Banana Crepes Recipe
1 scoop of banana flavored whey protein powder (or vanilla will work if it’s all you have)
½ cup egg whites
Stevia to taste
1 tbsp. peanut butter
Whisk together the protein powder with egg whites and Stevia until thin liquid is formed. Pour into a hot non-stick skillet on medium heat, cooking for 1-2 minutes, flipping at half-time. A thin, crepe like pancake should form.
Remove from heat and serve with some natural peanut butter (melted in the microwave slightly beforehand if desired) along with a sliced banana.
Feel free to swap out the banana for any other berry or fruit and use almond butter rather than peanut.
You can also use other flavours of protein powder such as chocolate as well for a totally new take on this recipe.
