Who likes fluffy pancakes?! Who likes high-protein breakfasts!? Well, this one is for you! These protein pancakes are packed with protein and are amazingly fluffy! Not to mention... peanut butter chocolate flavored!
The secret to making these fluffy is to separate out the egg whites from the yolk, and to whip up the egg whites until they form soft peaks. I've done this by hand, and though it's doable, it's a total arm workout! If you have an electric beater, I recommend using it to whip the egg whites - it's a lot quick and easier!
The yolks get mixed with mashed banana, baking powder, salt, and chocolate peanut butter protein powder - making this recipe a 5-ingredient recipe!! Who doesn't love those?!
One thing to note, the protein powder I used was chocolate peanut butter flavored, but you can use whatever flavor you have on hand. Have vanilla protein powder? Make vanilla protein pancakes! They will be just as delicious!
Nutritional information for this recipe will vary based on the protein powder you use, and the size of your banana. Below is the nutritional information when using a protein powder that has 130 calories and 19g of protein per 40g; and a 125g banana.
