Blueberry Banana Protein Pancakes

Yasssss lazy mornings call for PANCAKES… with over 20g of protein per portion, these are perfect for keeping you fuller for longer!

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 70g porridge oats
  • 150g blueberries (to top)

METHOD:

  1. Mash the bananas into a pulp, and beat in the eggs and oats to make the pancake mixture.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan on a high heat and add the mix with one spoonful per pancake (they should be quite small so they are easier to turn).
  3. Cook until brown on the underside and then flip (it should be around 2minutes per side).
  4. Top with blueberries or the toppings of your choice – peanut butter or maple syrup is also nice!
  5. Enjoy!

NUTRITION

Eggs – Eggs are the most useful protein source as they provide essential amino acids (the building molecules of protein), which are also absorbed most efficiently by the body.

Porridge oats – high in fibre for digestion and slow energy releasing carbohydrates to keep you going!

Bananas – High in potassium for fluid balance and muscle contraction, and containing naturally occurring sugars to keep your energy up for longer!
