Ingredients

  • 1 large brown plantain (150 grams)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 heaping scoops Ka'Chava Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt, to taste
  • avocado oil, for greasing (coconut, ghee, or butter work too)
  • optional toppings: butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, cinnamon

Instructions

  • Add the plantain and almond milk to a Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • In a medium sized bowl, beat the eggs. Add the blended plantain mixture and mix together. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with avocado oil to grease the pan. Once hot, using a 1/3 cup as a scoop, scoop mixture into the pan. You may need to spread it out a little/make it into a circle. Cook 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook for another minute. They won't bubble that much like regular pancakes, so just make sure to watch them so they don't burn.
  • Top with toppings of choice.
  • Enjoy!
