Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes
Okay, I did it. I went to a hot yoga class.
Some context: I’m trying to be healthier. I’m trying to get more fruits and veggies in my diet, trying to exercise more often and in different ways. So when this coupon popped into my inbox for hot yoga classes, I bought it.
And then I realized just buying it doesn’t actually do anything. You actually have to go to the class or whatever. Oh.
But yesterday, after hemming and hawing about it for days on Facebook, I finally did it! (My Facebook friends will probably be relieved to hear this news. Or they will not care at all, just like they didn’t care about my 800 anxious yoga posts, and could I please stop talking about yoga already, and also who am I? Did we go to high school together or something? Ah, Facebook.) Anyway, I don’t even really get what I did, but I did it! Here’s how it went down:
I got there super early so I could ask a billion questions and scope out the space. This was a good idea, because otherwise I might’ve missed the cubbies and the posted expectations (for instance, no talking in the yoga room). Two girls apparently had this exact problem, since they conducted a loud conversation right behind someone who was clearly trying to zen out. Gauche, ladies. Real gauche. (Read this as: I had to find some way to feel superior, since I was about to discover my very limited talents in plenty of other areas. Like bending and flexing and . . . breathing.)
Thankfully, my friends had coached me to buy a hot yoga towel. I saw other folks using regular towels and that probably would’ve been okay, but hot yoga towels are designed specifically to get more grippy when they’re wet instead of less. Nobody wants to fall on their face in the middle of their first hot yoga class.
I was also glad I brought a hand towel, because dripping all over the place during a camel pose or a wombat pose or whatever (I’m making all of this up. I have no idea.) gets distracting.
Once I was finally settled into the room for class (with my hot yoga towel covering my mat and my giant water bottle by my side) I got the impression that it wasn’t going to be as tropical as I had imagined. It was actually pretty relaxing, loungin’ in Shavasana, centering my awareness or dreaming about lunch or whatever I was doing. But (you might already guess what’s coming) that all changed once we actually had to move.
I started with the beginner class, but oh man. Holding chair pose (that’s probably not its real name) with no actual chair in the vicinity and no indication of when couch potato pose or dessert pose or something more palatable might be coming? All while perspiring profusely? Turns out that’s hard.
I at least attempted every pose (and only almost fell into my neighbor once.) And you know, I’m not sure what hot yoga is even for, exactly — why doesn’t someone open a window, again? what does emulating a rocking horse do for me? — but it was a nice experience! I felt rejuvenated and strong and more . . . bendy.
I don’t believe in “releasing toxins” besides what my liver and kidneys already do, but my skin did look all glowy and nice afterward, so that’s cool. But my most important accomplishment was challenging my body. And not challenging it like I do with the intensity of a frenetic Zumba class, which I also love, but in the strange, comforting, peaceful way yoga does. And in a really hot room.
So there you have it: my hot yoga experience! Have you ever tried it? Tell me all about it. What’d you think?
And while I’m sharing that part of my health journey, here’s another: a super quick and healthy snack that takes just a few ingredients to prepare. You can actually make these Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes with just a banana and eggs, but I used Our Best Bites’ adaptation of adding baking powder. I also added some whey protein just to pump up the health factor a little more. They’re not exactly like real pancakes — they’re more crêpey — but they’re a healthier everyday option.
If you’re looking for other healthy pancake options in addition to these Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes, also check out my Five-Ingredient Pumpkin Protein Pancakes that are low-carb, gluten free, refined sugar free, and delicious. Enjoy!

- 1 large banana (it should yield about 1/3 - 1/2 cup, mashed)
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional but recommended)
- 2 tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder (optional; you can also add a touch of vanilla extract instead)
- Place a medium skillet over medium heat on the stove. Let it heat up while you prepare the pancakes. It's ready when water dropped into the pan sizzles.
- To prepare the pancakes, mash the banana well with a couple of forks. Add the eggs, baking powder, and protein powder (if using) and whisk until well combined. Spray the skillet with nonstick cooking spray before adding in 2-3 tablespoons of the pancake mixture (I used a sprayed metal ring to make mine so round -- if you don't want to bother, they'll just be a little wonky shaped.)
- Let the pancakes cook for 25-30 seconds before flipping and letting the other side cook for the same amount of time. Remove to a plate and serve with nut butter, sugar-free syrup, butter, fruit, or whatever you'd like!

