Banana Protein Pancakes

There’s not much to dislike when it comes to pancakes. I’m sure everyone loves a big plate of 'em once in a while. Of course, we all have our preferences, but I do think pancakes are pure delight. Right? But because many of us now follow a healthier lifestyle, we don’t indulge into a pancake feast so often. Well, what if you only used fruit as a sweetener and packed your pancakes with protein? Wouldn’t that be a healthier alternative?

I have to thank my friend for sharing this banana pancake idea and my fiancé for altering the recipe to create soft and fluffy protein pancakes. In our house, he’s the pancake master, but I promise to keep up and, maybe even become better than him one day.

Serves 1   |   1 cup – 250 ml   |   5 mins prep & 10 mins for cooking


  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup of plain flour or 1/4 cup of GF flour mix*
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 - 1,5 tbsp of liquid coconut oil (or neutral tasting cold pressed sunflower oil, or even olive oil)

Mash banana well with a fork, mix with eggs, cinnamon and oil using a balloon whisk. Mix in flour.Heat a large non-stick frying pan. Spoon a bit of mixture onto the pan to form small round pancakes. Flip after about a minute or less to make both sides nicely brown.Serve with sliced banana and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

* I use a mixture of equal parts of rice flour, coconut flour & cornstarch.
