This morning I woke up to about 8+ inches of snow on the ground and it was 16 degrees out, BRRR. Luckily school was cancelled last night so we got to enjoy a nice sleep in. Every time we have a snow day my husband usually asks for a nice breakfast in the morning, so today I wanted to share with you two different pancake recipes to fit your lifestyle. The first recipe is a Healthy Protein Pancake and the second is a traditional pancake recipe that has been passed down in my family.
I plan to get an indoor workout in later today so this morning I made my favorite protein pancake recipe. There is no flour, sugar, or oil. Which makes them very healthy and they are still satisfying.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2½-3 scoops favorite vanilla protein powder
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 egg whites
- ¾ cup almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- cooking spray
- Mash bananas either using a fork or electric mixer.
- As the bananas mash I mix together the protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Then add to the mashed bananas.
- Beat in the egg whites, almond milk, and vanilla until the batter is no longer 'lumpy'.
- Spray a skillet or pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat to med-low before adding about ¼ cup of pancake batter.
- Watch carefully and cook for about 1 minute or watch for when the bubbles at the top of the pancake begin to burst. Then flip the pancake and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
All the ingredients.
Mash the bananas so there are no lumps.
Beat all of the ingredients.
Add non-stick cooking spray to a griddle or pan and heat to med-low. Add about 1/4 cup of the batter. Watch these pancakes as they cook because they can easily burn. Flip the pancake when the bubbles at the top begin to burst and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Top with REAL MAPLE SYRUP (I buy mine at Target) and/or your favorite fruits. Enjoy this healthy and delicious way to start your day.
Now remember that time that I told you that I am NOT a PERFECT clean eater. There are some mornings when I need ‘pancakes pancakes’ if ya know what I mean. There is NO need to use a pancake mix when making your own is seriously so simple and I personally think they taste 1000 times better. This pancake recipe has been passed down on my mom’s side of the family and is the perfect comfort food for those rainy, snowy, or hangover mornings. Click here to view Grandma’s Pancake Recipe.
