Are you kidding me?! This recipe is ridiculous. A real LOL-er, right? Like, I’m never.ever.ever. making real pancakes again.

Lately this mashed banana + egg recipe has been blowing up the fitness/health blogs [ one lovely reader also recommended this to me + Blogilates + The Fitness Dish ]. For shits & giggles, I added my own touches: a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, some ground flaxseed, a bit of vanilla, & a dash of cinnamon. But honestly, just the two measly ingredients of bananas & egg are perfection.

Ok. Let’s talk syrup. Buying low-sugar syrup does not equal healthy. In fact, filling your bod with fake sugars is bloating, makes you crave/eat more, & is full of disgusting, sick-o chemicals. If you love syrup on silver dollllllas, choose all-natural maple syrup & use it sparingly. Drenching them until they’re wilted is gross. I mean, is it necessary to have a side of pancakes with your syrup? Nope! Use a little & move on.

Happy Tuesday!

  The Skinny, Skinny Pancake

 { Serves 2-3 }

 1 mashed, super ripe banana

2 eggs

Coconut oil for the pan

My additions: a bit of pumpkin pie spice, 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed [ this really, really holds the mixture together ], a bit of vanilla, & a dash of cinnamon.

Optional: all-natural maple syrup + berries

+ Directions: mash your banana with a fork. In another bowl whisk eggs. Mix eggs & banana together. Add my additions. Put the coconut oil in the pan [ on low-medium heat ]. Add a silver dollar-sized amount to the pan. Let the cake set for thirty seconds [ or when the center bubbles ] & flip it! Enjoy with berries & a bit of syrup. Option: if you’re pressed for time use a blender to mix your ingredients.

      I find to make these edible, salt and pepper are absolute necessities, and a tablespoon of flour sure helps the consistency.

    I will definitely try these pancakes! They look delicious and yet there are filled with protein and as long as they contain bananas you just can’t go wrong, right? I wil try this ASAP :)

    These were absolutely delicious! Just for future reference though, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, when heated to a high temperature in a pan, such as when making pancakes, causes the protein structure to change and that good, olive-y fat becomes a saturated fat! In some cases oils such as vegetable oil are much better because they will not become saturated when heated!

      Love this tip! Thanks Katlyn ; ).

      Nooooo … use coconut oil – although it’s a saturated fat, it’s a very different kind of saturated fat than the ones your doctor wants you to avoid … and please be aware that almost all veggie oil is SO not good for you – it’s mostly all GMO now and besides, even polyunsaturates are stored as fat in your body. Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid that does not get stored as fat, but is used as energy immediately … it doesn’t require pancreatic enzymes or bile for digestion, and breaks down differently than poly or mono saturates, making it VERY healthy for you. Do yourself a favour and Stay away from vegetable oil for frying, and only use EVOO for uncooked dressings like that used for salads.

    Lauryn, these are clever… Do they take on a banana flavor?
    I’ve been making a “protein pancake” recipe for years that is 3 ingredients: oats, cottage cheese & eggs [or egg whites]. I thought those were to die for but maybe this is the new trick… thanks for the tip!!
    Miss you, a group of us are going to try to visit you @ body rok!! :)
