Strawberry Banana Pancakes

I don't know about you, but I love the classic combo of strawberry and banana.... So today I whipped up some healthy Strawberry Banana Pancakes! These pancakes are super fluffy, high in protein and pair great with a variety of toppings! These are so delicious, they're like eating desert for breakfast! You would never guess these are 100% clean! The taste sort of reminds of  strawberry birthday cake...Can you say yum?!

I was hoping the pancakes would turn out a pretty pink color, like the batter, but they turn a light golden brown once cooked.. :( But that's ok! They are still bursting with strawberry flavor!

Strawberry Banana Pancakes:
(Makes 1 serving)
  • 1/2 a mashed banana 
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 scoop Protein Powder (I use Perfect Fit)
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 Tbs. coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. stevia 
  • 2 Tbs. almond milk (add more if batter is too thick)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. I like to add a few ingredients at a time so the food processor isn't too full, but it's up to you. (so add fruit, blend, add eggs and protein, blend and so on.)
Spray a non stick pan with coconut oil cooking spray and cook on medium heat for a few minutes each side. I made five mini pancakes, but you could make them larger.

Nutrition Facts for JUST the pancakes (not including any toppings):
285 cals, 27 g protein, 43 g carbs, 3 g fat

Now time top them!!!!! I layered mine with the other half of my banana and Peanut Butter and Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter! Perfect combo! Quick tip: If you like your peanut butter extra gooey so you can drizzle it like icing, microwave it for 10 seconds!

Time to dig in! Enjoy!

These would also be great topped with extra fresh strawberries, a homemade strawberry compote, almond butter, walnuts... the options are endless! So have fun! If you make this recipe, post a picture on Instagram and tag me @beautyandbananas!
