Breakfast is my favorite (and the most important) meal of the day. It jump starts your metabolism and gives you energy to tackle your day. I made a delicious protein packed breakfast on Sunday that left me full for several hours and completely satisfied.
Protein Packed Banana Pancake
2 whole whisked eggs
1 mashed banana
1 tablespoon (or more) flax seed
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice (optional)
What to do:
1. Add all the ingredients above in a medium sized mixing bowl and stir until combined.
2. Pour your batter into a greased pan and cook on medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until the bottom of the pancake is golden brown and it's easy to flip.
3. I was tempted to try to flip mine sooner than 8 minutes but trust me on this -- you want to make sure it's done enough or you'll end up with a crumbled mess!
4. Once you've flipped it cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes
I chose to top mine with a little butter. Peanut or almond butter, fresh fruit, nuts or coconut oil would be fantastic too. The options are endless!
