Healthy Protein Pancakes

Healthy Protein Pancakes

angelak88

"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!"

  1. Place rolled oats into a food processor and grind to flour. Place sweet potato into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. Blend sweet potato, eggs, banana, and milk in a blender until smooth; pour batter into a large bowl. Stir protein powder and ground oats into batter.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat. Drop batter, about 1/4 cup per pancake, into the skillet, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Control thickness of batter by adding or subtracting milk! No oatmeal? No problem. Use less milk, or don't use milk at all.

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 howev...

Better than most protein pancakes I've had!! Great snack for my little guy.

I really liked this recipe. Instead of 4 eggs, I use 1/2 cup egg whites and it creates a lower calorie, higher protein pancake. My grandson loves them too. Sometimes I don't even put in the pro...

Taste good but doesn't have the consistency of pancakes

I upped the protein to half a cup, and did not use the oatmeal or milk. Lightly coated my cast iron skillet using coconut oil. Yum!

Overall, I loved these pancakes. The batter starts out very thin, but add 1/3 cup of flour and it fixes it right away. A dash of cinnamon is a nice addition too.

It was far to runny, so then we added some whole wheat flour and baking powder
