To make the Banana Bread Protein Pancakes:

Preheat a griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.

Whisk the whole-wheat flour, all purpose flour, protein powder, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl.

Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the banana milk mixture into that well and stir together. Add a little more milk if you prefer your pancakes thin.

Prepare the preheated griddle or frying pan with a light coating of nonstick cooking spray or oil.

Drop 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the griddle. Cook 3-5 minutes on the first side, or until bubbles start to form. Flip and cook 1-2 minutes on the other side, or until the pancake is cooked through.

To make the Agave Glazed Fruit Topping*:

Place the sliced strawberries, blueberries and raspberries together in a medium bowl. Toss with the agave nectar until all the fruit is thoroughly coated.

To complete the Banana Bread Protein Pancakes:

Top each pancake stack with a generous portion Agave Glazed Fruit and enjoy.
