The best Banana Protein Pancakes recipe

What do you like having for breakfast? Sweet or savory? I tend to lean more towards sweet so this Banana Protein pancake recipe is one I make quite often. My kids can’t tell that I add protein to pancakes sometimes which is a plus. If you aren’t a protein fan, you can use something else in place of the protein. Whole wheat flour or Oat flour will work just fine.

Are homemade pancakes healthy 

Depending on how you make your pancakes will determine how healthy they are. If you use whole grain or whole wheat flour which has more fiber and more filling than white flour then you have increased your odds right there. To sweeten your pancakes, instead of using sugar, use ripe bananas instead. For a high protein pancake like this banana protein, pancake recipe add some more protein to the mix. Most homemade pancaked are much healthier than most pancakes served at restaurants.

Can you reheat protein pancakes

I make a huge batch of this banana protein pancake and save some for the next day. When ready for pancakes, I simply reheat them. Usually, i make huge batches of protein pancakes or waffles and reheat them. It is very safe to reheat your protein pancakes.

    Hello! I tried this today!!

    I used 2 eggs (I didnt separate the yolks and the whites. I just manually whipped them up until they got fluffy), added 1 scoop (30grams) vanilla protein powder, 1tsp baking powder, and 2 bananas.

    I didn’t bother mashing the bananas, I just sliced them into cubes and mixed them up with the eggs, protein, and baking powder. I cooked them in low heat. I think 1 minute per side (probably less because I burnt my first pancake HAHA)

    THE PANCAKES TURNED OUT FLUFFY AND REALLY FLAVORFUL! I no longer need to add chocolate or maple syrup. Maybe it’s because I used 2 bananas instead of just 1?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE!! I tried 3 recipes already and your recipe is the only one that’s the easiest and super fluffy.

    The pancakes are really delicious, even without any toppings! Make sure to cook them on low heat, they burn pretty easily. I didn’t quite follow the recipe, I just mixed everything together and they still turned out nice and fluffy!

    For all make sure you add a flower in it. Could be oat flower, plain flower and so on….. add only 2 table spoons if your following this recipe. I to found out the hard way and the next day i made,” it came out wicked and i jumped for joy.

    I made these for lunch today, and they turned out very tasty! I didn’t have any vanilla flavored protein powder, so I used a scoop of unflavored protein powder, and added 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 Tbsp monkfruit sweetener. I didn’t read the instructions carefully enough and ended up blending everything together at once, but they still turned out great! Very light, fluffy, kind of spongy but not in a bad way. I bet if I followed the instructions they would be even better, haha. Will definitely make again!

    This became my almost-every day breakfast! I tried with banana, strawberry or even apple mousse! My friend likes dish. Everything is great! Thanks for this recipe !!

    It is horrible and it is not fluffy at all and sticks to your gums. Stays raw, burns very quickly and you can not flip them at all. They are flat as paper. I do not recommend them at all.

      Hi Johan. I am sorry this didn’t work for you. We didn’t experience that. What type of protein did you use? It sometimes makes a huge difference.

        It’s absolutely delicious but unfortunately it didn’t work for me. It didn’t turn out fluffy or thick as the picture. I followed the recipe as per instructions. I used banana strawberry flavor protein though and turned out so yummy . I’m not sure what I could have done wrong. I will definitely give it another try until it works

      You definitely didn’t do it the right way. Look at all the reviews. Everybody’s having a good time and think it’s an amazing recipe. We made them several time over the past few days and all was perfectly fine. Best fluffy pancakes ever made so far.
