Easy & Healthy Protein Pancakes


I've recently joined the Tone It Up team! You may have seen the wonderful Karena and Katrina on their show, Toned Up, on Bravo lately - the season finale is tonight. Tone It Up is a health/fitness community that provides workouts, recipes and support from other ladies all around the world!


I'm part of the "Members Only Group" because I purchased the nutrition plan that also comes with exclusive recipes and meal plans. I'm currently doing the 7 Day Slim Down to kick start my journey and one of the recipes for breakfast is the Perfect Fit Protein Pancake. Perfect Fit is a type of protein supplement with the Tone It Up brand, but I just use a soy protein that I got at the grocery store. 

I was a little skeptical when I saw the ingredients for this because they sounded a bit out of the ordinary, but it came out tasting great with some all natural maple syrup on top and fresh strawberries on the side. It's a great light breakfast or snack after a workout. Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!


Ingredients (serving size: 1 pancake)

4 teaspoons protein powder
1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 tablespoon almond milk
1/4 cup egg whites
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

- Mash banana and mix with almond milk until combined
- Add the rest of the ingredients and mix throughly
- Spray skillet or pan with cooking spray and slowly pour batter into pan
- Wait for 3-5 minutes, check the bottom of the pancake, then flip and cook for a few more minutes until it's cooked all the way through and both sides are golden brown

  6. I've tried this before but I didn't have vanilla protein so I used chocolate.. bad idea haha. It mentally just looked burnt to me, I think I need to retry it with the right color protein!
