Early Morning Healthy Protein Pancakes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

5 am. That’s what time my alarm clock went off this morning. I looked over at my phone to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. I responsibly hit the off button and walked into the bathroom to get ready. I normally wake up around eight, but I promised a friend I would go to Waxhaw early this morning to do some photography. My eyes were pretty heavy, but I managed to brew some coffee while getting ready. There is nothing I can’t do when coffee is involved.

Around 6:15, we headed out to the country side to chase the sunset. I was shocked at how many cars were on the back roads that early. Traffic or not, it was still gorgeous. It felt like fall this morning. I had jeans, a flannel shirt, and a light jacket on. The cold breeze sent reminded me that football starts saturday. Oh, how I love Fall 🙂

I got back to my place around 9:30 this morning. I missed spin class, but that’s OK. I wanted to run today anyways. One thing about waking up early is that it makes me super hungry. I was craving pancakes this morning, and decided to make healthy protein pancakes. I’ve made different of variations of the banana egg pancake, but I really like when protein powder is added.

This banana egg pancake recipe had: 4 egg whites, 1 yolk, 1 serving genisoy protein powder, 1 medium extra ripe banana, 1 packet stevia, and blueberries.

-Using an electric mixer, combine the eggs and banana.
-Once the banana and egg mixture is foamy, slowly mix in the protein powder and stevia.

Grease a frying pan and heat it on medium heat.

Add 1/2 cup to the pan and let the bottom cook. You’ll know when the bottom is done because it’ll start to bubble on the edges and in the center.

Flip the pancake over and cook the other side for 40-60 seconds.

Repeat for the rest of the pancakes. I added blueberries to the last two.

    I’ve been looking for a good “healthy” pancake recipe. Is there any way I could sub flour or something for the protein powder?

      I usually grind up oats in a blender and so it turns into oat flour and put that in with some ground up flax seeds

    Hi Taralynn! I’m a longtime follower of your blog. I came across your picture used as an ad for weight loss pills for the website celebritylifestyletrends.com. I tried to find an email address to send you a screenshot but I don’t see one on here, so here is the link to the picture. Just figured you’d want to know.
