Easy (Protein) Pancakes…

Thought I would share this because I know I have one or two readers trying to avoid gluten. These just happen to be a protein pancake that I make to curb a sweet tooth:

2 ripe bananas
4 eggs
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup of oat flour
Dash of cinnamon.
Dash of Vanilla
Blueberries (optional)
Coconut oil


In blender, mix bananas and eggs until smooth. Don’t let eggs get too frothy- point is to mush bananas into liquid.

In another bowl, mix together your protein powder, oat flour and cinnamon. Pour banana/egg mixure into bowl and mixed until combined. Dash of vanilla comes in at this time. If you like, you can toss in a handful of blueberries now for anti-oxidant goodness. Fresh work better as far as cooking evenness than frozen but I use what I have on hand.

Heat coconut oil in skillet (you want the properties of the coconut oil… I don’t recommend anything else because these are kinda “treat” anyway. Try to make it more healthy!) Pour drip in scoopfuls of the pancake batter. Watch for bubbles to form in your pancake and when they do, FLIP!

I eat these plain.. but I suppose you could make a simple compote out of the blueberries or drizzle with honey or whatever, but they are plenty sweet enough without!
