Plantain Pancakes

Before I get started, I just wanted to say that I have tried countless “protein pancake” recipes over the years and that the one I am about to show you is a gazillion times better than all of them. I actually think they’re better than regular pancakes as well.

This recipe consists of real food. There are no protein powders and also no types of grains. These aren’t high protein pancakes. These are delicious pancakes that are high in carbohydrates, and not genetically modified carbs, but natural carbs that actually have healthy nutrients in them.

The ingredients are quite simple, all you’re going to need is:

- 2 green plantains

- Vanilla extract

- Some cinnamon

- A high quality salt

- 2-3 whole eggs

- And organic dark chocolate chips (optional)


To begin preparing your pancake mix you’re going to chop-up your plantains exactly as shown here. (Video on YT channel)

Once you’re done doing that, separate the skin from the plantains, discard of the skin, and bring the chopped plantains to your blender along with all the other ingredients.

Carefully dump your plantains into the blender, then crack 2-3 whole eggs into the blender. Grab your vanilla extract and put about a teaspoon or two in the blender. Eyeball your cinnamon and shake it in there. Then crank your salt in there like a madman and you are ready to blend.

I prefer blending it on medium for about 20 second intervals.

Now you’re going to warm-up a pan on medium low heat for a few minutes while you are blending your batter with any desired toppings. My choice of toppings is usually a healthier version of chocolate chips as you can see right here. I dump a few in there and blend it up just a smidge and then my batter is ready to cook.


Pour your desired size and thickness of pancake onto the pan and let it sit until the edges start to crisp and then flip your pancake. You can hold the pancake down so the middle cooks through faster as well.

Then add your butter and maple syrup and you are ready to feast.


Plantains are packed with resistant starch meaning that they won’t raise your blood sugar levels because your body won’t fully digest them. Also, plantains have even more potassium than bananas. Potassium, along with sodium, magnesium, and calcium, is one of the key electrolytes that we must be consuming to replenish our energy levels.

Other nutrients that plantains are rich in are:

- vitamin c

- vitamin B6

- magnesium

- vitamin K

- vitamin A

- copper

- iron


So there you guys go, a healthy and delicious pancake recipe that you can easily make with just a few ingredients.
