I am a die-hard pancake lover. I prefer them to crepes and crave them on lazy Sundays. Sadly, my gym rat of a sister is on an all protein/low carb diet. In support of her valiant efforts to slim down on fat and bulk up on muscles I decided to try the famous banana protein pancakes that the internet has been all agog about.
This basically turned out to be a pretty good recipe. It required that I mash the banana with a fork, add a 1/4 tsp of baking powder and mix in an egg.
I pureed the banana and just mixed it all with a dash of vanilla extract. The vanilla added that sweet sugary flavour to the batter. Now the batter itself is more eggs than bananas because the eggs are what gives them shape, holding them together.
Taste wise, the pancakes are decent if you add a slab of butter and some maple syrup to them while they’re steaming hot. They are of course banana flavoured and you can tell the texture is different than that of original pancakes.
Nevertheless, they do make for a treat to anyone dieting and craving a sweet bite that is low on carbs and high in protein
