There are a few things in the food world that I can't live without. Of course all food and I have a loving and adoring relationship (just ask my thighs), but you don't mess with my ability to eat, and therefore enjoy, these select foods.
They are chocolate, french fries, and pancakes.
The latter of those 3 delectable delights is a widely beloved classic but I unfortunately don't get to eat it that often due to the fact that I'm wheat/gluten intolerant. That coupled with the fact that I'm trying to cut out excess processed sugars from my diet and eat a somewhat clean(er) diet, pancakes are a rare treat.
While scrolling through the delightful (and addicting) world of Pinterest the other day out of hunger boredom, I came across a gluten free, Paleo friendly recipe. As if that wasn't enticing enough, the next 3 words definitely caught my attention: Three. Ingredient. Pancakes.
And the kicker was I actually had all three ingredients on hand! If that wasn't fate, I don't know what is.
These pancakes might seem easy (which they are) and healthy (which they are), but what it really comes down to are they're surprisingly downright delicious! I'll admit I questioned the pancakes at first-I mean, I'm used to fluffy, wheat pancakes-but once I took my first banana-y filled bite, I was in love.
Not only are they super moist and extremely flavorful, they're packed full of protein and are low carb which makes for a wonderful breakfast to start any person's day right!
3 Ingredient Pancakes
(makes 2-4 pancakes)
Adapted from Lilly of Recipe by Photo
1 ripe banana
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1. Start by peeling, cutting, and mashing your ripe banana in a bowl. Use a fork and make sure you thoroughly mash the banana down to a thick consistency. Once done, add your eggs and cinnamon. Mix well.
**Note:: The batter will look and feel a little runny. That's okay, that's how it should be!
2. Turn on stove to a low to medium heat. Once heated through, use spray or butter to grease the pan so your pancakes won't stick.
3. Pour batter into pan and use your judgement as to how many pancakes you'd like. I suggest medium-sized pancakes which will be easier to flip. 2 to 3 minutes on each side should suffice.
**Note:: These pancakes will be flimsy so be careful when you go to flip them over the first time.
