Recipe: 3 Ingredient Pancakes


iPhone 762


1 large ripe banana

2 eggs

cinnamon (to taste)



Lightly oil and put your skillet or grill pan on medium heat. Mix the banana, eggs and cinnamon together in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mash the banana with a fork and whisk it together with the eggs an cinnamon. Pour the batter in the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until you start to see tiny bubbles in the batter. Flip the pancake over and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes. Top with your favorite topics, or eat plain.

Verdict:  Eat again (and again, and again) 

After seeing this recipe on Pinterest, I was a little skeptical that mixing a banana, eggs and cinnamon together could make anything that remotely resembled a pancake. Despite my skepticism, I decided to give the recipe a try because it was gluten free, high protein and low carb.  I was pleasantly surprised that these pancakes not only looked like pancakes, but they tasted really good, almost like banana bread. I topped my pancakes with fresh strawberries and a little whipped cream, but the banana does make them sweet enough to eat plain.  I liked them so much that I made these pancakes again, adding walnuts for an extra boost of protein. This will definitely be a go to favorite for a quick and delicious breakfast.
