If you know me you know I’m obsessed with protein pancakes!!! I actually had to take a break from them because I was over-doing it and was close to burning out on them… I know I have pancake issues.
Anyways, I love to play with different toppings on pancakes and I had the idea to top them with this dairy free vanilla yogurt and WOW it was so good!! Side note- if you haven’t tried Lavva yogurt it is AMAZING!!! It has no added sugar, 50 billion probiotics, and no added junk or fillers- it is my favorite dairy free yogurt right now!
Back to the pancakes- this is my favorite recipe from Tone It Up, I just adapted it a little by adding flax/chia seeds and cinnamon!
Protein Pancake Recipe:
-1/2 Banana, mashed
-1/4 Cup of egg whites
-1 Scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use Tone It Up)
-Dash of almond milk (or any kind of nut milk)
-Dash of cinnamon
-Scoop of ground flax seed or chia seed (optional, but great to add for additional fiber and nutrients!)
Combine all ingredients together and then cook on a pan with coconut oil. You can make one big pancake but I like to make it into 3 little ones.. makes them more crispy!
Top with vanilla yogurt, pomegranate + hemp seeds!
You can also make the pancakes ahead of time and heat up in the microwave in the morning! Just add your toppings after and you have an easy + nutritious breakfast that will keep you full!
