Protein pancakes are not just popular among fitness enthusiasts but also among those who love a nutritious, filling, and yummy start to their day. Here, we’re going to introduce you to a recipe for protein pancakes that’s not only easy to make but is also packed with all the goodness you need to get going in the morning. The ingredients for this recipe are easily accessible in Germany, so you don’t have to worry about finding them.
- 80 grams of oat flour (Hafermehl). You can easily make this at home by grinding oats in a blender or food processor.
- 1 scoop (approx. 30 grams) of your favorite protein powder. This could be whey, casein, or a plant-based alternative.
- 2 eggs
- 1 ripe banana
- 120 ml of low-fat milk (or almond milk for a dairy-free alternative)
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder (Backpulver)
- A pinch of salt
- Cooking spray or coconut oil for greasing
- Your favorite toppings: This could be fresh fruits, yogurt, a dollop of peanut butter, honey, or a sprinkle of chia seeds or flax seeds.
- Start by mashing the ripe banana in a large mixing bowl until it reaches a smooth consistency.
- Add the two eggs to the mashed banana and whisk them together until well combined.
- Add the oat flour, protein powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Mix until all the dry ingredients are well incorporated with the wet ingredients.
- Gradually add the milk to the batter while stirring continuously to ensure a smooth and lump-free batter.
- Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes. This allows the oat flour to soak up the liquid and helps in getting a fluffier pancake.
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and lightly grease it with cooking spray or a little coconut oil.
- Pour about a 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan for each pancake. You should hear a slight sizzle if the pan is hot enough.
- Cook until you see bubbles form on the surface of the pancake (usually takes about 2-3 minutes), then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
- Repeat this process until you’ve used up all the batter.
- Once your pancakes are ready, top them with your favorite toppings and enjoy a protein-packed, delicious breakfast.
