Three Ingredient Protein Pancakes!
So today is Shrove Tuesday..Derived from the word ‘shrive’ which means confess, Shrove Tuesday is a day people reflect on the areas of like in which they need to repent.
Over Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, people would give up fat, eggs, milk and sweet things as part of their fast so pancakes were a way of using up the leftovers in the cupboard you would not be using for the next 40 days and nights.
As you’ll know by now, we are big on promoting a well rounded diet that doesnt include overindulging too much so how about a little treat that doesnt include too much sugar and empty calories:
Three ingredient Protein Pancakes!
2 bananas, mashed
2 eggs, whisked
½ cup protein powder
1 tablespoon butter (or other oil like olive or coconut – to grease the pan)
Mix together bananas, eggs, and protein powder until well combined.
Place a pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with a bit of oil. Once pan is hot, add a large spoonful of the pancake mixture to the pan, about 3-5 inches wide.
Once the pancakes begin to bubble, flip them. Cook for about 1 minute each side, depending how hot the pan is.
Regrease the pan, as needed.
