Food Photography: The Mighty Protein Pancake

Food is quickly becoming one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Lately, I can’t get enough. I’ve been photographing almost everything I cook, even simple endeavours like pancakes.

These particular pancakes are some of my favorite to make because they are quick, flour free and super good for you. Take a look, jot down the recipe and enjoy!

The Mighty Protein Pancake

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 2 eggs (1 whole egg + 1 egg white)

  • 1 T. Bob’s Redmill Hemp Protien Powder

  • 2 tsp. flax meal

  • 2 tsp. chia seeds

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil (to grease your skillet)

  • salt (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mash ripe banana in mixing bowl. I do this with a fork, since the banana is ripe it should be quick and easy. It’s okay to leave some lumps.

  2. Add the eggs to your mixing bowl. I like to use 1 full egg + 1 egg white. You can easily do 2 full eggs, 2 egg whites or even just 1 egg.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients- hemp powder, flax meal, chia seed, cinnamon, vanilla. Mix until combined.

  4. Grease your skillet with coconut oil and put it on a low heat.

  5. Add your mix to your greased skillet. You can add all of your batter to make a giant pancake or spoon it out to make silver dollar sized pancakes. I like to make mine in a small omelette sized skillet- resulting in a giant pancake.

  6. Cover your skillet for about 3-5 minutes as the pancake cooks. Flip half way through and continue cooking for another minute.

  7. Remove pancake from skillet and top any way you like! I top mine with berries as a healthier alternative to syrup.

  8. ENJOY!
