Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 1 scoop of Protein powder (gingerbread if you have)
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 scoop of rolled oats (50g)
  • Tablespoon of butter (for frying)
  • Green food colouring

Optional toppings:

  • Whipped cream
  • Gingerbread men
  • Syrup
  • Sprinkles

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

  1. Firstly, add eggs and banana to a blender and blend until smooth
  2. Add protein, food colouring and oats, then blend again until mixed together
  3. Heat a little butter over a frying pan at a medium temperature before pouring over ¼ of the batter (if you want thick pancakes, wait 15 seconds for them to fry a little, then add more batter to the top), then turn heat to low
  4. Cook over a low heat for 30-60s, then flip, then cook for a further 30 seconds. Remove from plate and repeat process, making each pancake smaller to shape a tree, with the rest of the batter until you’ve got a stack
  5. Top with whatever toppings you’d like. We used maple syrup, Christmas sprinkles, gingerbread man, whipped cream and a strawberry
