LIGHT & FLUFFY BANANA PROTEIN PANCAKES
Makes: 8 Pancakes
1 30g scoop vanilla protein powder
1 large very ripe banana
⅛ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
In two clean bowls, separate the eggs carefully so none of the yolk gets into the egg whites. Beat the egg whites on high for 2 minutes until they form soft peaks. (It is important that your bowl or beaters don’t have any oil, fat or yolks on them, or the egg whites won’t form peaks. Soft peaks are defined as barely holding their shape. The peaks flop over immediately when the beaters are lifted.)
Add the remaining ingredients to the egg yolks and beat until smooth. Gently fold ⅓ of the egg white mixture into the banana mixture until roughly combined. Fold the rest of the remaining eggs whites into the mixture until everything is well combined.
Heat a pan over low heat.
Spray pan with fry light cooking spray.
Scoop a large spoonful of the mixture onto the pan and cook for 60-90 seconds on each side.
OPTIONAL: Top with fresh fruit and/or ⅓ c. plain non-fat Greek yogurt mixed with 1 Tbsp. honey or sprinkling of cinnamon.
