Gluten Free. Dairy Free. Low Carb. Soy Free.
If you are looking for a quick everyday breakfast that will satisfy both grown up and kiddo taste buds alike, try our Banana Protein Pancakes. These babies come together in just 10 minutes and allow you to get your pancake fix without all the sugar, carbs, and grains to slow down your day and your brain. One small serving of 2 pancakes is only 8.7 grams of carbs and 4.9 grams of sugar PLUS you get 9.6 grams of clean protein.
I love to have a small serving along side some organic chicken breakfast sausage and some steamed or sauteed greens or green juice for a complete, balanced breakfast. These taste great all by themselves or add some toppings to your liking - just make sure to keep fruit, honey and/or maple syrup to a small serving size as suggested below so that you don't get a sugar overload.

1/4 cup sliced banana

*Unripe or green bananas are an excellent form of resistant starch that helps to stabilize your blood sugar and prevent energy swings.
**You could also do chocolate protein powder and make chocolate banana pancakes. Make sure to choose a protein powder that is gluten, dairy, soy and GMO free. We recommend vegetable based protein powder. Learn more and see what brands we recommend on our blog post: How to Choose a Protein Powder.
