Peanutbutter Banana Protein Pancakes… (dairy free and gluten free)

Every weekend my husband asks me to make Pancakes. Today was no different, but I wanted to mix it up a bit. So here is our delicious breakfast for under 300 Calories, loaded with goodness.

Ingredients:
6 eggwhites (I use all eggwhites)
1 cup of quick oates finely ground
1 scoop protein powder – I used Sun Warrior Blend  it’s Vegan
2 tbsp of PB2
1 medium banana
Makes 3 servings of about 3.5 pancakes

Directions:
Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then mush the banana with a fork and add all the ingredients to the egg whites. Fold everything together, don’t over mix, or the egg whites will loose their fluffyness and you will have a runny bater.
Then cook like regular pancakes.
Instead of syrup, I cook up some berries or Cherries with just a tad of water. And instead of butter, I put about 2 Tbsp of So Delicous Vanilla yogurt.
These pancakes are dairy free and gluten free

Protein Pancakes Take 2…

I wasn’t happy with the pancakes from 2 weeks ago, so I made another batch and these were super yummy and fluffy.

Ingriedients:

6 egg whites (you must you egg whites cause you want to beat them stiff and that doesn’t work with egg beaters, or the “real” eggwhites in a carton)
1 cup of oatmeal, ground in a blender
1 scoop of Warrior Blend Protein Chocolate Flavor
1/2 cup of So Delicious Vanilla coconut yogurt

Beat the eggwhites until they are stiff, you should be able to turn your bowl upside down.
Then add all the other ingridients and fold them under.
Heat the griddle and make pancakes.
This makes aprox. 8-10 pancakes.

To save on sugar, I heated up some frozen blueberries with some water, and poured that over my stack and then put a dollup of Dairy free Vanilla Yogurt on top.

1/4 cup brown rice flour
2 scoops of Warrior Blend Protein Powder Chocolate Flavor ( you can use any protein powder but it will change the nurtients)
1tsp Baking Powder

Chocolate Protein Pancakes…

I woke up this morning having a craving for Pancakes. So off to Pinterest I went and searched for Protein Pancakes. I found a recipe that sounded great. When I went to my fridge, I noticed my cottage cheese was not so fresh anymore, but I had unopened Ricotta in there so that is what I substituted. Also I reduced the eggwhites, cause the first batch was terrible and landed in the disposal. So here we go:

This makes 4 big pancakes:

2 egg whites
1/2 cup low fat Ricotta
1/2 cup oats
1/2 scoop of Protein powder (I used Cellu-Cor Molten Chocolate)

Put in blender and mix.

Then prepare like regular pancakes, medium heat. I put some cooking spray on my griddle.

Glutenfree Banana Blueberry Pancakes…

I was searching for a healthier alternative for Pancakes, cause this gal loves pancakes. I also love Pinterest and I found a recipe for these pancakes and had made them a while back, they came out really pretty. Well today I had added the blueberries and I think that was a mistake. They still were absolutely delicious but just not as pretty.
So here is the recipe:
1 banana mashed up really well
1/2 cup of egg whites (equal to two egg whites)
a sprinkle of cinnamon
1/4 cup of blue berries
mix all well in a bowl

Heat you griddle, I have a gas stove so I set it on 8, spray it with cooking spray, spoon your mixture out on the griddle. This made 4 pancakes for me.

190 calories, 12gr protein, 35gr carbohydrates and 1g fat. (these are all simple carbs as they come from the fruit)
I topped my pancakes with Vermont sugar free syrup.

Enjoy!!!

Here are the ones I made a little while back and the ones from today are on the bottom.
