High Protein Banana Pancakes
- Heat a flat bottom stove top pan to medium low heat.
- While the pan is heating, peel your banana, cut it into large chunks, then using a fork smash the banana in the large bowl. Smash until the banana is creamy and you have removed most of the chunks.
- Next add the pancake mix and water to your bowl with the banana. Stir together until well combined. There will be some lumps from the banana and that is ok. Allow the batter to rest for about 5 minutes.
- Prepare you pan with a little non stick spray. Then pour the batter into small circles on your pan, using about ¼ cup of your pancake batter per pancake.I actually used a measuring cup to ensure the pancakes were all the same size.
- Now, leave the pancakes alone. Cooking on medium low heat until you start to see bubbles on the top of the pancakes. Once you see 5-10 bubbles flip the pancakes. This will take 3-5 minutes.The more bubbles, the fluffier the pancakes will be. However, you will want to ensure that you don't burn the other side while waiting for the bubbles to form.
- Once you have flipped the pancakes allow them to cook for another minute or so. The second side of the pancakes is a faster cook than the initial side.
- Remove from the pan and serve with your favorite syrup and other toppings of your choice.
