I admit it. I don’t always love eggs. So, when this whole eggs and banana make a pancake thing kind of makes me happy. The two ingredient pancake that’s floating around the internet, isn’t bad, but if you ask me these Banana Berry Protein Pancakes are better. You only need like 2 more ingredients for a pancake that is shall we say… more pancake-ey? They also pack 28 grams of protein so take that eggs!
The protein powder I use in these pancakes is the Tone it Up brand from Target. I find it to be super affordable compared to others I’ve tried and it’s very clean. If you really want to make sure these are gluten free pancakes, be sure to use a certified gluten free protein powder. Tone it Up is gluten free and vegan. If you aren’t into the whole protein powder thing, add in 1/4 cup of oat flour instead. I give you instructions to make your own in the recipe notes.
These Banana Berry Protein Pancakes do have a softer texture than other pancakes, but all that means is that you need less topping to make them delicious. I drizzle a tablespoon of almond butter on mine. You can also use maple syrup. Add tons of berries on top for texture and flavor.

Banana Berry Protein Pancakes
- 1 Banana ripened
- 1/4 cup Vanilla Protein Powder I use Tone It Up brand from Target.
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp. Egg Whites I use the ones in the carton for convenience.
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup Strawberries for topping
- 1/4 cup blueberries for topping
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter for drizzling
In a bowl mash the banana leaving just a few chunks for texture.
Add in the egg, egg whites, protein powder and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with coconut oil spray. When the skillet is hot drop the pancakes onto the skillet in 1/4 cup portions.
When the pancakes start to look done on the edges and bubble, flip them.
Top the finished pancakes with berries and a drizzle of almond butter or maple syrup.
Don't have protein powder? Add in a 1/4 cup of oat flour in place of the protein powder. To make your own oat flour just pulse regular oats in the food processor until they resemble flour. Subbing oat flour will change the protein and carbohydrate amounts in this recipe. The nutrition is calculated using the protein powder.
