With peanut butter and chocolate chips and a little bit of maple syrup, which is just how I ate them growing up. Honestly, you couldn’t get me to eat them any other way, which was a problem when pancakes were for breakfast and we were out of chocolate chips or peanut butter.
Probably not the healthiest thing now that my metabolism has slowed, but I won’t lie. It still crave it on a regular basis.
Luckily there are so many recipes out there which let me adapt my favorite foods to something more healthy and suitable for my adult body and after some tweaking and combining of the information I found in my search to make these glorious pancakes I finally found something that REALLY tastes like my childhood favorite.
- 1 cup oats
- 1 banana
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- pinch of salt, pinch of cinnamon
- 1-2 scoops Iso-Gen Protein Powder
- 2 tablespoons flax meal
- Run everything through the blender on medium low speed until very well mixed.
- Heat a nonstick griddle to medium high heat. Add batter in small circles – about 1/4 cup per pancake. Sprinkle with blueberries or chocolate chips if you want. When the edges start to look dry (2-3 minutes), flip and cook another minute or two on the other side.
- Top with anything you like! I like syrup and peanut butter and chocolate chips.
