Protein Banana Pancakes

2 Stacks335 cals

Keep the macros and level up your breakfast with these Protein Banana Pancakes! This high protein pancake recipe is healthy, packed with bananas, and made with just a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand!

For this recipe you’re going to need either a blender or food processor to fully incorporate your oats and a pan or griddle to cook your pancakes on.

Add right into your blender or food processor 1/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute or milk, 1 large whole egg, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 3/4 cup of steel cut or 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 1 medium ripe banana cut into slivers, and 1/2 scoop of vanilla or banana protein powder.

Don’t like the taste of cottage cheese? Don’t worry, you can’t taste it at all and it adds some casein (slow digesting) protein to the recipe.

Blend or process everything until your protein banana pancakes mix is smooth.

Banana Pancakes

Change up the flavor of your pancakes with your protein powder! Want more of a chocolate banana taste? Use a chocolate protein powder.

You could also optionally lightly mix in anything else you want your pancakes to have like some chocolate chips, crushed up nuts, pieces of fruit, and so on. Let us know what healthy and creative ways you make these in the comments below!

Take out your stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray.

Pour your protein banana pancakes mix on once your pan heats up and cook each side of your pancake for around 2-3 minutes. Depending on how big or small you made your pancake(s) this may take more or less time so keep an eye on it.

Remove your protein banana pancakes from the heat and top them! I topped mine with some sugar free syrup, ground cinnamon, and whipped topping today.

        Awesome Ana!!! I’m glad you liked them. I am fine as well, thanks for asking. Have a great week!

    I made these today for breakfast. Trust me when I say I HATE oatmeal. Made the recipe like this but added a teaspoon of p2b. Added about 8-10 sugar free chocolate chips and topped with Walden farms chocolate syrup. First bite and I could taste everything. The oatmeal( but it tasted more nutty), the banana, the peanut butter and of course the chocolate. And it makes a ton of batter. Good one Derek!

      Awesome Chris! Thanks for the great feedback

    I am late to the party, but you are my go to source when I am in the mood for something. So I looked up pancakes and had most of the ingredients in house. The recipe tasted great but stuck to my pan like glue. After two failed pancakes, I just nuked the batter and ate it out of a bowl. Best oatmeal/pancakes I have had in a long time. Will try again and maybe make the batter thicker and use a little more oil.

    Thanks again for keeping my taste buds entertained.

      I’ll never not like reading stuff like this. Thanks Jamie! I’ll do my best to keep them entertained for as long as possible!

    My blender likely sucks but I had to double the liquid. However my children are eating them for dinner right now! I win for sneaking protein into them 🙂

    • Derek Howes on January 29, 2013 at 12:00 am

      That’s awesome! 🙂 Glad they came out good
