I kept reading about recipes for healthy pancakes on various websites. It is delicious, healthy, and gluten free! There are many varieties for this very simple recipes, but I chose the simplest. I used one ripe banana and mashed it into a smooth puree. Then, I mixed in two whole eggs.
I added Pam cooking spray or a little bit of butter in a frying pan, and poured a small amount of my batter into it. I waited about 30 seconds, then flipped it until the other side was brown. The butter made the pancakes look almost burnt, but they were not at all.
I ended up making about 8 small pancakes. I ate the first batch plain with nothing on it. I made the pancakes a second time, and decided to try some pumpkin butter from Trader Joes with them. It was absolutely delicious. It was more of a dessert, so this is a great option for a late night snack” the sweetness from the pumpkin butter mixed with the nutrients of the egg and the banana to help to keep you full (which also helps one to sleep).
I also tried some maple syrup and Log Cabin Syrup with the pancakes, and these made it seem more like a real pancake. It was so delicious. Both were amazing. I would eat it this way again in a heartbeat.
This is my new obsession. Finally, I have a super healthy obsession. It tastes so good, it will keep you full longer than normal pancakes, and there are less carbs. It is full of nutrients and vitamins.
I have heard other variations adding different fruits to the banana and eggs, or adding peanut butter, almond butter, or even adding different spices. Each time I make it, I think I am going to be adding other things to it. It is so easy to change it up and super easy to make! Enjoy!
