Protein Pancakes Topped with Raspberries & Greek Yoghurt

Eaten your dinner but still fancying a bit of something sweet? These quick and easy protein pancakes are perfect to cure that sweet tooth.They’re healthy and eco-friendly too! What’s not to love?!

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cooking Time: 5 mins

Difficulty: Easy

Price: £

Serving Size: Two people.

Ingredients:

For the protein pancakes –

  • 1 Fair Trade banana
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (vanilla, chocolate or strawberry)
  • 1 medium free-range egg

Top tip: to make your pancakes even more sustainable, why not choose an eco-friendly protein powder? You could avoid whey and choose vegan protein, soy protein or organic sunflower protein.

Toppings –

I used…

  • 2 spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt
  • Half a tub of raspberries
  • Other ideas you might fancy: strawberries, honey, nuts, seeds, blueberries and banana.

Top tip: Why not choose fruit toppings that are in season? The strawberry British season starts in May…. you could try to grow your own or have a fun day out  strawberry picking (and eating a couple too)!
