As a general rule I refuse to approach food and eating as a diet. Instead I prefer to cook food that is packed with flavor and just so happens to be healthy (most of the time, moderation right?). Maybe that’s why I hesitated to try these pancakes for so long after first seeing them. Skinny Pancakes sounds like a recipe for disaster, aka icky tasting breakfast in no way resembling the original recipe it was inspired from. Well, shame on me because oh how wrong I was. These pancakes are light and flavorful and take about 10 minutes max from “I’m gonna make pancakes” to “Mmmmm, pancakes”…a huge plus. They have the texture and weight of a crepe and the lightest hint of banana. They also leave you feeling good and satiated without the normal carb crash nap you are used to after a stack of flapjacks. Trust me, they are worth the try. I bet you will make them again and again.
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2. Grease pan or griddle with coconut oil and cook like a regular pancake on medium / low heat until you see the little bubbles start to pop and the bottom turns golden brown
