  • 1 cup rolled oats uncooked
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 free range or organic eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil for cooking
  • sliced banana for garnish
  • pure maple syrup for serving


  • In a blender, add all the ingredients except for the coconut oil.
  • Blend this until very smooth.
  • To cook these banana protein pancakes, heat a skillet or griddle over medium to medium-high heat and melt a little coconut oil. You could also use some organic, grass-fed butter.
  • Once the oil is melted, pour about 1/3 of a cup of the batter onto the hot griddle. This will make approximately 4 in pancakes, which is what we prefer in our house.
  • Cook the pancake for 2-4 minutes, until the edges begin to turn from a shiny to a dull and bubbles appear in the centre of that pancake.
  • Flip using a spatula and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • To serve, you can top with some fresh sliced bananas and drizzle with pure maple syrup.


Fresh fruit, maple syrup, natural yoghurt, honey…. plenty of ways to create a topping that are healthy and tasty too. Find alternatives using chocolate or sweet potatoes: More protein pancake ideas
