"I wanted a delicious pancake breakfast that was also healthy and included protein because I love to lift weights and keep in shape. Looks like I found a keeper, and I hope you enjoy it too. There's no sugar, butter, or wheat, just sweet potato, banana, eggs, milk, oatmeal, and vanilla whey powder. It's great for anyone but especially bodybuilders who are adding mass or even cutting, depending on how you use this. Add a little maple syrup to your pancakes and say goodbye to unhealthy sweet-tooth cravings!" — angelak88

rolled oats, or more to taste
sweet potato, chopped
vanilla whey protein powder, or more to taste
vegetable oil, or as needed
The nutrition info on this cannot be correct. Only 2.5 grams of protein per serving seems low if you are adding protein powder. Most powders have at least 20 grams of protein per scoop and this calls for a 1/4 cup. The eggs alone will give each serving 1 gram or protein. Thanks for submitting it!
I wrote this recipe. (1) The pancake does not need to be cooked brown for a full 3-4 minutes, just whenever you see bubbles form. (2) Flip and cook only for between 30-60 seconds (or until however brown it gets to your liking). Cooking the other side for another 3-4 minutes will burn the pancake and make it dry and tough rather than soft and moist. (3) Please peel the skin off the potatoes before use!
Better than most protein pancakes I've had!! Great snack for my little guy.
This batter was basically pure liquid. I had to triple the oats and added some ww flour. They tasted purely like sweet potatoes so I added some cinnamon and vanilla extract. Even after all the additions they were still very soupy but actually able to be made. Will not be making again, although it is a very interesting idea to get your protein. I really wish this had worked better.
