These are named after my AWESOME trainer, Anna (yes, I call her Anna Banana), since she gave me the recipe. These are very similar to the Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes but MUCH easier to make! We will sometimes make the batter the night before because we are so hungry when we wake up that we need something to eat right away!
1 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
12 egg whites
1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese (we use Friendship brand, no salt added)
2 small bananas or 1 large banana
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon (optional)
Maple syrup - THE REAL STUFF! (topping - optional)
1. Combine all ingredients into a blender (as shown below).
2. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat with a light coat of cooking oil (canola or coconut). Pour about 1/4 c of batter for each pancake. Cook on one side until bubbles appear on top, then flip to cook the other side, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat until all batter has been used.
Note - The pancakes may be dark brown, but don't worry, it's just the sugars in the banana...they won't taste burned.
Makes 4 servings ~ approx 12 pancakes (Scott & I will sometimes eat them all if we are going to be working out hard in the gym). The number of pancakes will vary, they just depend on how large you make them.
Macros (per serving - does not include syrup)
He & She Tip: If your batter seems too runny you can add a Tbsp of oat flour. You can also tailor this recipe to suit your needs (less oats, no walnuts, etc).
Play around with the ingredients & let us know if you come up with a good variation! Enjoy!
