Skinny Banana Pancakes

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

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. Yum! I’m going to try these this week. I’ve been experimenting with different types of “healthier” pancakes because I love pancakes so much haha. I love wheat pancakes and buckwheat pancakes, and chick pea pancakes weren’t too bad either. I never thought of just using banana, but that sounds good!