Oh this is hilarious! I have never enjoyed yoga. My friend thinks I should try hot yoga but I keep avoiding it. Chair pose is hard enough in an air conditioned room!However, you did give me an idea. One of the reasons I don’t like yoga is that my hands sweat and things start slipping. Maybe I need a hot yoga mat.
JessaJanuary 17, 2016 at 2:14 pm (7 years ago)
Your post made me chuckle. I also hate regular yoga, but I was convinced to try hot yoga (which I wasn’t keen on at all, but it was a boy I liked lol. Anyway, now I love it. The yoga towel over the mat makes 100% difference. Make sure its not a regular towel they stretch and are a nightmare.
Sandy JMay 9, 2017 at 9:42 am (6 years ago)
ok where is the flour
Julie RubleMay 10, 2017 at 1:11 pm (6 years ago)
This recipe doesn’t use flour.
StacyJune 12, 2017 at 12:26 am (6 years ago)
Could I use a plant based protein powder instead of a whey based protein powder? Will it change consistency?
Julie RubleJune 12, 2017 at 12:28 am (6 years ago)
I haven’t tried it but I think it will work fine!
Kristen OnealJanuary 20, 2015 at 7:08 pm (8 years ago)
I just started working out again this week and tried a version of this recipe I found on another blog minus the protein powder which was a huge mistake because I was so hungry afterwards : ) Gotta get me some protein powder.
Julie RubleJanuary 20, 2015 at 7:11 pm (8 years ago)
Yes!! And a schmear of nut butter 🙂

EmilyJanuary 20, 2015 at 10:29 pm (8 years ago)
Count me in for pancakes, count me out for hot yoga. Ha! I’m pretty sure I would pass out. I do believe in the toxin release- but I would rather relax in a sauna or get a wrap at the spa!
Kelly @ TastingPageJanuary 21, 2015 at 1:35 am (8 years ago)
I’m in for yoga and these pancakes. Thanks for sharing!
LizJanuary 21, 2015 at 6:55 am (8 years ago)
I am way too unbendy and uncoordinated to have jumped into a hot yoga class where everyone knew what was going on except me. Brava! Thank goodness I started when my instructor was just learning herself. Now I need to figure out why we never do the couch potato pose–I think I could master that in an instant. But first I need some pancakes!
Taylor @ Food Faith FitnessJanuary 21, 2015 at 7:40 am (8 years ago)
Pancakes are my absolute fav! Especially when they’re protein packed…I can’t wait to try these! Pinned!
KristenJanuary 21, 2015 at 7:57 am (8 years ago)
That’s awesome that you tried something out of your comfort zone! I’ve been trying some new classes too and although its freaky at first, it’s fun! These sound quick and easy and I love the idea of adding the protien powder so you can stay full longer. Great idea!
amanda @ fake gingerJanuary 21, 2015 at 9:20 am (8 years ago)
I would love to try hot yoga but I have so much anxiety about any kind of group exercise class. Gahhhh. I’m going to use you as inspiration though and if a Groupon comes through my inbox, I’m going for it.
Love these! I’ve been just doing banana + egg pancakes but I bet the vanilla protein powder made them extra delicious!
BessbestMarch 4, 2015 at 11:05 pm (8 years ago)
Just go for it and do it. Hot yoga is the best. I love Hot yoga.
Joanie @ ZagLeftJanuary 21, 2015 at 9:58 am (8 years ago)
I love a good pancake recipe and I’ll have to try these.
I also love yoga but only the more relaxing and non sweaty kind. I’ve never tried hot yoga, maybe if a coupon comes through my inbox, I just might.
heather @french pressJanuary 21, 2015 at 10:31 am (8 years ago)
I am definitely NOT a hot yoga person, but man I do love pancakes!
GiGi EatsJanuary 21, 2015 at 6:23 pm (8 years ago)
MMMMM! The less ingredients the better! I probably wouldn’t even use a banana in this recipe! 🙂
SO GOOD – makes me wanna make em for dinner!
BriMarch 5, 2015 at 10:13 am (8 years ago)
But…bananas are the main ingredient lol.
MichJanuary 28, 2016 at 10:47 pm (7 years ago)
Right!! Otherwise she’s frying an egg. Period 😉
ChristineNovember 13, 2018 at 6:02 am (4 years ago)
What about rep,acing with pumpkin??
