Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 7 mins
Total Time 12 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder optional

Instructions

  • In a blender, mix together all of the ingredients until combined and smooth.
  • Preheat griddle to medium-high. Spray with cooking spray. Using a tablespoon, scoop pancake mixture on the pan so it forms a medium circle (use about 2 heaping tablespoons for each pancake).
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes on the first side or until edges start to harden and bubbles start to form on surface. Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side.
  • Top with sliced banana, peanut butter, chocolate chips, coconut and maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

  • For best results, use a very ripe banana to incorporate more sweetness into the pancakes.
  • You can use a whey or vegan protein powder for the purpose of this recipe. I have tested both and enjoyed the taste with each one. 
  • You can use egg whites from a whole egg or purchase a carton of egg whites.
  • If the pancake batter is sitting for a while, it may start to thicken up slightly. You can thin it out by adding a bit of regular milk or a milk alternative such as almond milk.
  • The nutrition information included is calculated for one pancake and includes the use of vanilla protein powder.
