Breakfast: Healthy Pancakes Recipe!

Healthy Pancakes Pancakes are an “anytime” favorite – fluffy griddle cakes topped with all kinds of sweet and savory goodies. But all too often these beloved treats leave us feeling so heavy and bloated that it ends up not being worth it.

Plus, most pancakes are made with processed flours, refined sugars and oils that trigger inflammation making you feel uncomfortably full, groggy, achy and regretting your decision to chow down on that full stack.

Even if it is delicious on the lips it creates a whole lot of unnecessary stress for our bodies. Stress that many of us are trying to avoid so we can enjoy life to the fullest.

I have great news! There are many options for pancakes these days that allow you to have your (pan)cakes and eat ‘em too!

Using a more balanced nutrient profile, protein pancakes can be a really smart option for breakfast, brunch or anytime of day. Best part – most of these little cakes freeze nicely and can be popped in the toaster for a quick midday snack with some nut butter and fresh fruit!

Gone Bananas for Pancakes

Active time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 2-4 minutes | Yield: 8 small pancakes

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • Butter or oil, for the pan
  • Maple syrup, fresh fruit or any other toppings

Preparation:

  1. Mash the peeled banana with a fork until it becomes like a pudding consistency and all the big lumps are out.
  2. Whisk in baking soda, sea salt, and vanilla
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs until whites and yolks are completely combined.
  4. Incorporate whisked eggs into banana mixture and combine well. It will have a more loose consistency than normal batter.
  5. Cover a griddle, heated to medium heat, with butter or oil – it should sizzle.
  6. Drop 2 Tablespoons worth of batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Cook about 1 minute per side or until golden brown and set in the center.
