Low Calorie, High Protein Banana Pancakes – 2 Ingredients!

You all know that breakfast is my all-time favorite meal. I have been known to eat breakfast for each meal of the day, and I fly my breakfast flag high. My favorite food of all time? Pancakes. Hands down. But buttermilk pancakes aren’t exactly nutritious. So I wanted to figure out an alternative!

I bring you…

BananEgg Pancakes! Hooray!

bananaegg collageGuys, these are so easy it’s ridic. All you need are some nanners and some eggs. Check it out:

BananEgg Pancakes

4 eggs
2 bananas
Pam or other non-stick agent

Slice your banana into a bowl. Add eggs. Whisk together until semi-smooth. You’ll have some clumpy banana bits, but that’s okay. Pour 1/4 cup of “batter” onto warm skillet (medium to medium high is best — eggs are delicate!). Let ’em cook for about 45 seconds each side, and voila! Each batch makes about 15 minicakes. You don’t want them to be too big, or they’ll be hard to flip :).

    I made these this morning, using 1/4 cup of mixture at a time – it made 4 pancakes. There’s also no way that 1 banana and 2 eggs would anyway equal to 496 calories total.. 2 eggs and 1 banana is around 240 calories depending on the size of the banana. None the less, these were delicious and super easy!

    Yum! We did breakfast for dinner and these were a hit. My daughter asked if we could add strawberries, and that was an awesome idea. Both of my kids gobbled them up – without any syrup!

    I wanted to try this, but I didn’t have any bananas, so I used mashed sweet potato instead (about 1/3 cup puree per banana). It works! I think I will throw in some cinnamon and nutmeg next time around.

    Super delish! I changed it up a bit …

    1/2 banana
    1 whole egg, 1 white.
    1/2 scoop (15 grams) sisu whey protein powder unflavoured
    cinnamon to taste
    1/2 cup of steel cut oats (cooked)
    Mixed, mashed well.

    The key is to use small amounts like Ashley says, or they don’t cook well.
    I tried with olive oil and olive oil cooking spray. The cooking spray works best.

    I mixed 1/2 tbsp. of pure maple syrup with 2 tbsps of plain low fat yogurt.
    (Not a fan of SF syrups, splenda, sugar alcohols, stievia etc so decided to try this – it terrific!)
    Yum and more yum.
    Thanks Ashley!

    These were awesome! I wish there was a way to make them a little crispier. We’ll experiment and get back to you if we figure it out!
