Whole Wheat Protein Banana Pancakes

Mike Klein


I wanted pancakes with more protein and bran than most recipes. I adapted a couple of other recipes plus my own modifications to come up with this. The bananas add moisture and flavor. Surprisingly light and fluffy considering the use of whole wheat flour. Try not to overcook.

If you're looking for a healthy pancake recipe, look no further. Mike's pancakes are full of banana flavor. They remind us of banana bread. The protein powder adds a hint of vanilla. If you're looking to watch your waistline but still enjoy a delicious breakfast, these are a great alternative to regular pancakes. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
