Gluten-Free Banana Protein Pancakes

Lately, I have been super into making my own pancakes on the weekends.  I LOVE pancakes, but typically steer away from them because of the processed flour.  However, I have been seeing tons of recipes for banana pancakes that are gluten free that I have been playing around with.  Add some protein powder and coconut flour, and you have yourself some delish gluten-free pancakes. ♥

Makes 4 medium sized pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 small bananas
  • 1 full egg & 2 egg whites
  • 3-4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons of protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) Coconut Milk (you can use water, milk, or almond milk if preferred)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (if you use a vanilla flavored protein powder, you can do without this)

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a food processor to blend to an even consistency.
  2. Spray pan with a light oil and heat.
  3. Pour batter onto pan in the size you want your pancakes and cook.
