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.
