We have a long standing tradition in our house that every Sunday is pancakes for breakfast. It brings us all together in the kitchen and sets us up for a fun filled day. What I don’t love about Pancake Sundays is the very few basic ingredients that makeup traditional pancakes- until of course I created my own version. When my kids did eat basic pancakes made with white flour, sugar (!) milk and an egg, they were hungry again in no time due to the lack of protein or healthy fats, and we needed to make them yet another breakfast to keep them satisfied! Not to mention the little nutrient value the original pancakes provided….
These Banana Protein Pancakes are loaded with protein and carbs making them the perfect breakfast. Add some coconut yoghurt and you’re good to go- a breaky complete with all of the vital macros nutrients. Give them a go and let me know if your tribe love them too!
