Serves: serves 2
Ingredients
  • For the Pancakes
  • ½ cup egg beaters or other egg substitute
  • 1 ripe bananas
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ½ scoop protein powder (plain or vanilla)
  • For the Blueberry Topping
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries or other fruit
  • 1 tsp. sugar substitute
Directions
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend. (You can also just use a bowl and a fork to whisk it.) Drop by ¼ cup onto a hot, greased skillet. ( for additional flavour use coconut oil in the skillet) Cook on each side until lightly brown on each side. Makes about 4-6 pancakes.
  2. Place the frozen fruit in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the substitute sugar. Top your pancakes with a spoonful of blueberries.
Notes
You could use just eggs if you wish. Dark frozen cherries was very tasty with this recipe for the fruit topping.
