Please excuse my crappy iphone pic. One day I’ll update this post with a better shot.
When I found out about this version of pancakes my heart skipped a beat. I’m not going to lie. I really like sugar. I, however, cut added sugar out of my diet. I like these pancakes because they use bananas as a natural source of the sweet stuff 🙂
Here are a few other reasons I love them:
1: They are gluten free
2: They are High protein
3: I get tired of eating scrambled eggs for breakfast
4: they are easy to make
5: Who doesn’t LOVE banana pancakes?
6: They give me an excuse to consume nutella (in extreme moderation, but still!)
I could keep going, but I’m already being annoying. Without further adieu: Simple protien pancakes!!
Ingredients: (to serve one person)
*1 large banana
*egg whites equivilent to 2 large eggs
*non stick cook spray (preferably using a misto to avoid disgusting chemicals)
1. Using a magic bullet or other blender add both ingredients.
2. blend until smooth (but do not over blend)
3. Heat a non stick pan on high. spray it with nonstick spray. Pour batter to make pancakes that are approximately 5 inches in diameter.
4. wait. these pancakes take longer to cook than your avergage everyday stacks. Take a deep breath and give it some time.
5: carefully flip the pancake. The second side will cook slightly faster than the first.
6: Remove on a separate plate. Let it cool. These guys get nice and hot so give it some time.
7: repeat until all of the batter is gone. It should make 3-4 mini pancakes.
*if your pancakes seem really thin try adding 2 TB almond flower
*your pancakes might come out on the dark side, this is fine. Mine often come out dark, but they taste fine.
*Dont overblend your pancakes. The blender will fluff them up with air and they won’t cook as well.
I eat these bad boys after I hit the gym in the morning. Given my hours, this is also my bedtime. But they’re kind of like dessert. If I’m feeling like I need and extra treat, I dip a fork in nutella and dab some on top of my pancake stack (a little nutella goes a LONG way!)
