Whole Wheat Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 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” Gold Standard vanilla whey protein powder

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup (148g) fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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! 

  4. 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.

  5. Enjoy warm with the toppings of your choice. Our favorites are fresh fruit, maple syrup, or nut butter (macros not included.)

Notes:

  1. 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.

  2. If you use frozen blueberries, do not thaw before adding to the pancakes.