Julie RubleNovember 13, 2018 at 10:49 am (4 years ago)
Yep, works great! http://willowbirdbaking.com/2016/01/24/five-ingredient-pumpkin-protein-pancakes-low-carb-gluten-free-refined-sugar-free/
Meg @ The Housewife in Training FilesJanuary 21, 2015 at 9:13 pm (8 years ago)
I just went to my first hot yoga class tonight and actually loved it! Good for you for trying to get into it more! Its definitely a love hate relationship…unlike these pancakes! I make my hubby the 2 ingredient pancake so I can’t wait to try this one!
JoannaJanuary 22, 2015 at 11:50 pm (8 years ago)
Can’t wait to click on your slideshow of simple, healthy meals. Thanks for sharing! When I share your lovely food, people always ask for a copy of the recipe 🙂
ChristieJanuary 23, 2015 at 8:35 am (8 years ago)
Love the added protein in these, plus they are so simple.
Amy | Club NarwhalJanuary 23, 2015 at 1:20 pm (8 years ago)
This is amazing! Hot yoga has always instilled fear in my heart because humidity is my arch enemy. But maybe I will brave it, if only to get out of the winter cold 🙂 Also, these protein pancakes are winning on every level!
TheteachercooksMarch 1, 2015 at 9:35 pm (8 years ago)
Christin@SpicySouthernKitchenMarch 8, 2015 at 12:29 pm (8 years ago)
Pancakes are my favorite breakfast and I love starting my day with protein. Can’t wait to try these! I fell in love with yoga a few years ago after spending years thinking I would hate it. I’ve never done a hot yoga class, but have been trying to work up the courage to give it a try. I don’t do well with heat and I’m so worried that I will pass out!
ValerieMarch 8, 2015 at 12:30 pm (8 years ago)
I can’t wait to make these, my boys will gobble them up. I like to make big batches of pancakes and freeze them and these look they’ll work great for that.
Patricia RussoMarch 11, 2015 at 7:45 pm (8 years ago)
My husband and I are health conscious so can’t wait to try your protein pancakes. I love the versatility of the recipe and will make a batch soon. Thanks for sharing this new version of pancakes with us. Patricia Russo
Rosemarie GronerApril 27, 2015 at 8:39 pm (8 years ago)
I came for the pancake recipe and then spent the next 10 minutes cracking up over hot yoga. Loved it!
MeaghanMay 4, 2015 at 12:19 pm (8 years ago)
great recipe! I added 1T of coconut flour to thicken the batter up a tinsy bit and blueberries for fun 🙂 I can
Honestly say that I won’t be missing the real deal. These are amazing AND I don’t have to feel like I “cheated” after having them! Thank u for this recipe!
KristinaJune 28, 2015 at 8:54 pm (8 years ago)
could you freeze these after making them?
Julie RubleJune 28, 2015 at 9:32 pm (8 years ago)
Kristina, I haven’t tried it so I can’t vouch for it. If I froze them, I’d wrap them well individually and then thaw overnight in the fridge and warm up just a few seconds in the microwave to avoid a rubbery texture. Enjoy!
DebbieJuly 11, 2015 at 6:25 pm (8 years ago)
I’m STILL LAUGHING about the yoga!!!! My daughter has taught hot yoga for several years and loves it.
I have ZERO coordination and I can’t concentrate on a pose AND my breathing at the same time!!!
I cannot wait to try these pancakes, they sound yummy
JaneJuly 27, 2015 at 7:48 pm (8 years ago)
Do you approximately how many grams of protein are in a pancake?
Julie RubleJuly 27, 2015 at 8:50 pm (8 years ago)
Sorry, Jane, I’m not sure! I always use SparkPeople’s recipe nutrition calculator for these sorts of questions, but it will depend on what sort of protein powder you choose.
kristenJuly 29, 2015 at 11:30 pm (8 years ago)
Have you ever used an egg replacer in this recipe? I wonder how it would fare?
Julie RubleAugust 3, 2015 at 10:22 am (8 years ago)
Hi Kristen! I haven’t tried it and my hunch is that it wouldn’t work, since the egg is the main and only binder here, but you never know!
RachelAugust 20, 2015 at 9:24 pm (8 years ago)
I have tried a few healthy protein pancake recipes and they’ve all been pretty gross but these are truly DELICIOUS and sooo easy! I added some berries to mine and topped them with strawberries and rice malt syrup 🙂
AmandaAugust 27, 2015 at 11:19 am (8 years ago)
These are delicious. I was naughty and added chocolate chips. In hindsight, I also would have included a dash of salt.
