Banana Protein Pancakes

As my clients would begin working with me and focusing on high-protein breakfasts I would hear similar complaints.

”Sometimes you just want that nostalgic breakfast, waffles or pancakes.” 

Hey, I’m human too, and totally get it. I headed straight to my kitchen a started dreaming with ingredients I knew were iconic to make a pancake work, but when I stepped back there wasn’t enough protein or fiber. So we worked through many iterations of this recipe until we had it perfect. 

Why This Recipe Works for Blood Sugar Balance

Increasing the eggs in this recipe helps to increase the protein content. The protein content is also increased by adding collagen peptides and using a flour that has more protein than traditional wheat flour (thank you almonds). 

Using fruit as the base instead of large amounts of flour offered some fiber, natural sweetness, and micronutrients that are beneficial for overall health and blood sugar regulation. Did you know one banana has nearly 10% of the daily recommended value for magnesium? 

We have also added cinnamon which is a spice known for helping regulate blood sugar balance. 

Why This Recipe Works in Your Kitchen

This is super quick to make in a blender. However, you do not need to use a blender if you don’t have one, just make sure to pre-mash your banana well. These pancakes can stick to pans if they are not well-greased, so be sure not to skip that step.
