Banana pancakes are simply the best choice for your breakfast.Print
Here are the ingredients (and quantities) necessary to prepare 4 delicious banana pancakes.
- 2 tablespoons psyllium husk
- 6 tablespoons water
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 scoops whey protein, vanilla or cinnamon flavor
- extra-virgin olive oil spray
- In a small bowl, mix the psyllium husk and water. Set aside.
- Peel the banana, and put it in a medium bowl. Mash with a fork until mostly smooth. Add the psyllium husk slurry, eggs, vanilla, and baking soda, and stir until mostly smooth. Add the protein powder, and stir until a relatively smooth batter forms.
- Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, and lightly coat with olive oil spray. Pour one-quarter of the batter into the pan, forming a cake about 8 inches in diameter. Let it cook undisturbed for about 1 minute, until many tiny bubbles form on top. Flip the pancake, and cook for about 1 minute more, until cooked through and the center is no longer runny.
- Remove from the skillet, repeat with the remaining batter, and serve.
- Ingredient tip 1: Psyllium husk can be found in the bulk food section or health food aisle of mostg rocery stores.
- Ingredient tip 2: Not all protein powder is created equal, so choose your brand wisely. It will affect the taste, texture, and nutrition of the pancakes.
- Ingredient tip 3: Lastly, for the bananas, you want the gross-looking brown ones you are about to throw away. Truly.
- Serving tips: Eat the pancakes plain or garnish as you like. For a low-calorie topping, try a sugar-free maple syrup. If you don’t mind adding a few calories, melted peanut butter, banana slices, chopped walnuts, or honey are all delicious.
