Banana Pancakes

Another old post but the recipe still kicks butt!

All you need is 3 ingredients:

Eggs, Banana, and Baking Powder- and the baking powder isn’t even necessary!

1

1 banana, 2 eggs! Not much else to say about that.

2

Mash your banana til there’s almost no chunks. It needs to be super smooth. You can do it in a real bowl, or Tupperware- I’m gonna assume your dish of choice will directly correlate with whether or not you are a college student.

3

Crack those eggs in there. In the picture, you only see one egg yolk, and that’s because I only used 1 whole egg plus the whites from the other (this cuts down on a good bit of fat). Two whole eggs will work fine though. Also throw in a pinch of baking powder. This isn’t necessary, but it’ll make your pancakes a little more “pancake-y.”

4

Cook your pancakes like you would any others. I only use ~2 Tbsp. batter per pancake.. That way I get to have like 8 of them. *Note* These stick to the pan badly. I used a non-stick pan but still needed to spray it with cooking spray.

Voila! Pancakes! I topped these with sugar-free syrup and enjoyed!

Just look how delicious that “massive” stack of pancakes looks! I have to say they don’t taste exactly like cracker barrel hotcakes with real maple syrup (they’re my favorite), but they’re pretty darn good for healthy food! I don’t like eggs (I know, weird), but I love these! They’re so moist you totally don’t even need syrup, but it’s a positive addition (Isn’t it always?).

Banana Pancakes

Yields: 8 “Silver-Dollar” Pancakes
What you Need:
1 Banana             Pinch of Baking Powder
2 Eggs
Other ingredients that could be added:
Handful of berries (Blueberries are delicious)                 Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
Mini Chocolate Chips (Chocolate Banana, yum!)              2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
2 Tbsp. Applesauce
1. Mash banana
2. Thoroughly mix in egg and baking powder
3. Mix in other additional ingredients you might want (I strongly suggest it)
4. Cook in medium-low heated skillet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray until browned on both sides. Note: These do not “bubble” like regular pancakes when they’re ready to flip. I’d say they only take +/- 1 minute per side.
5. Devour aggressively.. or enjoy slowly. You decide.
