As most of you know I have a thing for pancakes. I am always looking to expand my creativity with what type of pancakes I can create next. It is amazing what a few ingredients blended together can create! These pancakes are perfect for post work outs. They are loaded with complex carbohydrates to replace those glycogen stores, protein to feed and build those muscles and essential minerals to aid in muscle energy. These pancakes are guilt free and will leave you feeling satisfied, healthy and energized! Enjoy!!
Ingredients (1 Serving: 4 Pancakes)
- 1/2 Cup Raw Oats (I use Trader Joes)
- 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (I use Siggi’s)
- 1 Large Banana
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 Egg
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- Splash of Cinnamon
- Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
Blend together using a Nutribullet (or any smoothie blender) oats, greek yogurt, 1/2 banana, almond milk, egg, vanilla and a splash of cinnamon. Let the ‘batter’ sit for about 5 minutes so the ingredients absorb and build a consistency.
Place a large pan or skillet on medium heat and coat the bottom with coconut oil. Once the coconut oil has fully melted poor 1/4 of the batter into the pan. Note: Poor this slowly to form a perfect circular shape.
Once the top surface of the pancakes has formed bubbles, it’s time to flip (2-3 min). After flipping, let cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Place on a plate and stack all 4!
Scoop 1 tablespoon of peanut butter into a bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 secs. Stir in tablespoon of maple syrup right away and blend together well.
Cut the 1/2 of the banana and top the pancakes with banana and peanut butter syrup.
Warning: These are heaven!! And don’t be embarrassed if you find yourself licking the plate afterwards! Dig in and enjoy!
