Gingerbread Protein Pancakes
Makes 1 serving
¼ cup quick oats
½ of a medium banana
1 serving protein powder (I used this)
1 tsp molasses, divided
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Puree until well mixed. Add 1-2 tbsp water for thinner batter.
Heat a nonstick skillet to medium high and spray with an oil spray.
Drop batter into heated pan in medium sized circles. Cook 2-3 minutes or until edges are crisp; flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
Top with remaining ½ tsp molasses, additional cinnamon, and sliced banana if desired.
