  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 65 g banana
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon oat flour or all-purpose flour


  • In a medium bowl, smash the bananas with a fork
  • Add the remaining of the ingredients and combine all ingredients until smooth
  • Heat a small nonstick pan over medium/low and coat with cooking spray.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan. Cook until bubbles break the surface of the pancakes, and the undersides are golden brown, about 1 minute. Flip with a spatula and cook about 1 minute more on the second side.
