3 different protein pancakes on plates, blueberries, banana, raspberry, yogurt and chocolate

This Tuesday is Pancake Day, and who doesn’t love a pancake??

So here are a few different pancake recipes for you to try…

 

Lean Mums Super Easy Pancakes

 

 

Just two ingredients to make these pancakes (banana and eggs), and even with the yoghurt and blueberries this recipe is only 355 calories.

 

Ingredients

1 banana

2 eggs

1 handful of blueberries

Serve with…

50g greek yoghurt (2 tablespoons)

1 teaspoon of honey (you might not need this much, just a drizzle)

 

Method

Peel a banana, chop up and add to a bowl

Mash up with a fork until it’s super mushy

Crack 2 eggs into a bowl and whisk with a fork until the yolk and whites are combined

Add to the banana and whisk together

Heat up a frying pan and add a little oil

The pan should be pretty hot, you want the mixture to sizzle when you add it

Pour your mixture into the pan using a tablespoon, you want to add 2 tablespoons worth of mixture for each pancake

Cook on one side for 1 minute before carefully turning with a spatula

Get your spatula under half of the pancake and carefully flip

Cook on the other side for another minute

Remove pancakes and keep cooking the rest of the mixture

This should make around 6-8 pancakes depending on how big you make them

Stack them up, drizzle over your honey, add your yoghurt and blueberries and devour!
