- ¼ cup egg whites
- 1 scoop Unflavored Whey Protein Plus
- 1–2 tbsp. unsweetened almond or coconut milk
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 banana, mashed
Choose your topping! Pick just one, or mix and match based on your preference:
- All natural jam
- Almond or peanut butter
- All natural maple syrup
In a small bowl, mix together the egg whites, Whey Protein Plus powder, almond/coconut milk and chia seeds until all the powder is dissolved. Use a whisk will help to blend everything up more easily.
Stir in the mashed banana.
Spray a medium-sized pan with cooking spray and set heat to low-medium. Using a lower heat is important because if you cook with high heat you may burn the pancake.
Pour in pancake batter and cook until little bubbles form (about 5 minutes). Carefully flip the pancake over to the other side.
To know when your pancake is done, just stick a toothpick into the center of the pancake. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the pan. If it comes out clean, your pancake is done! It typically takes another 2 to 3 minutes.
Place the pancake on a plate and add your favorite toppings!
