INGREDIENTS:
Servings: 1

  • 1 scoop Tone It Up Vanilla Protein
  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup egg whites (or 1 Tbsp. ground flax mixed with 3 Tbsp. warm water for vegan version)
  • 1/2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp of rose water
  • Dollop of strawberry yogurt (Lavva)
  • Handful of fresh strawberries
  • Handful of Rose Petals

INSTRUCTIONS: 

  1. Mash banana with almond milk before stirring in remaining ingredients. If you’re using a flax egg instead of egg whites, allow the ground flax seeds and water to sit for 1-2 minutes before you add it into the mixture.
  2. Spray pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-low before pouring in batter. Flip when ready.  The key to the perfect protein pancake is to cook them slow and low!
