This is an excellent recipe for those who needs a high protein diet. If you are working out or looking for good amount of protein, this recipe meets your protein requirement and it is low in calories.Method
Put banana, egg white, oat, sugar, soy milk and half pecan nut in to a blender and grind it, but make sure it’s not a very smooth batter (keep it a little coarse).
Crush the rest of the pecan nut, and add to the mixture so you get a bite of pecan nut when you eat the pancake.
Heat the griddle, brush it with very little butter. Ensure it’s moderately hot.
Spoon the pancake mixture on to the griddle (as per the size you want) 2.5 inch diameter is an ideal size.
Allow it to cook. When one side is completely golden brown, turn the pancake to the other side and allow it to cook.
Stack pancakes on a plate and pour some jiggery syrup on top of it, put a spoon of whipped soy cream on the side and the stewed fruit. Top the cream with a mint sprig (and berry compote if you wish to).
