Eggs or pancakes? Oh, I’m totally an egg kinda gal.

Ordering pancakes at a restaurant is like eating dessert for brunch, not gonna happen, thus I usually stick with eggs for brunch because it’s a safer choice.

I won’t deny the fact that pancakes taste absolutely amazing when prepared with white flour and butter, they’re thick, soft and so fluffy, and while I’ll indulge in those sorts of pancakes at home on occasion, it’s not a daily option.

I recently started testing out an old recipe I wrote about a few years ago – High Protein Banana Bread Pancakes which incorporates egg whites, cottage cheese, oats and banana.

Before you start getting all wary about the cottage cheese, you won’t taste it at all, trust me, but it gives these pancakes texture and adds a whole lot of protein.

I decided to re-work this recipe and take better pictures since my old photos hardly did this recipe any justice.

The High Protein Banana Bread Pancakes have a whopping 30 grams of protein and are extremely filling. I ended up eating these pancakes for breakfast and then the remainder pancakes for lunch.

  1. im not much of a pancake person but i am sold on this one..i wonder if i can do waffles with these instead. love your step by step photo as usual dear 🙂

  2. I like pancakes, but they’re something I’m more inclined to eat for dinner rather than breakfast or brunch. Too filling. Good, though. And speaking of which — these look terrific! Good stuff — thanks.

    1. Oh for me pancakes are usually for brunch, too heavy for breakfast, too carby for dinner. This recipe is high in protein so I would do this. Thanks so much!

  3. Omg. Nahiiiii *in dramatic tone* I worked so hard to lose some of my babyfat and now this is horror. God save me.

    Btw, whichbrand oats and baking powder do you use? Told yea, my mom never used baking powder even for cakes. So I have no clue about it.

    1. This recipe is healthy, so don’t worry. I use either Trader Joe’s Baking Powder or Davis Baking Powder. There are only a few brands anyway, that won’t make a difference. For oats, I use Whole Foods Organic Oats, but again, you can use any old-fashioned oats and it should be good. Hope this helps.
