Protein Banana Pancakes (For One!)

This is probably one of my most favorite breakfast recipes. It's so easy, and beyond delicious, not to mention packed with protein! Like, yay! I feel like it's so hard to incorporate protein into our diets sometimes, especially with breakfast, considering most breakfasts are full of carbs. However, I have your saving grace.

Nutrition Facts:
This recipe is just one serving, however if you plan on eating something else (eggs, parfait... something a little filling) you could easily split this recipe between two people!
Calories: 320
Fat: 12 g.
Carbs: 30.5 g. with 15 g. being sugar
Protein: 28.3 g.

Cut 1 ripe banana into chunks. Throw into blender (I use a magic bullet to get a smooth consistency) with 1 whole egg and 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (I use EAS Whey Protein) and mix until smooth. If you see bubbles forming, stop. Heat skillet on low to medium heat with cooking spray, and pour desired amount into skillet (I like to keep mine smaller, so they're easier to flip). When you see the middle kind of rising up, like a bubble is underneath it, flip! This is usually 3-5 minutes for each side.
Repeat until you've used all your batter. Can top with fresh fruit and agave nectar, or eaten plain!

Another modification is that you can stir in fruits if you would like to add blueberries, strawberries, etc. Just don't blend them!
Banana Pancakes, 1/4 c. blueberries, 1/4 c. strawberries and green tea!

This breakfast is super easy, filling, and delicious. I love it so much, I'll make it after a workout sometimes! Please share with me your pancakes on Instagram or Twitter with #healthnutpancakes! Or email them to me! I would love to see your creations. 

Nom away!