NicoleSeptember 23, 2015 at 2:33 pm (8 years ago)
Do you think this would work with a pea/ vegan protein powder? I am allergic to whey
Julie RubleSeptember 24, 2015 at 6:52 pm (7 years ago)
Yes, I think so!
RachelOctober 28, 2015 at 4:54 pm (7 years ago)
These pancakes sound so yummy! And I just bought a new brand of protein which is super delicious so I am really excited to try these out!
Do you think you could sub one of the whole eggs, say for 2-3 egg whites instead. Or would that be too runny?
Also could you blend all the ingredients as opposed to mashing and whisking (lazy chef life lol).
Julie RubleDecember 10, 2015 at 8:55 pm (7 years ago)
I haven’t tried these adaptations, so I’m not sure, Rachel! If you try them, let me know.
MiniqueDecember 10, 2015 at 8:42 pm (7 years ago)
These turned out extremely watery for me. Too bad. ):
Julie RubleDecember 10, 2015 at 8:56 pm (7 years ago)
That is too bad! Sorry that happened, Minique — it hasn’t happened to me and I’m not sure what the issue could’ve been. Was the mixture well combined? Was the skillet hot enough?
SharonDecember 19, 2015 at 7:44 am (7 years ago)
Morning! Can you use egg whites instead and do you know the weight measurement of the banana (estimate)? TIA
ChelseaJanuary 6, 2016 at 3:21 pm (7 years ago)
Yours look WAYYYY better than mine…
Julie RubleJanuary 6, 2016 at 3:32 pm (7 years ago)
They probably won’t be particularly pretty and round and less you use a sprayed metal cookie cutter or something to cook them in. I used a metal ring.
Alyssa AndrusJanuary 9, 2016 at 7:25 pm (7 years ago)
Is anyone familiar with food tracking on the app my fitness app? I’m having a hard time figuring out how to add these pancakes into Mt my app. Also, I made my pancakes in bulk, I made 50 of them and froze them so they could be a quick and easy source of protien as I’m headed to work. Just need to figure out how to get it put in my fitness app! Thanks for any help! Much appreciated
AngelaJanuary 13, 2016 at 5:29 pm (7 years ago)
Hi! To add the recipe in MFP, just click on FOOD in the lighter blue bar toward the top of the page, then click on Recipes in the darker blue bar. Then you’ll see where you can import the recipe, add it manually or use the old recipe calculator (on the right of the page). Hope that helps. Good luck!
Jennifer R GarciaJuly 19, 2021 at 11:01 am (2 years ago)
I want to make them for my son who is in college how do you freeze them? Wrapped in plastic? Individually? How long do they last?
StephanieJanuary 10, 2016 at 8:33 am (7 years ago)
I make a version of these weekly and my girls love them! I have not tried protein powder but I use a a bit of old fashioned oats to add bulk to fill u up a bit more. And a bit of honey. No syrup needed for these! I’ll be adding protein powder next time for sure!!!
M.January 11, 2016 at 1:55 pm (7 years ago)
I found they burn easy, but taste AMAZING!
KudziJanuary 25, 2016 at 2:30 am (7 years ago)
I love these pancakes. They’re super delicious. I was a bit skeptical of the protein powder (I’ve never cooked with one) but they turned out really well.
DawnJanuary 31, 2016 at 5:46 am (7 years ago)
Hi, I love this recipe. Have you ever made a batch and reheated the next day? I was thinking of making some & taking to work & heat in the microwave for my breakfast. Kind regards
Julie RubleJanuary 31, 2016 at 10:15 am (7 years ago)
I’ve never tried it, but my suspicion is that it would be soggy upon reheating because it’s primarily composed of egg. If I tried it, I would freeze them and then reheat. Let us know if you try it.
TsvetiFebruary 11, 2016 at 4:19 am (7 years ago)
Hi there! Is that a real picture of the pancakes?
Julie RubleFebruary 11, 2016 at 5:35 am (7 years ago)
Yes. I edit for things like brightness and white balance, but all my photos are representative. I’m also very careful in preparation to ensure things look nice — hence cooking these in a ring to attain a round shape.
TsvetiFebruary 11, 2016 at 6:03 am (7 years ago)
I can’t believe they look so amazing and fluffy!
Julie RubleFebruary 11, 2016 at 10:30 am (7 years ago)
Baking powder and a macro lens 🙂
RobinFebruary 15, 2016 at 6:23 pm (7 years ago)
I just made them and were great. Added a small pinch of salt. Of course butter and Maple syrup. Will make a lot now!
