  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder

  • 1 tbsp honey

Cream cheese frosting;

  • 2 tbsp low fat cream cheese

  1. Place all pancake ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

  4. While pancakes are cooking, place all cream cheese frosting ingredients into a small bowl and mix well until its combined. Set aside.
  5. Once pancakes are cooked, serve with a nice drizzle of the frosting. I like to add a drizzle of maple syrup and some crushed walnuts too! Enjoy!
