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! 😉
We know–we can hardly believe it either–that’s all ya need! Oh and we used coconut oil which we spritzed in the pan with a spray container–kept the calories very low and added a yummy sweetness!

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
4 large eggs, preferably organic
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)
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!

Oh my Lord these pancakes were the bomb.com and I didn’t need to add any type of syrup or anything to them. The sweetness of the banana and the taste of cinnamon was enough to eat them as they were. Thanks so much.
I love these. I haven’t eaten pancakes in years because they’re so heavy but without all of the extra ingredients I have had them 3 times in the last 3 weeks!
Thanks so much for letting us know! That’s fantastic news, we’re so happy you’re loving them and feeling light after! That’s just what we wanted!:) xoxo
Delicious! I had some toasted coconut/pecans in the fridge from a recent recipe and threw about 2 tablespoons into the “batter”. Really good! And I’m sure the pancakes would’ve also been amazing without this addition.
Oh yum! Thanks so much for letting us know–that sounds delicious! We’re so glad you liked the recipe!Thank you! xoxo
I recently started making banana pancakes but added a teeny bit of gf baking mix to help keep them together when flipped. But i bet the cinnamon would also help keep them together more too. Going to try this. Ive been trying to conceive and gaining a few lbs each cycle from the stress and cravings from the meds…these help keep me on a better eating routine yet hit that sweet tooth.
Thank you Kristina for this and for letting us know they are a good way to get the sweet tooth satisfied–for us too! Please let us know if they stay together or if you need the gf baking mix. And good luck in your journey to conceive! How exciting! Sending you lots of great wishes–and good for you for working on a better eating routine!! xoxo
