I just love pancakes. But I have to admit, they are something I rarely treat myself too. There are two reasons for this: 1) I hate feeling sluggish in the morning and 2) I'm gluten intolerant and refuse to consume highly-processed wheat substitutes (they're just not food in my opinion). I'd rather have some real food that gives me energy. But I couldn't continue to live a pancake free life.. I knew there had to be a way to have my pancake and eat it too! And that's when I scoured the internet for simply, healthy recipes. Then I stumbled on this one. It was so simply I was skeptical that my pancakes would taste like fried eggs or bananas. Neither were true. This recipe is awesome! And unlike traditional pancakes, it is sure to leave you satisfied and full of energy.
Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Made with Bananas! From the Eugenie's Kitchen
Prep time: 5 mins | Cook time 15 mins | Makes 8 small pancakes
- 2 medium bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- Toppings and Fillings:
- Berries, Dried Fruit, Nuts, Chocolate Chips, * 1 scoop of Vanilla PROTEIN POWDER
- Yogurt Honey Sauce: 1/2 Cup Coconut or NF Dairy Yogurt, 2 TBS of Honey, 1 tsp of Cinnamon (if using coconut yogurt, add water to mixture until desired consistency)
- Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and whisk to break.
- Then in another bowl add in 2 bananas and lightly mash with a potato masher or a fork, but not too much. There should be chunks of bananas to make fluffy pancakes. And use only ripe bananas. * Tip: Don’t add too much banana. The pancake will not hold. There should be enough egg to hold mashed banana together.
- Then add egg mixture and 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder into mashed bananas and stir to combine.
- Add any fillings you may want (I used fresh raspberries and blueberries). Optionally add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder.* This may dry out the pancakes a little but will make for a higher protein meal.
- Cook pancakes over medium low heat. 1/3 to 1/2 Cup for each. When the baking powder is activated, flip it over and cook for about one minute more. You can skip baking powder, but then it will feel like banana omelets rather than pancakes.
- Serve immediately and top with classic maple syrup or Yogurt Honey Sauce (recipe above, combine all ingredients)
