Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Nutrition Facts: 126 calories / 17.5g carbs / 6g protein / 4g fat
½ cup (123g) fat free milk
1 small (101g) banana (mashed)
2 eggs (100g)
2 tablespoons (28g) canola or avocado oil
2 tablespoons (42g) honey
1 cup (120g) whole wheat flour
1 scoop (31g) Optimum Nutrition vanilla whey protein powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup (148g) fresh or frozen blueberries
Whisk together the milk, mashed banana, eggs, oil and honey in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the flour, protein powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and mix just until combined.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium low heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. When the pan is warm, add ¼ cup batter to the pan. Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons of blueberries.
Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until you see a few bubbles around the edges. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the pancake is just cooked through. The pancakes cook very quickly on the second side, so be careful not to overdo them!
Remove the pancake to a plate and repeat the process with the remaining batter. You should end up with 10 pancakes total. If you wish to speed up the process, use 2 skillets simultaneously.
Enjoy warm with the toppings of your choice. Our favorites are fresh fruit, maple syrup, or nut butter (macros not included.)
This recipe also works for meal prep! Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Reheat in the microwave, covered with a damp paper towel, for 30-60 seconds.
If you use frozen blueberries, do not thaw before adding to the pancakes.
