Maca + Banana Pancakes
Maca + Banana Protein Pancakes
My usual banana pancakes got a superfood makeover! I've include the hormone balancing, vitamin packed Maca powder in this stack. It's caramel like flavour is the perfect partner for Bananas! Enjoy x
275g ripe Banana (roughly 3 medium bananas)
1/2 cup Egg whites (or 3 whole free range eggs if you prefer)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 tablespoons of Protein powder of choice*
2 teaspoons Maca Powder
2 teaspoons Chia seeds
2 teaspoons Flax seeds
1 teaspoon Almond milk
In a large bowl mash banana well. Add egg whites, vanilla and cinnamon to mashed banana.
Stir in protein*, Maca, chia, flax and almond milk.
Let the batter sit for 5 minutes while the chia seeds work their magic! This makes for a slightly fluffy pancake.
Heat a frying pan on medium heat with a teaspoon of coconut oil.
Pour pancakes to desired size. About a tablespoon each.
Flip when you see bubbles and cook for a further minute. Add more coconut oil as you go.
Top any way you'd like. I top with nut butter, coconut yogurt, toasted coconut or hemp seeds. Serve with fruit. Enjoy! x
*Note: I use a plant-based pea protein, but any protein you have at home will work. Just be sure it is suitable for children if sharing with your kiddos.
You can sub 4 tablespoons of almond meal if you don't have protein powder but you may need to add up to a tablespoon of almond milk to loosen the batter. It should just pour.
