3 Ingredient Power Protein Pancakes

I am so excited for next week. It’s time for summer and we will be featuring some great burger recipes and even a recipe for potato chips in the coming weeks. But today, it’s time to highlight breakfast, and these protein pancakes have been a staple in my house the last few weeks as the temperatures have heated up.

At first glance (and the first time I threw them onto the griddle) I thought there was no way that they would turn out tasting decent.

They were delicious! The banana flavor isn’t overpowering and there is a distinct egg taste but nothing that turned me off to finishing the entire pancake.

In fact, I’ve had them two times this week on my strength training days and once on my run day. I added a little more granola and some fresh fruit on top to give me some extra carbs and calories for the long run ahead.

These three ingredient pancakes are simple to make and will keep you feeling satisfied until lunch time.
