Low Carb, Low Fat, High Protein Pancake Recipe w/ no flour!

(Less than 250 calorie breakfast)

INGREDIENTS:

*1/4 cup egg white

*1/2 banana

*1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Body Fortress Super Whey Protein – Vanilla)

*2 tbs vanilla almond milk or skim milk

*1 tsp ground cinnamon

*1 tbs ground flax seed

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mash up your banana first, make sure it is quite ripe or else this could be hard…

2. Then add all the goods and mix it up!

3. Use a non stick pan and spray with cooking spray, put on low-medium heat

4. Dollop the batter onto your pan (I made mine in tablespoon portions so I could eat more mini pancakes)

5. Once it begins to bubble (took about 30 sec – 1 min), flip over and let sit for about another 20-30 sec.

6. Slide off of pan and enjoy! This makes exactly 1 serving. I got 9 mini pancakes out of this, each about 3.5” diameter.

TASTE:

I was seriously surprised at how easy this was to make. It also tasted like I was eating pancakes from a powdered mix. That sensation of eating bread was definitely there. You’ll love this. Top with sugar free jam and light butter if you’d like!

    love these pancakes! but my nutrition facts are way different than the ones listed. in case anyone made a recipe similar to mine, i will list them here :) i used 1 egg white, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop tera’s whey vanilla bourbon protein powder, 2 tbsp nonfat milk, 1 tsp cinnamon and omitted the flax. not sure how but my recipe has half the protein and less calories. weird! anyway:
    141 calories
    0.9g fat
    20.1 carbs
    3.3g fiber
    15.4g protein

  2. Oh my goodness, I have to share my moment of genius! I was trying to make these pancakes on the stove and was getting so discouraged, because they would either burn or not stay in the right shape or take forever to cook. Then I thought this would be so much easier if I could make them in the oven. I started looking through my cabinets and stumbled upon a nonstick donut pan. I greased the pan with coconut oil, poured the mixture into it, and stuck it in the toaster oven at 300 degrees for a few minutes. I would highly recommend this method. They made the cutest little donuts cooked to perfection!

  3. I love protein pancakes! I also recently made a fall inspired “pumpkin protein pancake” their so yummy and gluten free. I made a video on how to make them on my youtube channel if your interested:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6eLIAIcPrc&feature=share&list=UUZB32syI0FFtThd6xkPTRrg

  4. Ahhh mine fell apart!! I mean they were still delicious it was more of a blob than pancakes. I used 1 egg instead of egg whites, is that maybe why?

  5. Why are the egg yolks omitted? They’re the best part of the egg :(

  6. Is the taste, texture, etc. affected if I leave out the protein powder or is it just the protein content that changes? Would love to make these but am curious to know if they would taste the same without the protein powder! x

    • I imagine they wouldn’t work. The protein powder kind of acts like the flour. If you didn’t have it then they would pretty much be eggs with cinnamon.

  7. These turned out great though I had to add a bit more banana. The mix was very loose but once hitting the pan it would bind. Be sure your stove top isn’t too hot or else these burn easily!

  8. I used wheat germ instead of flax seed and they still tasted fantastic.

  9. These are very good! My recommendation: if you want something tiny pancake like, make your “dollop” a tablespoon. If you want something more crepe-like, use 1/4 cup for your dollop.

  10. Not just particularly for this recipe, but how do I know what kind of whey protein to buy?! I’ve recently been doing more weight/functional training in addition to my regular yoga practice/light cardio (gym machines) regimen. I’m trying to tone up a bit but all the reviews about whey protein have scared me! Any guidance?!

  11. these are SO good. I made mine with chocolate whey protein powder, so they were chocolate banana pancakes! looooove

  12. Hey i happen to be allergic to the one thing that you have in all of your pancakes….. BANANAS!!! & while i loath them i am not willing to die. So i was wondering if you had any recipes for pancakes without them and would they be gross or could i sub something else

    • Hi! Unsweetened applesauce is a great alternative to mashed bananas. I haven’t tried it in this recipe but I’m pretty sure it would work! Hope this helps!

      • Rebecca says:

        Heya, I sometimes use oats and put them through a blender which works as a great alternative and is super healthy without adding to the sugar content.

    • cooked sweet potatoes would be nice!

  13. I made these last night but with a chocolate protein mix and baked them in a muffin pan. Now the hubby has yummy breakfast snacks before he goes to PT on base!

  14. Angelina says:

    Just made these with a tablespoon of baking powder, chocolate protein instead of vanilla, and no milk- still delicious!!! Thank you for the awesome recipe.

  15. I made these this morning but added 2 teaspoons of unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder. So good! Adds about: 8 cal, 0.7 g fat, 2 g carb, 0.7 g protein.

    so are these really filling?

  17. Danielle says:

    I just made these for a late lunch / early dinner and they were fantastic! I feel so full and content. I used 1/2 c of blueberries instead of banana to sweeten them up. After I made the pancakes, I tossed the blueberries into the skillet with a tsp of light agave surup and then poured them on the pancakes–so YUMMY! thanks for posting!

  18. Sounds absolutely delish!

  19. Hi Cassey! About how many egg whites are actually in 1/4 of a cup? That’s been the only thing holding me back from trying this recipe!

  20. Excellent issues altogether, you simply received a brand new reader. What could you recommend in regards to your put up that you simply made some days in the past? Any sure?

  21. These pancakes are amazing! Love that this recipe uses no flour or sugar. Would like to try adding apple sauce, pumpkin, or more banana in place of the eggs next time to make them vegan as well :)

  22. I added a Lil baking powder to make them fluffy n they turned out great!! I wonder if we can use sugar free apple sauce instead of banana?? I may try that next time! :)

  23. Just had them for lunch and they were amazing! Felt like I was eating carbs!

  24. Zuzana Paar says:

    Love your charts and break down, will try it definately

  25. It looks a lot like Tone it up’s recipe … minus the blueberries

  26. I’m making these for dinner!! YUM!
