Sometimes, you just need to eat pancakes.
But I’ve learned over the years that as amazing as normal pancakes taste, eating them really throws off my whole day. I can never get the bolus right, and it just turns into a lot of anxiety and high blood sugar. If anything in the world should not be anxiety-inducing, it is pancakes.
This recipe has been all over the internet for a while now, but I think it’s important to talk about them every so often because TWO (healthy) INGREDIENTS. And they are so good. I started making them while I was studying abroad in France last year, because they were so simple and I had a very limited amount of cooking appliances. (Read: I had one fork that I used for 10 months. These pancakes were only made possible after someone gifted me a spatula.)
So, the ingredients are 1 egg + 1 banana. That’s all. (but I do suggest adding a tablespoon of cinnamon too, it helps hold them together)
All you do is mash the banana with a fork, crack the egg into the same bowl, mix it together, and voila: healthy, wholesome pancake batter!
I usually cook them over medium heat, and make silver-dollar sized pancakes because they hold together better than larger ones.
If the banana is ripe, I usually don’t even add sugar-free syrup or honey, but if the banana isn’t as ripe, I’ll add a little bit.
They’re such a good, lower carb alternative to regular pancakes and they’re actually really good for you!
