Honey and Banana Protein Pancakes
Honey and Banana Protein Pancakes 🍌🍯
🤔 Why does this recipe recommend collagen powder and not protein powder ?
You can definitely work with either/or! 👨🏽🍳However, collagen is heat stable meaning it can withstand high temperatures - whey protein on the other hand.. not as much. As whey protein is heated it becomes less digestible and amino acids become less available.
🔍 Where do you find collagen powder ? Many health food stores online and in store sell a popular brand called @vitalproteins which is easily found - if in doubt, go online for a wide variety of options!
🥄 Yields - 6 large pancakes
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup milk of choice
- 1 large banana, roughly chopped
- 2 Tbsp. raw honey
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp. melted butter, ghee, or coconut oil (plus more for cooking)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 6 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 4 scoops Collagen Peptides (packed full of protein! 💪🏼)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. sea salt
Place all the ingredients in a large blender in the order listed so liquids are at the bottom. Blend on high speed for 30-60s or until the mix is smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Let the mix stand in the blender for 2-3 minutes to let the coconut flour thicken. Blend again on medium speed for 30 seconds to smooth it out again. The batter will be thick.
Heat a large pan over medium heat. Grease the pan and pour the batter out in pancake shapes. Smooth the batter out just a bit after pouring. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges begin to brown, then flip and cook the other side. Once done serve with any toppings you like... peanut butter of course is a no brainer. 😉🥜
