August 12th, Protein Pancakes?

I'm sure you've heard of them, and maybe some of you have already tried a few recipes, but I wanted to share my recipe for the Best Ever Protein Pancakes. These pancakes are full of healthy ingredients and an easy way to get the carbs and protein you need after a good workout. They keep well, and are a great alternative to a protein bar. Here is the recipe!
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1&1/2 cups your choice of milk
  • 1tbsp+1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • handful of almonds (optional)

Blend oats and milk until smooth, add chopped banana, almonds, flour, baking powder and protein powder. Blend until batter is a nice thick consistency. Let batter sit for 10 minutes. Pre-heat a skillet then make yourself some protein packed goodness! Makes approximately 10-12 pancakes in 1/4 cup increments.

Incredibly easy and a nutritious way to enjoy proper amounts of carbs/protein/fats. They are delicious with or without syrup! I top mine with some blueberries and no-sugar added raspberry preserves. If you make the recipe please post to the Facebook page what you thought! Enjoy!

If you have any nutrition questions you would like us to answer in an upcoming Coaches Corner video please message us on Facebook or leave them in the question box at Fitness Together Point Loma!
