We're officially in week 2 of the Fall Intermittent Fasting Challenge and the AENpeeps have been crushing it. I've loved seeing everyone's checkins and community support in the private AEN Facebook group. But probably one of my favorite things to see are all of the meal pictures you've been sharing. It's incredibly inspiring to see thousands of men and women around the world taking the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle recipes and fueling their body with high quality protein, fat and fiber rich meals... and LOVING every bite!😋

Today, I'm sharing one of my latest favorite protein pancakes ~ my Banana Cream Protein Pancake 🥞 This recipe is loaded with 20 grams of complete protein, contains 0 grams of added sugar and doesn't have ANY grains.
And did I mention that it's absolutely drool-worthy?
I love making protein pancakes on days that I want more of a "chew-able" meal. Which I have to admit, about 90% of the time, I'm making a smoothie. But there are certainly those moments when sitting down to a cozy, delicious and satiating protein pancake sounds divine.
I mean, just look at that picture above... you need to make this recipe ASAP.
The best part about this recipe is that it fits perfectly into the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols, making it an excellent meal to break your fast with.
The sweetness in this protein pancake recipe comes from mashed banana and the zero sugar sweetener used in Autumn's Protein Powder ~ monk fruit extract. Monk fruit is my zero sugar sweetener of choice because it adds a hint of sweetness without the weird after taste that stevia can have and without the bloating that sugar alcohols can cause.
And because we're using my zero sugar protein powder instead of traditional grain-loaded pancake mix, we're getting the added perks of an additional 20 grams of complete protein! So if you're having difficulties hitting all of your protein needs, this is a delicious way to help boost your intake 😋
Whip this up today for some warming, pancake goodness!
Banana Cream Protein Pancakes
2 scoops Autumn's Vanilla Protein Powder
1 egg (or 1 flax/chia egg)*
1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ghee, butter or coconut oil (for cooking)
3-4 Tbsp. homemade zero sugar whipped cream (find the recipe HERE)
1/2 banana, sliced
Additional cinnamon for sprinkling
Add all of the ingredients (except for the cooking oil and toppings) to a bowl and mix to combine.
In a pan over medium heat, add the cooking oil. Pour pancake batter into the heated pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Serve with recommended toppings.
Note: If you are carb sensitive, I recommend swapping out the 1/2 mashed banana for 1/4 cup pumpkin puree.
*To make one flax or chia egg, combine 1 Tbsp. flax or chia seeds with 3 Tbsp. warm water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before using in the recipe. Keep in mind, this swap will reduce the total protein by 6 grams.
