Healthy Banana Pancakes

Let me just start by saying I hate bananas. Which is a real shame, because most recipes that are the healthy version of a classic involve bananas. So it’s a miracle that I even tried to make these in the first place, but I’m so glad that I did because they are DELICIOUS. You can hardly taste the banana, especially when they’re topped with peanut butter. I first tried one of those 2-ingredient, egg and banana versions but they just weren’t doing it for me, so I added in a few extra ingredients and voila, a new breakfast favourite. If you want to up your protein and reduce your carbs, try substituting the flour with protein powder (note: I haven’t tried doing this, I just think it would work well).

Ingredients:

  • 3 bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

Directions:

  • In a medium size mixing bowl, mash bananas well with a fork, leaving as little lumps as possible
  • Whisk in the eggs, then add in the baking powder, cinnamon, and flour and whisk well until combined
  • Pour batter into a pan using a 1/4 cup measure (you should be able to fit about 4 in the pan at a time) and cook on your stove over medium heat, flipping them when you start to see parts cooking through
  • Enjoy!

Yields 10-12 pancakes

      Haha that’s exactly what happened when I made this recipe! They can be frozen too (with parchment paper in between), and reheated in the toaster for meal prep 🙂
