I love lemons. Plain and simple. 🙂 I have been craving lemon poppy seed *anything* so I decided to try pancakes and use chia seeds since they are supposed to be really healthy and I had them in stock.
- 1-ripe banana (choose a ripe one because that’s what will add sweetness to the cakes)
- 1-Tb. chia seeds
- 2-Tb. protein powder (I think vanilla would be optimal here, but I used chocolate flavored)
- 1/2 of a lemon’s juice
- Lemon zest of one lemon- about 1.5 tsp.
- 1 Tb coconut oil
Step 1: Mash the banana
Step 2: Heat the coconut oil over low-medium heat (will depend on your stove)
Step 3: Add the other ingredients and incorporate well.
Step 4: Pour the batter in. I only cook one at a time, but you could do multiple. I always mess them up when flipping if I do multiple. Some day I’ll get better at this. 😉
Step 5: Flip the pancake after several minutes or when golden brown.
Serve with fresh fruit and enjoy! I used raspberries, blackberries, and pomegranate seeds.
Makes 4 pancakes. (I ate one before the photo. hehe)
