Brown Bananas, No Eggs...What to Make? Strawberry Banana Pancakes!

Thursday, August 23, 2012

I had 2 brown bananas sitting on my counter and the thought crossed my mind...I wonder if I could make Banana Pancakes for One? But, I didn't have any eggs. Actually if I just went out to our hen house, I could find a fresh egg or two...but wanted to make lunch now as I need to leave soon for work.

Off to the internet for ideas, ingredients, proportions of dry ingredients to wet.
Looking for a recipe WITHOUT eggs.

I found one and modified it to create:

Strawberry Banana Pancakes for One

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 mashed banana
1/4 cup low fat milk
dash salt

Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mash the banana and then add the other liquid ingredients. Stir the dry into the wet.
Fry pancakes in skillet/griddle with no-stick spray.

I got 6 little pancakes out of this batter.

I topped them with 2 Tablespoons of Polaner All Fruit with Fiber Strawberry Spreadable Fruit @ 35 calories a Tablespoon.

* I logged each ingredient into my nutrition tracker and it was 356 calories including the fruit spread.

They were a good way to satisfy a pancake craving with built-in portion control.
