Breakfast is the first meal of the day and it should be celebrated but just not with too much sugar. A lot of people have been posting delicious pancake photos made from protein powder but unfortunately all I have seen contained egg replacer from a box or egg whites. The husband woke up extremely hungry so I decided I’d try to create something with protein powder and a banana. The result raved of the recipe and said there was only one thing to change (which I have corrected in the below recipe). So here’s something for you all to try, let me know how it works in your kitchen. Yum!*1/4 cup vegan protein powder (I used Raw Protein) *1 banana (mashed until smooth) *1 tsp almond extract *3 Tbsp flaxseed meal *1 Tbsp sugar or alternative *1/4 c oat flour (yea, that’s just ground oats) *1/4 c almond milk (or other nondairy milk) *3-4 strawberries, sliced
Mix all together and make just like traditional pancakes. Enjoy with or without maple syrup and vegan butter. DH found it just wasn’t necessary.
Note: These pancakes are a bit softer than traditional fluffy pancakes due to not having flour and egg. The moisture from the strawberries also makes these mouth-watering pancakes a bit less solid. So get your sturdy pancake flipper out and take it easy even though you may be tired when making these treats.
(Sorry about the terrible photo…)
