2 bananas, sliced
1 cup pancake mix
1 egg
1 cup protein powder (use vanilla or cinnamon flavoured)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk/ plant-based milk/ water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Do note that these pancakes are very dense due to the protein powder. I wouldn't recommend eating more than 2 pancakes per person.


1.Mix together the pancake mix, egg, protein powder, cocoa powder. Slowly add in the milk and stir until you get a smooth and thick mixture. It should be thick enough to coat your whisk and drip slowly. You may or may not use up all the milk to get that consistency.
2.Stir in half of the sliced bananas.
3.Heat up your pan and ladle in your pancakes according to the size that you prefer.
4.Once you see the bubbles formed and the pancake has gone matte, flip it over to cook the other side for another minute or two.
5.Placed the cooked pancakes on a plate, top it off with the other half of the sliced banana and drizzle some maple syrup. Enjoy!
The problem with a lot of breakfasts is that they’re very high in carbs and while that helps to give you the energy boost in the morning, it may not help you last that 4 to 5 hours before lunch. And who likes the sugar crash?
That is why I decided that while I wanted something sweet, I’m gonna add protein to my pancakes so that I will still feel full till lunch or even tea time!
Once again, my recipe below is not completely accurate because my pancake/waffle mix had ridiculous instructions (500g of waffle mix to how much water??? Who makes that much waffles at home?). Thus, please also use your wise judgement and adjust the amount of water accordingly.

If your cocoa powder is sweetened, you may want to lessen the amount used so that you don’t have a sugar bomb. Feel free to add in cinnamon powder or nutmeg if you want it to have a bit of spice!
