Vanilla protein pancakes

Pancakes are incredible. That’s a fact. But if you’re like me and you need a healthy, satisfying power breakfast that packs enough protein to keep me full and fueled for the day, sometimes the classic pancake isn’t enough. Luckily, pancakes are easily subject to fitness hacks. I’ve seen loads of protein pancake/skinny pancake/etc. recipes floating around on Pinterest, so I decided to try my hand at them with the ingredients I had on hand.

Vanilla protein pancakes
Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredients:
1 cup flour (all-purpose or other)
1 egg
2 tbsp Earth Balance (or butter/other butter substitute)
Pinch of salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Drizzle of vegetable oil (I only had olive oil on hand and it worked fine)
1 packet Vega vanilla protein powder

I added sugar when I made them, but honestly there is no need to, at least if you are using a flavored protein powder like I was! And if you use syrup or some other sweetener, it’s really more than enough sweetness!

Warning: these are SUPER filling! They truly are a power breakfast, perfect for days where I need energy for a high intensity workout. The girlfriend and I made them with bananas, but other fruits would be great, too, as would toppings like peanut butter or jam.

Enjoy!

Peace, sweat and love,

G.
