Banana Pancakes

I tapped on my Instagram app and came across a breakfast post from my friend Baxa:

Seriously? My mouth watered as I hugged my growling stomach. I tried to close my eyes and fall back asleep but the waffles haunted me. I really do hate when people post such savory, sweet, luscious, delectable food pictures. I walked shamelessly to my fridge and decided to make banana pancakes to eat. Here is a recipe for guilt free, low calorie, high protein pancakes you can substitute for sweet, sugary breakfast foods.

You will need:

1 banana
2 eggs

Yep, that’s it! Chop the bananas and crack two eggs in a bowl. Whisk/mash well until it gets frothy.

I’m using a nonstick griddle because I don’t like to use oil or sprays. I have mine set to 300°f (medium heat if you’re using a skillet). Pour the mixture to the size of pancake you want. I let it sit for 2-3 minutes before I flipped it. Yeah, yeah they aren’t perfect circles but it will do 🙂

This is a healthier alternative to any flour based pancake. I wish I had strawberries in my fridge to top it off. Oh! Another great thing about these pancakes is that you can skip on the sugary syrups. The ripe bananas already give a natural sweetness 🙂 These are gluten free, a good source of protein, low calorie, and provide good carbs.
