Low Carb High Protein Banana Pancakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Recipe by: Daily Dose Fitness & Coaching

http://dailydosefitness.com.au/2013/01/vanilla-blueberry-protein-pancakes/

Ingredients:

1 scoop vanilla whey (I used Gaspari Intrapro)
75g banana
2 egg whites
1 tbs golden flaxseed meal
1 tbs coconut oil
25g extra light cream cheese
Lemon juice
Vanilla stevia drops (optional)

Instructions:

Blend 3/4 of a scoop of protein powder (set 1/4 scoop aside) with the banana, egg whites, flaxseed meal and coconut oil in a food processor or with a handheld blender.

Heat a good quality, non-stick pan over a low-medium heat and using a 1/4 cup measure, spoon the mixture into the pan and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface. Flip onto the other side and cook for a further 45-60 seconds. This should make 3 small pancakes.

For the frosting, simply combine the cream cheese with 1/4 scoop of vanilla whey. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and a few drops of water to get it to a creamy consistency. If you need more sweetness, a few drops of vanilla stevia can be added or regular stevia for that matter.

And that’s it!!! Seriously, I will be eating these regularly for a very long time. Nom!

Serves one.
