Healthy Breakfast Pancake

I’m pretty sure most pancakes are breakfast pancakes….but that’s neither here nor there!

I saw this recipe on Tina’s blog Carrots N’ Cake and thought I’d give it a try this morning. I feel like I’m always on the lookout for healthy pancake recipes. I think just because pancakes (and other baked goods) are so ridiculously good, that if I could find a healthier substitute, my life would be complete (yep, that’s all it takes).

My original thought was to take her recipe and change it up by adding various things like coconut flour or protein powder but then I realized my chances of making something inedible would increase drastically so I stuck to the recipe.  By the way, the recipe is super simple: 3 ingredients-I love that.

Before my pancake making this morning, I did my version of a CrossFit workout (my 8 1/2 month pregnant version). I warmed up with some side lunges and walking lunges then dove right into it:

  • 100 Squats
  • 20 Pushups
  • 75 Squats
  • 20 Pushups
  • 50 Squats
  • 20 Pushups
  • 25 Squats
  • 20 Pushups

I’ve done that routine a couple times the last few weeks. I like it because it’s simple and fairly quick, but hard enough. The pushups for me are especially hard. I blame that on my big belly! Most of the time (or all of the time) I do the pushups on my knees.

Anyway, on to the pancake!! I say pancake because it makes 1 gigantic pancake..I suppose I could have made 2 small ones…but one big one is more fun.

So easy..only 3 ingredients: banana, nut butter, and egg! (Here is her recipe). I just blended everything in my little blender then cooked it like a regular old pancake.

I love the smell of coconut oil…can I go back to the beach now?

I tried to flip this bad boy a little too early so definitely give it some time to cook.

I served it up with some strawberries and that’s it!

It was really tasty and super easy. It primarily tastes like banana with some hints of nut butter which is fine by me. The texture is a little different than a standard pancake, but it’s close enough!

I’ll definitely be making this often!

I like the addition of coconut flour to pancakes but the problem I have sometimes is that it dries them out. It gives them a nice texture and taste (and adds lots of fiber), but sometimes it can be a pain so I think I’ll leave this recipe as it is!

Last thing I wanted to share with you guys…something really important…this picture:

Because it seriously cracks me up…and now I have NSYNC in my head.


Are you a pancake lover? Or an NSYNC lover :)?
