Jumbo Protein Oatmeal Banana Pancake

Pancake Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp (15g) Whey Protein Isolate
  • ½ cup (40g) oats
  • ¼ cup (60g) mashed banana; approx. half a small banana
  • ¼ cup (60ml) egg whites or 1 large whole egg
  • 2 tbsp (15ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract or powder
  • Pinch or two of cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp coconut oil, melted

Icing Ingredients

This single jumbo pancake is perfect to whip up this weekend. The high carb recipe makes it perfect for post workout, restoring your glycogen and fuelling your pumped muscles with protein via both the pancake itself and the protein icing.

But it is also easy on the tummy, satisfying and oh so tasty! Why keep it for post workout only? We might have to make a couple this Sunday as the perfect breakfast treat, workout or not!

Want to make a version which is dairy free? We advise substituting the Whey Isolate in the pancake mixture itself to Pea Protein and using Organic Sunflower Protein in the icing. You can also use chia eggs to make the recipe vegan friendly too and gluten free oats for a gluten free version.

Suggested Toppings

  • Dark Chocolate (Michelle used 90% cacao)
