Plantain Pancakes


- 2 green plantains (or yellow for a sweeter flavor)

- 2 eggs

- 1 serving of vanilla protein powder (Get $10 off of our favorite clean plant-based protein powder)

- 1.5 tsp cinnamon

- A splash of local honey

- A pinch of clove seasoning (optional)


1. Begin by peeling and slicing your plantains.

2. In a blender, combine the plantain slices, eggs, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, and honey.

3. If you prefer a touch of spice, add a pinch of clove seasoning to the mix.

4. Blend the ingredients until the batter is smooth and well-combined.

Cooking the Pancakes:

1. Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

2. Once the surface is hot, pour a ladle of batter onto the skillet to form each pancake.

3. Cook until bubbles start forming on the surface and the edges look set, then flip the pancake and cook the other side until it's golden brown.

4. Continue this process until you've used all the batter.

Serving Tip:

One of the fantastic aspects of these pancakes is their versatility. We recommend making a large batch and storing the leftovers in the refrigerator. When you're ready to enjoy them again, simply heat them up in a toaster or on the stovetop.

For a quick, healthy snack, add a dollop of almond butter and some preserves or fresh berries. These pancakes pair wonderfully with a variety of toppings, so get creative and find your favorite combination!

For even more health benefits, use elderberry syrup from a reputable source.
