Protein Banana Pancakes!

I am super excited to tell you about……… BANANA PANCAKES! Say WHAT???? I can’t even begin to express how happy I am about these.

I recently started doing Pilates through a website, this girl is seriously awesome! Her name is Cassie Ho. Anyhow, she is all about clean eating and eating what is right for your body. She had this recipe of Banana Pancakes that I just tried today and it was awesome, so I wanted to talk about them to you today. Her recipe is as follows:

1 banana, 2 eggs, olive oil or coconut oil

Blend the eggs and banana together (I used a blender!)

Cook on olive oil-ed/ coconut oil-ed pan!

TA-DA Banana Pancakes!

But what I did that was a little different was I added some protein powder to my banana pancake mix as well. About a scoop of protein powder. Now its full of vitamins and protein and it is also very filling. Instead of syrup, I spread some sugar free strawberry jam over them! Unfortunately I ate the pancakes way to fast and didn’t even think to take a picture of them for you to see!  But seriously, its delicious, and filling. And you can make them and have extra for the next morning!

Guys, you don’t even know how excited I am about these pancakes right now.
