Protein Banana Pancakes

I’d heard about this recipe but never tried it as I thought something so simple couldn’t be delicious… And I don’t waste my time on not-deliciousness.

Boy was I wrong.

Took 2 mins to prepare and literally 45 seconds to cook. Nutritionally (in my opinion) a fantastic post workout meal. And they taste amazing 🙂

Serves 2

What you need:
2 bananas
2 free range eggs
1/2 cup your preferred protein powder
Butter or coconut oil

What you do:
Mash banana with a fork. Add eggs, and protein. Heat butter or oil in a frypan. When it’s hot drop 3 tblspn and fry for about 20 seconds before flipping. They cook really fast so watch it doesn’t burn.

Enjoy on they’re own or with your favourite extras. I used full fat ricotta, strawberries and chia.

Try using cinnamon or raw cacao in the batter, also delicious.

Coconut Oil & Cacao Roasted Nuts

Add nutritional value and flavour to your favourite nuts with energy sustaining coconut oil and antioxidant rich cacao.

Choose your favourite raw nuts, mix with melted coconut oil, cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, shredded coconut and honey of stevia and bake for an hour at 140 degrees turning once or twice.

Ratio is 1:1 coconut oil & cacao. I used 3/4 cup of each with sweetener to taste for about 750 gm nuts. Added pepitas too – could use whatever 🙂
