Make the pancakes: In a large bowl, combine flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate large bowl, whisk mashed banana, agave, yogurt, coconut oil, egg, and milk until smooth. Fold flour mixture into liquid mixture until batter is just combined.
Cook pancakes by 1/4-cupfuls on a greased hot skillet, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes per side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep pancakes warm.
Make the syrup: In a small saucepan, heat syrup and chai spice until syrup is just simmering. Remove from heat and serve syrup hot with pancakes. Garnish pancakes with fruit if desired. Enjoy!
