Protein Powder Pancakes Recipe

Pancake recipes made from protein powder.  No flour or oil but still delicious and packed with protein!

I have been reading some fitness and health blogs lately and it is blowing my mind.  These women are creative with what they eat and I have been so inspired.  So I stumbled on a few different recipes for pancakes or waffles using protein powder and came up with my own variation. 

These pancakes are packed with protein and are made without any flour or oil.  And the only other main ingredients are egg whites and bananas.  It is literally like having a protein shake but in pancake form.  Because some mornings you just need something warm and comforting.  Be prepared to be amazed.

Each recipe makes one serving.  Approximately 200 calories.

Chocolate Protein Powder Pancakes

3 egg whites
1 scoop/serving of chocolate protein powder
1/2 banana
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoon almond milk (or more to make it pancake consistency)

Mash the bananas with the almond milk.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Heat skillet to medium and spray with cooking spray.  Pour batter, cook, and flip!

I sprinkled a few chocolate chips on top or you could even drizzle a little maple syrup. 

Protein Powder Pancakes with Strawberries

3 egg whites
1 scoop/serving of vanilla protein powder
1/2 banana
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoon almond milk (or more to make it pancake consistency)
strawberries

Mash the bananas with the almond milk.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Heat skillet to medium and spray with cooking spray.  Pour batter, cook, and flip!

Cut up a few strawberries and top with a drizzle of maple syrup.  Oh my goodness...it is so good!
