Skinny 3-Ingredient Pancakes

  April 5, 2016  |    Blog>Recipes

Don’t get us wrong… this pair of twin sister registered dietitians, personal trainers and veggie lovers do love our carbs!  In fact we rely on wholesome quality carbs for our energy, to fight constipation 😉 and bloat–and to help fight off our sweet cravings by giving us brain fuel and preventing us from needing a quick pick-me up (ie–sugar!)!  But there’s something pretty cool about an awesome pancake that’s not super carb-heavy and that’s got a decent amount of protein compared to the amount of carbs.  And this hot number we’re excited to share with you is easy to make, super yummy, has only 3-ingredients!! –and the wholesome carb is from fiber and potassium-packed bananas (let’s hear it for this bloat-busting combo, woohoo! 🙂)– and these yumsters will tide you over for hours.  You’re welcome! 😉

Skinny 3-Ingredient Pancakes

If you have two of these yummy jacks, you’ll get 16 grams of protein.  If you have just one, top it with a 6 ounce nonfat Greek yogurt and berries and you’ll get about 20 grams of protein.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you–these are Goooood! 🙂

Makes 4 Large Pancakes
Ingredients
4 large eggs (we use Eggland’s Best because they have 25% less saturated fat than other eggs)
2 large (about 4.25 ounces each)) ripe bananas
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Coconut oil in a spray container (Optional, we love the sweetness this adds)

Directions
1. Using a fork mash bananas in a medium size bowl. Keep mashing until no more lumps are present.
2. Whisk in the eggs and cinnamon until the eggs are beaten.
3. Heat a large pan over low- medium heat. Spritz pan with coconut oil. You could use another oil but we used coconut and loved it.
4. Once the pan is thoroughly heated, add ½ cup batter to the pan. We made two pancakes at a time and cooked each for about 3-4 minutes on both sides until the bottom was golden and when we flipped it the pancake was cooked through.
Note: Between the two batches we spritzed the pan with oil again.
4. Serve and enjoy! You can top with berries and honey but it’s not even necessary, these are so yummy on their own!
