American Things.

Y’all…Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to all of those who have fought for our great U.S.A. and are still fighting for us.

It’s an honor to know that you serve our country so faithfully.

I’m about to get real Merica’ on y’all.


I’ve been on a pancake kick lately.

I’m always on a breakfast kick, so ya know I just love to rotate omelets, pancakes, waffles, fruit, etc.

We are making fluffy banana pancakes w/ cooa powder + protein powder.


Mhhhhhhhm…chocolate for breakfast…essentially.


Oh, and don’t even think you will have that protein powder after-taste in these babies.


It’s totally in disguise.


Won’t even taste it.


Plus, I practically smeared a 1/4 c. of sunflower seed butter on these babies.


Because these are pancakes and


we go all out.


Amen to breakfast.

Fluffy, banana cocoa pancakes topped w/ creamy sunflower seed butter and packed with protein. Gluten-free, paleo.
  • 1 large, ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 large eggs or ⅓ c. liquid egg whites

  • sunflower seed butter, for topping
  1. Spray a small non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium to low heat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together (except the sunflower seed butter), until smooth.
  3. Drop the batter by two tablespoons into the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes, flip, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  4. Plate and serve with sunflower seed butter on top!

    since I won’t be using the same protein powder as you, do you mind providing the total weight in grams (or cups)?

    also…do you think this would work with chia or flax eggs?

    • Chelsy says:

      Zosia, it’s about 1/4 cup of protein powder. You could try flax eggs, my experience in other recipes has produced a gummier texture. 🙂
