Even when you’re on a diet, there’s one universal truth: Just about everyone loves pancakes. This recipe uses bananas as a base to provide a delicious, Paleo-friendly breakfast.

  • 1 large, ripe banana
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Fresh fruits (optional)

Lightly mash the banana with a fork. Add eggs, protein powder, baking powder, and cinnamon to the mashed bananas, and stir to combine. Fold in blueberries.

Pour about 2 tablespoons of the batter at a time onto a skillet greased with coconut oil. Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Flip with spatula and cook 1 minute on the other side.

Optional: top with fresh fruit or maple syrup.