LisaFebruary 18, 2016 at 2:57 pm (7 years ago)
I am allergic to bananas. Can you use something else in there place?
Julie RubleFebruary 18, 2016 at 3:02 pm (7 years ago)
Yes! These work great with pumpkin. Here’s the recipe: http://willowbirdbaking.com/2016/01/24/five-ingredient-pumpkin-protein-pancakes-low-carb-gluten-free-refined-sugar-free/
KelseyFebruary 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm (7 years ago)
How many pancakes per serving?
Julie RubleFebruary 19, 2016 at 9:17 pm (7 years ago)
For ease, I give the calories per pancake so you can choose your own serving size. Personally, I ate all 8.
Deidre FridolphMarch 1, 2016 at 9:22 am (7 years ago)
These pancakes were so simple to make and the most delicious!!! I usually use a ton of butter and syrup on my pancakes, but with this recipe I didn’t need either!! Also, they are so healthy. So happy I found a healthy alternative to regular pancakes. I will be using this recipe from now on. Thank you!!!????????
JenniferApril 15, 2016 at 10:03 am (7 years ago)
Unfortunately, these pancakes turned out really nasty 🙁
Julie RubleApril 15, 2016 at 10:06 am (7 years ago)
I’m sorry to hear that. They are enjoyed by my family and others, so do you think something could’ve gone wrong? I’m happy to help you troubleshoot the issue. I will say that with just a few flavors (banana, protein powder), you must like each one to enjoy these. For instance, someone who doesn’t like bananas might not enjoy the taste.
john ARENAMay 16, 2016 at 3:36 am (7 years ago)
no nutritional ?
Julie RubleJune 1, 2016 at 8:31 pm (7 years ago)
I developed this recipe and shared it with you for free, dear. You can do your own legwork.
JoSeptember 15, 2016 at 12:42 pm (7 years ago)
LOL – entitled blog perusers.
Julie RubleSeptember 15, 2016 at 12:53 pm (7 years ago)
I mean, right?! Sometimes I can’t believe.
SaraJune 1, 2016 at 8:23 pm (7 years ago)
Could I use a soy protein powder in this to replace they whey?
Julie RubleJune 1, 2016 at 8:31 pm (7 years ago)
AndreaJune 21, 2016 at 10:32 am (7 years ago)
These are our new favorite pancakes! My kids are super picky about pancakes, they do not like it when I make them with almond flour or other “healthy” ingredients, but they love these and request them often, for dinner too! Thank you!!
AshleighJune 30, 2016 at 7:47 pm (7 years ago)
I’m sure the macros would be fairly easy to calculate but has anyone already calculated them?
LiliJuly 16, 2016 at 12:01 pm (7 years ago)
The second time I made this (first time they were amazing), I used egg whites instead of eggs (I used 3 whites for the 2 eggs) and they turned out perfect!
JenSeptember 4, 2016 at 9:11 am (7 years ago)
These tasted great, but they were hard to flip! Still runny on the top and kind of fell apart. I didn’t use protein powder- would that help?
JoSeptember 15, 2016 at 12:44 pm (7 years ago)
I made these this morning and they were DELICIOUS. I had a hard time flipping them, so they came out funky-shaped, but I’m a notoriously poor pancake-flipper to begin with. Now I’m wondering how the batter would do in my waffle maker.. perhaps I will try tomorrow!
Biba MDecember 18, 2016 at 12:21 pm (6 years ago)
Taste is not bad, but basically I got scrambled eggs with banana with slight vanilla flavour.. Those are not pancakes, because there is nothing to hold it together, they fall apart as soon as you try to flip them. It looks like scrambled eggs, tastes like eggs with banana. Sorry…
Julie RubleDecember 18, 2016 at 3:13 pm (6 years ago)
Biba, they certainly taste different than regular pancakes, but I think if you’re getting “scrambled eggs with banana,” you might want to try mixing more. Hope that works out for you.
JamieJanuary 3, 2017 at 9:35 pm (6 years ago)
For the 2 tablespoons of whey, is that in proportion to the scooper? Or did you use a normal tablespoon? Did you level the scoop or compress it? Thank you
Julie RubleJanuary 3, 2017 at 9:51 pm (6 years ago)
I used a tablespoon and leveled.
MichelleJanuary 6, 2017 at 10:12 am (6 years ago)
I made these and they turned out really good. I used:
1 large banana medium ripe
Large handful of oatmeal
2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
Capfull of vanilla
Pinch of salt
2 shakes of cinnamon
Mixed ingredients w a fork
Sprayed pan w cooking spray
Made silver dollar sized pancakes
They flipped over easily … I Cooked about 45 min on each side.
