I totally stole this from my husband, but how could I not?!

Gone are the lazy Saturday and Sunday mornings where I could just take my time and cook Classic American Pancakes, but you know sometimes I just really want pancakes. Obviously, we needed a quicker alternative and we began experimenting with different pancake recipes.

Since fitness and nutrition are our hobbies and part of our jobs we use ingredients that are more nutrient dense. In other words, there is a lot more nutrition in these pancakes than your average pancake. The best part is the recipe above takes around two minutes to prepare and only few minutes to cook. Don’t worry about the use of some healthier ingredients doesn’t mean the end result is anything less than fluffy and delicious.

I know, I know, I always say if I am going to eat treats I have the real thing and not a healthier less satisfying version, but this recipe is so good. It lets me spice up breakfast and have a treat I actually get some nutrients out of.

Here is the recipe from the video above:

Half a cup of oats
1 scoop of plain protein powder (aka no taste)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 small banana
2 eggs
A tiny bit less than half a cup of milk
A few drops of vanilla extract or powder

Directions:

Mix the oats in a blender to make oat flour.
Add the baking powder and protein powder and mix it one more time.
Add eggs, milk, banana and vanilla and mix first with a spoon and then the blender.
Cook!
*Serves 1-2

Another recipe I like to use is this one:

2 large bananas
1-2 tablespoons almond butter
1 egg

Directions:

Mix them together with a fork.
Cook!
*Be aware that these pancakes are a lot softer and more difficult to flip!
*Serves 1-2

Toppings:

Honey
Fruit (I love banana and blueberry on them)
Maple Syrup of course (the real stuff though)
Coconut oil
Butter
Anything you think tastes good, you aren’t having pancakes to be healthy now are you?
