Five Ingredient Protein Pancakes

Five-Ingredient Protein Pancakes

These little “pancakes” can be made with just two ingredients, (bananas and eggs) but I’ve added some baking powder and Shakeology to this recipe for a super quick and healthy breakfast or snack. They come out with almost a crêpe texture.  You can also ditch the Shakeology if you’re not looking to add more nutrients to yours. Each pancake is just around 30 calories!

Yields: 10: 3-inch pancakes


  •  1 large banana (it should yield about 1/3 – 1/2 cup, mashed)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional but recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla Shakeology


  1. Place a medium skillet over medium heat on the stove. Let it heat up while you prepare the pancakes. It’s ready when water dropped into the pan sizzles.
  2. To prepare the pancakes, mash the banana well with a couple of forks. Add the eggs, baking powder, cinnamon and Shakeology (if using) and whisk until well combined. Spray the skillet with nonstick cooking spray before adding in 2-3 tablespoons of the pancake mixture.
  3. Let the pancakes cook for 25-30 seconds before flipping and letting the other side cook for the same amount of time.
  4. Remove to a plate and serve with nut butter, sugar-free syrup, butter, fruit, or whatever you’d like!
