Healthy protein pancakes recipe

IT'S PANCAKE DAY!!

Ignoring the fact that I have pancakes at least once every week or so anyway but didn't pull my finger out to get the ingredients ready for this morning's breakfast, I thought I'd share my* recipe with you all so you can enjoy them on my behalf.

They're so easy to make, taste UH-MAZING and if you have them for breakkie they'll keep you full 'til lunchtime.

GO GO GO!!

Preparation time – A couple of minutes 
Cooking time – 1-2 minutes per pancake (maybe not even that actually, I'm crap at timings. Keep an eye on them)

Ingredients (serves 2)

For the pancakes
– 2 eggs
– 1 scoop vanilla whey protein (optional)
– 1 banana, chopped
– 1-2 tbsp Total Greek yoghurt
– 1 tbsp peanut butter
– 1-2 heaped tbsp porridge oats
– Coconut oil (to fry them in)
For the topping
– 1-2 tbsp Total Greek yoghurt
– Raspberries and blueberries, banana and cinnamon, nuts and honey, basically anything you fancy (I have yet to try Nutella - maybe that's a job for tonight??)


Method

1. Crack eggs into a mixing bowl, add all ingredients for the pancake mix and whisk with a hand blender (or fork).
2. Add some coconut oil to a frying pan and pour some of the mixture out – about the size of shop-bought American-style pancakes.
3. Wait for it to cook on one side (don’t turn it over too quick as it’ll break and go all over the place).
4. When cooked on one side (after about 30 seconds), flip over and cook the other side.
5. Repeat for the rest of the mixture and stack pancakes on top of each other.
6. Leave some to cool for tomorrow’s breakfast or a snack for later.
7. Add a healthy dollop of Greek yoghurt, blueberries and raspberries, banana and cinnamon, or whatever you like on top. (As you can see I like to smother mine...)
