These aren’t your traditional pancakes like the ones you’d expect from an iHOP or somewhere similar. Instead they are healthy pancakes packed with 10g of protein. Even better, they serve one person and contain just three ingredients:
- a banana
- an egg
Seriously, can a pancake recipe get any easier than this and NOT be from a box? Win-win for sure!
As I said, these are not your typical pancakes, so don’t expect them to taste like regular ones. With that said, they are still good. The texture and taste kind of remind me of the sweet, eggy-inside of french toast. They are denser, and not as fluffy or billowy like the boxed version.
These three-ingredient pancakes also get the stamp of “kid-approved”. While they aren’t Harper’s favorite pancake recipe (these banana protein pancakes are her favorite), she still enjoyed them.
If desired, top your pancakes with a little little wheat germ, flaxseed, fresh berries and pure maple syrup. Or top with a pat of butter if you just don’t care. 🙂
