Banana Protein Pancakes

The first time I ever had banana pancakes was at 3AM in Bali, right before we climbed up the side of volcano in the dark to watch the sunrise from the top. Haha, true story! You can read about it here ---> Two Days in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia

I'm not exactly sure how they made those banana pancakes, but they were pretty tasty and had me wanting to make my own after that. I researched lots of recipes, pulled a little from one and a little from another, and crossed my fingers. 

They were really, really good. I love having them on FASTer Way Leg Days or Feast Days because I can splurge a little more on the maple syrup! Ok, maybe a lot :) 

Recipe for one big serving:

1 mashed banana (I did not mind having some lumps)
2 whisked eggs
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 vanilla
1 scoop protein powder - I use unflavored collagen peptides but Vega vanilla is really good too

Combine all ingredients.  The mix is very liquidity, but the protein powder can help thicken it up. I used approximately 2 tbsp scoops of batter to make smaller pancakes. It was pretty easy to flip them this way. They cooked just like regular pancakes, about 1 minute per side.

The first time I made them, I did not add the protein powder. Either way, they were really good. Almost as good as the ones in Bali, but I personally think they look a lot better!
