Gather your ingredients. You will need old-fashioned oats, 2 ripe bananas, 8 eggs, baking soda, vanilla protein powder, milk of choice, and blueberries. We love Pure Protein Vanilla Cream. We put it in smoothies all the time! It's delicious and you can find it at Walmart.
In a blender, add 2 cups oats, 2 ripe bananas, 4 eggs, 4 egg whites, and 1 teaspoon baking soda.
Next add 1 1/3 cups vanilla protein powder, and 1/2 cup milk. Blend until completely smooth. Pour in 1 cup of fresh blueberries and pulse just a few times to incorporate.
On a hot and lightly greased skillet, pour your pancake batter. Let them cook for a few minutes or until bubbles start forming.
Flip the pancakes and cook the other side until golden brown.
Serve immediately with hot pure maple syrup and some extra blueberries. It is such a delicious and protein packed breakfast. You will feel full of energy your entire morning!
I like to freeze any extras and eat them throughout the week. I just pop them in the toaster. The texture and flavor of these pancakes is amazing. You are going to love them!!!
