Apple-Banana Protein Pancakes

I love a hearty breakfast. The benefits of getting water and food in the beginning of the day are huge. In this meal we combine fruit, protein, eggs, and much more for a satisfying and delicious breakfast. The flaxseeds provide antioxidants that repair damage from free radicals.

Freeze some for a quick meal!

1/4 cup instant oats

1/2 cup protein powder, try the brand I use at this link, click here

2 TBS ground flaxseed

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt, I use pink Himalayan 

1 very ripe banana

2 whole eggs, I get mine from a friend in Cedar Rapids, the money goes to children in Africa

1 cup thawed frozen apples, I order mine from Iowa Valley Food Coop

2-4 TBS almond milk, I use half coconut half almond

*nutmeg and cinnamon for sprinkling, agave for drizzle

In a medium bowl, combine oats, protein powder, ground flaxseeds (ground in coffee grinder), baking powder and salt. Whisk to mix. 

Peel banana and place into a separate bowl. Mash with a fork, then stir in eggs. Add wet mix to dry, and stir until well mixed. Let stand for 5 minutes. 

Gently fold in apples. Add milk, 1 TBS at a time, to reach pourable consistency. 

Heat a griddle or large skillet, and add cooking oil. We used coconut. Check frequently as the powder will make it seem to burn. Ours came out dark but the flavor was amazing and the burn was superficial.
