I tried these pancakes this week, and they were shockingly good. I addapted the recipe from this video.

I used a chocolate protein powder from Costco. The chocolate and the banana flavors were *chef’s kiss* sooo good!


  • 1 banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • Ground cinnamon (to taste)
  • Vanilla (to taste)
  • Zero-calorie sweetener (optional; 2 packets monk fruit sweetener recommended)


  1. Prepare Banana: Peal banana and mash it in a bowl with a fork. Can remain slightly clumpy, or can be mashed till smooth, according to preference.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: Add two eggs to the mashed banana; mix.
  3. Dry Ingredients: Incorporate baking powder, a pinch of salt, and two scoops (~60 grams) protein powder into the wet mixture. Stir until no dry spots remain.
  4. Seasoning: Add ground cinnamon, vanilla, and some zero-calorie sweetener, adjusting quantities to personal taste. Mix until well combined.
  5. Cooking Pancakes: Preheat a pan over medium-low heat and coat with zero-calorie cooking spray or a bit of olive oil. Pour batter slowly to form pancakes, cooking until bubbles form on the surface, then flip. Cook the second side briefly until done.
  6. Serving: Garnish with your choice of fruit and/or sugar-free syrup (I used this) before serving.

Enjoy a high-protein, low-fat breakfast option that fits both bulking and cutting phases. Feel free to get creative with toppings based on your dietary allowances and preferences.
