2 ingredient pancakes

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

There really isn't much to say about what the ingredients are and how to do this as its just that simple. Take a banana (riper the better), mash it up with a fork and stir in an egg. Heat up a fry pan (not too hot) and add a little pam or oil and pour in 1/4 cup size of the batter. Be patient, these take longer than regular pancakes. They are a tad tricky to "flip" but a little practice and you will be a master in no time.

Really? Are you getting lazy Erinn? Nope, but the fact that they are around 175 calories for the whole serving or say 60 calories per pancake makes me happy and of course, avoiding the ol' wheat belly is another added bonus.

We shared this recipe at work and have had HUGE success with the moms with young kids. Many alternatives have also been made and discussed at length. Here is the ever growing list of different things to add to the pancakes, add your comments if you have any other good combinations that you have tried:

Cinnamon (I am told this is a must)
PB2 - I added on top, but others are adding right into the recipe
Protein powder
Oatmeal (a coworkers said it made them sturdier)
Flax seed
Mint (yep, one coworker was adamant that mint made them delicious)

recipe courtesy of link I attached they have some great ones on there!!

    This gets me thinking. I might try something with eggs.

    cool pancakes

i wonder if the flax meal mix(water and flax seed meal mixed together, making it gel like) would work in place of eggs?

    I don't support PB2 by the way. It's a processed item. Good old fashioned pnut butter or a nut butter, maybe.
