Tropical Protein Pancakes
Coconut & Banana Pancakes with Pineapple Agave Syrup!
Why not bring the taste of a tropical island to your breakfast table? LOL
These pancakes are great fuel for a hard workout! I recommend eating them on hard training days. They are packed with good carbs for a lot of energy.
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1tsp baking powder
4T shredded unsweetened coconut
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1tsp agave nectar
Blend all pancake ingredients with a mixer or a blender. Heat griddle or skillet on medium to high heat. Cook like you would a normal pancake. :-)
For the syrup: Put ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until creamy-smooth. Heat in microwave for about 45 seconds - 1 minute. Serve over pancakes!
I put a few extra banana slices and shredded coconut on top. :-)
