Banana and Chia Seeds Pancakes

For 1 serve you need:

One and a half tablespoons of Chia seeds.

One whole egg and one egg white.

One cup of oats.

One scoop of low carb whey protein powder (approx. 1/3 of a cup).

One small banana (mashed).

Dash of almond milk.

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

Two tablespoons of natural yoghurt.

One tablespoon of coconut oil.

Place chia seeds into a bowl with 1/2 cup of water and soak for at least ten minutes. Stir a couple of times. Chia seeds absorb the water and swell into a jelly type consistency. Combine all ingredients into a bowl (excluding yoghurt and coconut oil). If the mixture seems dry, add a dash of almond milk. Bring pan to medium heat temperature, grease with coconut oil. Pour pancake batter into three small pancakes and cook until golden brown. Flip pancakes (it should take 2-3 min. on each side). Serve pancakes topped with yoghurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon and fruit. Enjoy :)
