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!
