Kid Approved Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

April 25, 2016

I love to cook breakfast! I’ve become a master of it. My family loves my Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes. When I was a working mom I was only able to cook a good fulfilling breakfast on the weekend but now that I am a SAHM I get to cook for my family every morning. Since I’ve had my daughter in January I have been on a mission to eat healthier and I am taking my family along with me on the journey. I had to find an alternative to my famous pancakes so I scoured Pinterest for some protein pancakes and added a bit of a twist. The additional positives to these protein pancakes is they are quick to make, less of a mess, it is easier to scale the recipe for your servings,  and my toddler doesn’t eat meat so this is a great way for him to get good protein.


1 egg

1 banana

1/2 scoop of protein powder

chocolate chips to your liking

4 servings



  1. Start by mashing banana in a bowl with a fork. Once mashed, add in egg and mix,  add in vanilla protein powder and stir until mixed well. Then add the chocolate chips and mix in the batter.
  2. Heat griddle or frying pan over low-medium heat. Once warm, spray with cooking spray and pour  1/4 cup of batter on pan. After about 4 minutes, or when bottom of pancake is firm or lightly browned, flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes. (Batter will not bubble like a typical pancake, so watch closely!)
