Bananas Foster Pancakes
Recipe (Serves 1)

1 banana, peeled and sliced longways
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 packets Truvia/Stevia
1/2 cup pancake mix
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a foil-lined baking dish, arrange the sliced banana (sliced longways), with the cut side up. Pour the lemon juice over the banana, then sprinkle with the cinnamon and stevia. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the pancake mix, vanilla whey protein powder, and cinnamon. Next, add in the pure vanilla extract. Lastly, slowly add in the water, until the batter becomes the consistency of pancake batter (this will depend on the brand of pancake mix you use— I use Big Train’s Low Carb Pancake/Waffle Mix). On a lightly oiled pan over high heat, pour the pancake batter by 1/3 cup increments onto the pan. Flip the pancake as soon as the edges become cakey to cook on the other side. Repeat until all of the pancake batter is used. Recipe should make about 3 pancakes total.

In a bowl, combine the vanilla Greek yogurt with one of the banana halves mashed, retaining the other half of the banana. Spread the banana yogurt mixture between the pancakes, reserving some of the mixture for topping. Top the pancakes with the other banana half and the remaining banana yogurt mixture. Serve and enjoy!
