How to make this recipe

  2. Next, heat a frying pan over medium heat and add a touch of cooking oil to the pan. Once the pan is hot, add a ¼ cup of the pancake batter and allow it to brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Continue with the remaining batter.
  3. Place the pancakes on a plate and add your favorite pancake toppings. Enjoy!

    I’ve made these pancakes twice + they were too liquid. I added 1 heaping teaspoon of spelt flour + whole wheat flour to thicken them up a little.

    They still tasted like banana + had the correct consistency.

    I used a collagen protein powder which might have been a finer powder than the 1 in the recipe.

      Hi there! This a thin batter but once the batter hits the pan, the eggs start to cook and they do hold their shape. I’m glad you know how to modify a recipe with the WW and spelt flour!
