Suhoor Recipe: Peanut Butter, Banana & Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

We are approaching the final days of Ramadan. Although Ramadan is an amazing month and we don’t want it to pass by too quickly, I think many people can agree that at this stage of the month we are starting to feel extra hungry, more tired and ready to get back to normal sleeping patterns. Continuing on a healthy eating regimen during this final week is crucial to help us get through the later nights and longer prayers.

Here is a delicious, healthy, and super easy breakfast recipe that is perfect for Suhoor. These pancakes are packed with good carbs, healthy fats, and lots of protein to help keep you full and energized throughout the day.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup wheat flour

1 banana

2 medium eggs

1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla but any flavor will work, esp. chocolate, peanut butter, or banana)

1 tbsp honey

1 heaping tbsp all natural peanut butter

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 handful chocolate chips (I used dark)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup milk (I used almond milk but any kind is find)

Directions:

In medium-sized mixing bowl, mash up the banana, then add all of the ingredients and whisk together until batter is smooth. Add some cooking spray onto a non-stick skillet or pan and cook the pancakes on medium heat. Cook on the first side until the sides start to cook and the batter bubbles, then flip and cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes. This recipe makes between 4-8 pancakes, depending on how big or small you like them.
