Protein Banana Pancakes recipe

Healthy, Runner-Friendly Protein Banana Pancakes


These 6-ingredient protein banana pancakes are made with wholesome rolled oats, protein powder, eggs, and fruit. They are great to fuel your morning workouts or restore your energy levels after a run. And, of course, they are delicious!



1 ripe banana

4 tablespoons applesauce, unsweetened

2 eggs

¾ cup (60 g) rolled oats

3 tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder

1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, divided


  1. Place all the ingredients with 2 teaspoons of melted coconut oil into a blender and blitz until combined.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, add the remaining teaspoon of coconut oil. Coat the skillet with the oil using a heat-resistant pastry brush or paper towels. Flick a few drops of water on the skillet. If they bead up and sizzle, you are ready to cook the pancakes.
  3. Divide the batter so that you can cook two medium-sized pancakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings! These nourishing Banana Protein Pancakes are best fresh, but can be frozen and reheated as well.
