Living a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t mean compromising on treating yourself from time to time. Whilst pancakes may not seem like the go-to for breakfasts or snacking, there are easy ways of adding nutritional value into this traditional treat. If you’re a sucker for chocolate, try these super chocolate and banana protein pancakes.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (to make 2-3 pancakes):

  • 46g (or around 1 and a half rounded scoops) of USN Blue Lab Whey
  • 1 x Large banana
  • 2 x Egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons of milk (this can be substituted for almond, coconut or soy milk)
  • ¼ Teaspoon of baking powder
  • ½ Teaspoon of cinnamon


  • Separate the egg whites in to a bowl and whisk them.
  • Add all other ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth.
  • Fold in the egg whites to your blended mixture.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Use a little oil or coconut oil to grease it.
  • Add a ladle of batter to the frying pan. Use this as a measurement for each pancake, so if your pan can cook more than one at the same time, add another ladle of batter.
  • Cook each side of the pancake for 1-2 minutes. You should see the pancake start to bubble.
  • Cook until both sides of the pancakes are golden brown and around 1cm thick.
  • Eat warm, with sliced bananas in between and on top of the pancakes.

Top tip: Add a drop or two of coconut syrup for a little more sweetness.
