Method:

1. Place the banana in a bowl and roughly mash using a fork. Add the chia seeds and mix until well-combined.

2. Add the eggs to the banana and chia seeds and whisk until well-combined. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest and thicken.

Why are protein pancakes good for you?

Whether you choose to make this recipe for breakfast, or even as a dessert, these 3 ingredient protein pancakes are a delicious way to up your protein intake in a super easy meal.

Why is protein important? While there are many myths about protein and how much you should consume, one thing is for sure: this essential macronutrient helps your body to build muscle, as well as to maintain the health of your body’s tissues and organs. 

Also, because your body can only absorb a certain amount of protein every time you eat, spacing it out over the course of the day is really important. Having these pancakes as a breakfast or dessert can be a great way to increase your overall daily protein intake, especially if you feel like you’re not getting enough!

We’d love to see how your 3 ingredient pancakes turn out — that is, if you can hold off eating them long enough to take a photo! Be sure to tag us at @sweat on Instagram so we can see your delicious creations.
