Day 308: Protein Banana Pancakes

Yield: 12 pancakes
Time (Start to Finish): 40 min

1 cup flour
3 ½ tsp baking powder
½ cup vanilla protein powder
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 ½ cup milk
1 egg
3 Tbsp butter
2 bananas, chopped

butter (for cooking)
syrup (for topping)

1. Preheat your skillet to med, and melt the 3 Tbsp of butter in the skillet
2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, protein powder and sugar
3. Add the milk and the egg and stir until not totally combined
4. Add the butter, and stir until just combined. You want it thick, but a little runny, pourable, so you can add more milk if it is not. Add the bananas
5. On the buttered skillet, pour the batter about ¼ cup for each pancake
6. Flip when little bubbles appear on top, and cook till brown on both sides.
7. Butter the pan after each cooking

Notes: These pancakes are just the beginning…I know how to make these even better and more amazing, so expect and v.2 of these. I made these in the morning, and doubled the recipe because Mac wanted them as a snack later in the day. Nothing like cold banana pancakes with peanut butter and raisins. You gotta try these, but I must say, the fact that they have protein powder made me feel like it was ok to eat 5! They are fluffy, buttery, and just a great pancake recipe. Oh, and we cooked them on a grill pan which was kind of fun and left cool marks
