In a couple of videos lately I have shown a protein pancake recipe I’ve been making at least 4 times a week. I love it because it’s very filling, fluffy, slightly sweet and of course, it’s high in protein which is something I like as I practice intermittent fasting and workout while fasting, so I want a good amount of protein in my first meal of the day.
I usually have it with some porridge on the side and it makes a fabulous, energizing breakfast that keeps me full for hours and it feels like a treat. I use pea protein powder for this recipe which I love because it behaves very much like flour, it gives the batter a nice, thick consistency and it’s almost tasteless so it doesn’t affect the flavour of the pancake in any way. I also like pure pea protein because it contains only 1 ingredient unlike most protein powders that are full of artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners. However, this is not necessary so feel free to use any flour of your choice for this recipe.
I place all the ingredients in the blender, then place the batter in a buttered skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side although this depends on the thickness of the pancake. While I like a stack of little pancakes, I have no time or patience for that so I make one big, fat pancake 🙂
I put a little bit of ghee on the top and a teaspoon of grade B maple syrup. Delicious.
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tbsp pea protein powder
- 1 banana
- 2 tbsp kefir or yogurt
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Place all ingredients in the blender except for the baking soda. Blend.
- Once they are blended, add the baking soda to the blender and combine with the batter.
- Pour batter into a preheated skillet on medium heat and cook for about 3-4 minutes until there are bubbles on the top and it can be easily lifted with a spatula.
- Flip it and cook for 3 minutes on the other side or until it looks golden brown.
- Serve with any toppings of your choice. I like ghee and maple syrup.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. What are your favourite pancake toppings?
