As we hunker down in the midst of winter, I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes for pancakes. These are easy to make with very little prep time and perfect for a post workout breakfast. They also make for tasty mid-day snacks.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup protein powder (I prefer a flavor like cinnamon bun or vanilla)
  • 2-3 TBSP of ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • Dash or two of cinnamon

InstructionsMash the banana in a small bowl and mix in the egg. Add dry ingredients and mix together for the batter. Feel free to add walnuts or a small amount of rolled oats to give it some texture. Cook on medium heat with coconut oil. Top with butter and honey/maple syrup or choice of sweetener. Makes three small pancakes. Enjoy!