MichelleJanuary 6, 2017 at 10:15 am (6 years ago)
Ayesha IsaacMay 21, 2017 at 9:35 am (6 years ago)
What is the nutritional info on these? How many grams of protein in each pancake and how many carbs? You only mentioned how many calories.
Julie RubleJune 12, 2017 at 12:28 am (6 years ago)
I’d use SparkNotes recipe nutrition calculator to find out this information.
DaemonJuly 24, 2017 at 5:45 pm (6 years ago)
Awesome recipe! They taste amazing. I do have one question though.
What’s the key for them to be easier to turn? My first couple of tries were rough… I mixed everthing very well… maybe I should leave the mix a little more thick so it won’t crumble? I used the same ingredients you put here except the whey.
I would appreciate your help 🙂
Julie RubleJuly 24, 2017 at 5:49 pm (6 years ago)
My best tip is to keep them small — mine are 3-inches in diameter, so the whole spatula fits underneath them. Then really let them cook on the first side until they are bubbly so that you assure the first side is pretty solidly cooked. Mixing them well is also key, so I wouldn’t try to leave it with chunks. I hope that helps! So glad you enjoyed them.
DaemonJuly 24, 2017 at 6:18 pm (6 years ago)
You’re right, I probably did mine too big, the spatula didn’t fit very well so it just crumbled. I’ll definitely try a smaller one next time.
Thanks for the tip!
samSeptember 14, 2017 at 9:59 pm (6 years ago)
How long will it last in the freezer as a meal prep?
Julie RubleSeptember 15, 2017 at 4:07 pm (6 years ago)
Unfortunately I don’t think these would freeze well. They’re very delicate.
AmberFebruary 9, 2018 at 8:45 pm (5 years ago)
Have you ever made the batter ahead of time and uses it later? I’m looking for something protein packed and filling to carry into a yurt and it would be nice to pre-mix everything and just put it in a poor container and carry it in 🙂
Julie RubleFebruary 11, 2018 at 4:07 pm (5 years ago)
I’ve never tried it so I’m not sure how it will work! If you do try, let us know how it goes!
KatieMarch 28, 2018 at 11:08 am (5 years ago)
Does anyone know the macros on these? If not, I can figure it out!! Thanks!
SairahMay 28, 2018 at 5:06 am (5 years ago)
I’m fasting this month so this is a great recipe for me. Any idea on how to thicken up the batter. Mine tasted good but were falling apart. Also, is it better to cook on medium heat? Thanks!
Julie RubleSeptember 17, 2018 at 2:59 pm (5 years ago)
That might work — I also keep them very small (3 inches diameter) so they’re easy to turn because the whole spatula fits under.
TerrySeptember 17, 2018 at 2:55 pm (5 years ago)
These were basically banana flavored scrambled eggs.
Julie RubleSeptember 17, 2018 at 2:59 pm (5 years ago)
Sorry you felt that way. Glad plenty of people enjoy them.
DeniseOctober 31, 2018 at 10:01 am (4 years ago)
I just made these for dinner last night to fix a craving. I loved them! The texture is surprisingly perfect. I used protein powder, and can’t imagine how they’d turn out without it. With it, they were perfect! I need to go buy more bananas and let them get super ripe so I can do it again! (Confession: I ate them all myself. )
KellyDecember 4, 2018 at 9:12 am (4 years ago)
The ripeness of the bananas could be the issue for some people. I think the more ripe the banana, the less resistant starch it has to hold the pancake together.
MadisonFebruary 8, 2019 at 9:15 pm (4 years ago)
Bananas are not low carb just for anyone on an Atkins diet
Julie RubleFebruary 8, 2019 at 9:52 pm (4 years ago)
People count their total number of net carbs, and “low-carb” is relative depending on their needs.
ValerieMarch 31, 2021 at 11:03 am (2 years ago)
Next time I will use a mixer or blender to get them smoother. I did find the texture to be very eggy. Mainly I am looking for high protein breakfasts so want to give these another try. This is the nutrition information, thought I would share since others also asked about it. 341 calories 33 g carbs 11 g fat 32 g protein 18 g sugar
StacyOctober 3, 2022 at 12:55 pm (6 months ago)
Thank you, undoubtedly this is the best recipe. It’s quick and easy to make and my family loved it. Thanks for the recipe.
