Barely Banana Protein Pancakes + Rise & Shine Cookbook {Podcast Episode #296}

Over the years, we’ve made more batches of pancakes than we can remember. From pumpkin to blueberry to apple, fluffy pancakes are always greeted with a smile in our households. Now, thanks to these moist and mouthwatering Barely Banana Protein Pancakes (with 4 Little Ingredients), we have a new recipe to add to the mix.

On this week’s Cooking with the Moms podcast, we welcome Katie Sullivan Morford to the show to dish about this recipe and her new cookbook, Rise & Shine: Better Breakfasts for Busy Mornings (Roost Books, 2016) and to talk about easy ways to boost the flavor, variety, and nutrition of your family’s morning meal.

The last thing any of us needs is a breakfast recipe that’s fussy. But after a good night’s sleep, the first thing we all need is nourishment, especially protein. Eating breakfast is good for your body weight, your grades (if you’re in school!), and certainly your mood. To the rescue is Katie’s new book, filled with 75 easy and interesting recipes. We have one copy of Rise & Shine between us, and right now we’re fighting for custody of the book 🙂

We love the idea of adding veggies to breakfast and turning quesadillas into something kids would want to devour in the morning.

And speaking of green, Katie’s green smoothie gets its sweetness naturally from pineapple, banana, and an orange, and we agree that even our kids would love it too.


When we tried Katie’s banana pancakes, we topped them with maple syrup, but you can certainly use homemade jam instead.

Barely Banana Protein Pancakes
The batter for these protein-packed, gluten-free, pint-sized pancakes gets whirled together in one fell swoop in a blender, which doubles as the perfect pouring vessel. They are smaller and thinner than typical pancakes—think silver dollars—with a mild banana flavor that favors a swipe of tangy jam over the traditional drizzle of maple syrup. They taste best when you cook them thoroughly; they are supremely moist, so it’s hard to overdo it. (Reprinted with permission from Roost Books)
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 40 silver-dollar pancakes; 3 or 4 servings
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1⅓ cups cottage cheese
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • Oil or butter for greasing the skillet
  • Favorite jam for serving
  1. Put the eggs, oats, cottage cheese, and banana into a blender. Blend until the oats are pulverized, the cottage cheese is blended, and the batter is smooth.
  2. Set a skillet over medium heat. Add about a teaspoon of oil and swirl the pan to coat the bottom. Pour about 1 tablespoon of batter into the pan for each pancake, making as many as will fit without crowding. Cook until bubbles appear across the surface and the bottom is deeply brown.
  3. Use a spatula to flip the pancake and cook until firm to the touch, another 1 to 2 minutes. Serve hot out of the pan with a thin layer of jam.

    For some reason, breakfast for me is an issue. The recipes I love, prepare and prefer to share are all loaded with fat and serious carbs (think bacon, eggs, bacon, bread, bacon, breakfast casseroles with lots of cheese, and did I mention bacon?). 2017 has to be different and this looks like an excellent start. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    Breakfast is my family’s one meal we can always have together, because of my husbands late-work schedule. Weekdays we are up at 6am, while weekends are our lazier later breakfast time together. This Ninja blender would help get breakfast on the table in a healthy AND fast way with protein-packed smoothies on school mornings but also would work wonders making things like these DELICIOUS sounding pancakes on the weekends. Katie’s recipes look mouth watering and Erin’s photography for the book, is gorgeous! And my blender motor gave out two weeks ago, so winning this amazing tool would be perfect timing .

    My blender is in rough shape and the cookbook looks amazing! I get my 4 y/o’s to eat their greens 4 days /week at breakfast by blending them puréed with grains and nut butters, but I need to expand their repertoire.

    My favorite breakfast recipe is peanut butter and banana pancakes. I’d love to win this because I’ve heard such good things about the Ninja blender.

    I love cookbooks and this one would be a great resource for some healthier recipes to start my family’s morning…could use a new blender as well!

  183. Stacey Maule says:

    I would LOVE the blender as my daughter just took a smoothie class with a local chef and she is hooked! We desperately need a blender upgrade. Not to mention the quest for better breakfasts.

  184. Jen Brock says:

    Breakfast is our favorite meal. We make your pumpkin pancakes a lot from No Whine with Dinner. These banana pancakes looks delicious and nutritious. The blender has been on my wish list for years. I’ve heard it’s life changing.

  185. Christa Wilson says:

    We don’t usually make breakfast in the morning. But our family loves breakfast for dinner. Our favorite is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes from No Whine With Dinner.

    I’d love to win the book to make some great new recipes, and I’d love to win the blender to make delicious smoothies. My favorite family recipe is cinnamon French toast!

  191. I’ve recently become the foster grandma of 2 kids here in Colorado who were raised in drug-infested households. Nutrition was definitely not the highest priority so we have some work to do to help them enjoy a variety of healthy foods. I would very much appreciate both the book and the blender to help me introduce them to a new – and better – food journey. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Happy holidays, everyone!

    I would like to win because I could use some more breakfast ideas, I’m not very original for breakfast. It’s usually either eggs, toast french, cereal, etc. My favorite recipe is french toast with powered sugar and maple syrup.

    I love baked oatmeal! A favorite I have made multiple times is Betty Crocker Whole Grain Apple Baked Oatmeal, but I also have some recipe for Strawberry rhubarb and peach baked oatmeals that I love too!!!

  221. Kathy M says:

    I would love to win because I need more ideas for breakfast. Our pediatrician just told me yesterday that my son needs to eat more protein and whole grain meals/snacks. This sounds perfect!

    I would love to win the blender and cookbook to give me some new ideas for protein packed breakfasts! I especially love fresh smoothies with Greek yogurt, frozen fruit, and green veggies to get my day started.

  225. Darlene Scalise says:

    I want to win it for my daughter; her kids loves smoothies and her bullet broke so she can’t make them right now. Additionally her Cuisinart, so she is really lost. She is a fantastic cook and is very concerned about nutrition for herself and her family. I think the cookbook and the Ninja is right up her alley. (PS I gave the No Whine With Dinner cookbook to a couple of my nieces a few years ago for Christmas and it was a hit)

  226. Robin Servetter says:

    I would looooooove to win this cookbook and blender! Who doesn’t want to eat healthier, and incorporate smoothies into their life (and I’m not gonna lie, maybe an occasional milkshake or two)? The cookbook sounds great! Thanks for the chance to win! <3

  227. Robin Servetter says:

    Oh! And my favorite breakfast recipe? Not the healthiest of choices, but not terrible either….vegan cornmeal pancakes with fresh strawberry sauce

  228. Robin Servetter says:

    Already follow you on Pinterest, Twitter, and FB…have for years. 🙂

  229. Jennie says:

    Looking forward to trying many breakfast recipes anytime of the day. My son has an egg and nut allergy so I would love a podcast on protein options and egg substitutes for a toddler. Thanks!

    • Liz says:

      Great suggestion. What about parfaits made with Greek yogurt (higher in protein than regular), whole grain cereal, and fresh fruit? Or pancakes made without eggs? There are ways to sub out eggs using things like chia seeds and flax seed. Maybe play around with tofu, turning it into a scramble! Keep us posted. Love the idea for a show 🙂
