they do vary a bit depending on time I have and what ingredients I have, I am thinking a high protein banana bread recipe would be nice for a change instead of cooking protein pancakes, maybe not for breakfast though, more of a mid afternoon or morning snack with a cup of tea, anyway, I’ll do a bit of investigating.
Also, after knocking up the photos, it makes you realise how long you can own a frying pan for, the marks on the rim are amplified immensely in the photograph, unlike food photographers, and my budget doesn’t allow me to purchase a new pan for every picture of the pancakes I make.
Enjoy and also enjoy the last day of the long weekend.
