Healthy Protein Pancakes

(Original recipe makes 24 pancakes)

1/4 cup rolled oats, or more to taste

1 sweet potato, chopped

4 large eggs

1 banana

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder, or more to taste

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or as needed


1. Place rolled oats into a food processor and grind to flour. Place sweet potato into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain.

2. Blend sweet potato, eggs, banana, and milk in a blender until smooth; pour batter into a large bowl. Stir protein powder and ground oats into batter.

3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat. Drop batter, about 1/4 cup per pancake, into the skillet, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

What makes the recipe good for you

This recipe replaces sugar, butter, and wheat with sweet potatoes, bananas, eggs, milk, and oatmeal. The vanilla whey powder is used to boost protein, so people can eat some tasty pancakes while they try to stay in shape or bulk up. There are 1.4 grams of sugar and 1.6 grams of fat, so it is very low on both of these ingredients. If you need something to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can use pure maple syrup to sweeten it up. You can easily add fruits as well to add taste to your breakfast. This recipe is very healthy, especially when you add fruits to it.
