Eating Clean: Banana Pancakes

Banana based pancake recipe. No flour; only pure natural ingredients.

Pinterest is a great place to find recipes for just about anything. I came across a couple of pancake recipes that called for only two-ingredients: just an egg and banana. Notice there is no flour. You won’t find a pancake recipe that is any healthier than this.Flour free, sugar-free pancakes, and it tastes good? Yes, please! To be straight with you, they aren’t terribly filling but they do hit the spot for when you are craving pancakes. I don’t think I’ll ever make regular flour pancakes again.

I didn’t think that just egg and banana were enough, so I added cinnamon and I’m glad I did!  These were delicious and light! It’s okay. Be skeptical; you probably don’t think that this works. How would just those few ingredients combined create the consistency of a pancake? I don’t know but it does and it’s delicious.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Egg
1 Large Banana
2-3 shakes Ground Cinnamon (to taste)
*you can also added Sugar Free Syrup

DIRECTIONS: Easiest pancake you ever make!

-Fill a 1/4 sized measuring cup with the pancake batter or pour from bowl for desired size (less dishes to wash)

-Pour onto heated skillet.

– Add any toppings if you wish, now.

-Cook each side until lightly brown. It won’t bubble like a flour pancake but close and it will be solid enough to flip.

I am so excited to continue to make these for breakfast or after a good workout. They are so light and easy to make. Being that I don’t eat meat unless it is anti-biotic/hormone/GMO-free, this is a good source of protein for me. Maybe next time I’ll even add a drop of vanilla extract, or  blueberries, strawberries, chocolate chips, PB2, or pumpkin! I know, I’m just jumping on the crazy train over here, tonight folks! Add whatever floats your boat. It’s all delicious.
{If you make these at home, be sure to come back and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your suggestions of any additional fix-ins too!}
